    Greta Gerwig is an incredible woman and an amazing director. I love her movie Lady Bird and I admire her. The movie is very touching and emotional in a relationship between a mother and her daugther. She deserves to win an Oscar for the Best Director. The only and the first woman who won an Oscar for The Best Director was Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker in 2010. #TimeUpForTheWomen

    It's amazing that we live in a world where Greta Gerwig and Jordan fucking Peele get nominated but Denis Villeneuve doesn't.

    2:23 I can see that Denis has got a bit of a crush on her which is not at all surprising. :) Him and Greta would be such good friends.

    "Not important with a capital 'I' that people could identify as 'oh this is worthy'"...cuts to Angelina Jolie

    I'm so glad she's there, she's so talented, only thing that pisses me off about this is that she wasn't nominated for golden globes and bafta for best director. Oh well.

    What? We never saw mother and daughter fighting in a movie? What about Höstsonaten (1978)?
