From my latest Forbes post on the potentially record-breaking awards season to come: 

"I know it is overly optimistic and a tad delusional to think that women could get two nominations for best director, but there are two women -- Angelina Jolie for Unbroken and Ava DuVernay for Selma -- who should get HARD looks come awards time. The fact that both women have made movies about men will just enhance their chances of getting noticed."
