    Angry Anti-Oscar Billboard On Display In Hollywood

    Anti-Oscar Billboard On Display In Hollywood
    (Hollywood, CA) -- It appears not everyone in Hollywood is thrilled about next Sunday's Academy Awards ceremonies, especially after one looks at a provocative billboard near Sunset and Cahuenga. The sign shows King Kong in drag holding an Oscar and the phrases, "Women directed only seven-percent of the top 200 films of 2005" and "No woman director has ever won the Oscar. Only three have been nominated." The sign was created and funded by a group comprised of 13 women's filmmaking organizations that call themselves the Guerrilla Girls.


    YEAH!!!!!! stupid sexist hollywood!
    Spielberg and that peter Jackson guy are so overrated! anyone could make a "good" movie if they had $200,000,000.00 budget to work with I'm so not impressed boys...

    I haven't seen a movie directed by a woman that I've ever found to be outstanding. Penny Marshall? *snore*.

    Even "girlfight" wasn't that great.

    Women should step it up and make good movied then. I support women cause I'm a woman but sometimes it seems that they're always bringing up the whole "It's because I'm a woman thing". They should just get over it big deal we're woman and we're in no way like a man and I would not want to be, I like having feelings. I really hate it when it comes to sports too, I think that we just can't compare a woman's physical strength to a man's.

    I also can't stand it when women authors try to write a rousing adventure story, with gun battles or swordfights, because half the time the characters stand around talking about their feelings and the adventure bit is sidelined. I've been bored many a time with books like that, because I figure i'll give em a chance.. not one time has it been entertaining

    Steven Spielberg didnt ALWAYS have the $200 million budget he gets now. I dont disagree that hollywood can be rather sexist when it comes to females in non-sexpot roles, but seriously, a person cant blame everything on prejudice.

    And women only directed 7% of the top 200 films of 2005? That doesnt say anything about hollywood being sexist, it says that only 7% of women who directed a film in 2005 made a good enough film to make it to the top 200.

    I'd like to see the statistics of how many of the top 200 films of 2005 were directed by black directors, or latin directors...
