It is true - in the 80 years since the Academy has been giving out Oscars for Best Director, not a single women has been awarded the honor.

To draw attention in support of female directors in film, X Factor Filmmakers has launched a new bracket contest called "Best Female Directed Feature Film Contest".

Welcome to the board, Jungmother! That really is a shame the way female directors have been passed over. I didn't realize that! Thanks for the link, too!
