Isn't it supposed to be better for women in the doc world? Haven't there been extraordinary movies by women documentarians made this year? But still there are NO women included in the final five for the DGA award for outstanding documentary.

Five women (out of 15) made it to the short list for the Oscars including Lucy Walker who made two fine films this past year.

The fact that the DGA did not include any of those women -- or others who were left off that list including Laura Poitras -- does not give me a good deal of hope that a woman will make it onto the final Oscar nomination list.

Question- who nominates these awards and how many women are on the nominating committee?
