No women were nominated in the best adapted screenplay category.

Women also got nominated in two of the slots for best documentary.  Katie Galloway & Kelly Duane de la Vega were nominated for Better this World and Hetty Naaijkens-Retel Helmrich was nominated as co-writer on Position Among the Stars.
