"Blue Is The Warmest Color"

Best Film. Best Director. Best Foreign (Language) Film. These are the categories where women filmmakers have been completely shut out by Oscar and Cesar this year.

France's answer to the Academy Awards proved that "liberte, egalite, fraternite" is really just about that last one, at least this year. Cesar comes out looking a smidge better than Oscar does -- two of its Best Cinematography nods and three of its Best Editing nods have gone to women. The Oscars had no female nominees in those categories this year. 

Blue is the Warmest Color received eight nominations, including Best Film, Best Director for Abdellatif Kechiche, Best Actress for Lea Seydoux, Best Female Newcomer for Adele Exarchopoulos, Best Adapted Screenplay for Kechiche and co-writer Ghalya Lacroix, and Best Editing for Camille Toubkis, Albertine Lastera & Jean-Marie Lengelle.

    Too bad Rebecca Zlotowskis "Grand Central" didn't get more nominations. It's a great film!

    Maybe they should add a Carla Bruni's sister for a directing award even though her movie was terrible, but she's a woman. That's the road to equality!
