Gulf Today: Hollywood Actress Natalie Portman wears a stunning black outfit with a cape that has names of female directors not nominated for the Oscar at the ceremony this year. A section of the media posted a video of the gorgeous actress, showing how Portman’s outfit bore the names of Lulu Wang, Greta Gerwig, Lorene Scafaria, Marielle Heller and Mari Diop, and others, reports thewrap.com. “I wanted to recognise the women who were not recognised for their incredible work this year in a subtle way,” she explained.For the second straight year, female directors did not make it to the directing category at the Academy Awards. So when the nominees were announced last month, many people criticised it.
Nominated in the category are Martin Scorsese for “The Irishman”, Todd Phillips for “Joker”, Sam Mendes for “1917”, Quentin Tarantino for “Once Upon a Timea in Hollywood” and Bong Joon Ho for “Parasite”.
