    The statistics for nominated women directors are more impressive if you consider those women nominated for Best Foreign Language Film.

    Was surprised at how many quality films are cited. Surprised how good they are, and that they slipped from memory. Most, perhaps all, are Oscar caliber. Certainly, a couple should have been nominated. 'Meek's Cutoff' and 'Higher Ground' stand out, but really, so do the rest.

    Point well made.
