PLUS - there wasn't a single female protagonist in any of the "Best Picture" Nominees.
For example, there are over 47 male actors and 2 female actors in Grand Budapest Hotel. Maybe 3 with speaking parts. And most of the Oscar nominated films this year have a male protagonist (Imitation Game; Theory of Everything; Whiplash) or are from the male point of view: Boyhood and Birman.
Only the male point of view seems important.
Of course there are the token female roles such as Julianne Moore in Still Alice, and Reese Witherspoon in Wild. But I'm talking about the big money-makers. The films that get the most funding and support.
We need more women directors, writers and producers creating movies that portray women's lives, dreams and goals — not just their romantic aspirations. Women are scientists, lawyers, makers, creators, inventors, doctors, mayors.. we need to portray women of adventure, who aspire to be more than just love-sick romance and fashion-driven beings.
This is the year I am finally getting my work out to the world. I'm sick of waiting, and sick of being a perfectionist.
