Comments on the Oscar Nominations

Posted on March 15, 2021 at 6:03 pm

I’m quoted in an NBC story about today’s Oscar nominations. While, as always, some of my favorites were overlooked, I am delighted by seeing so many deserving filmmakers recognized.

“I let out a little yelp when I saw the nominees,” said Nell Minow, a film critic and corporate governance expert, pointing to strong showings by low-key, thoughtful dramas such as Lee Isaac Chung’s “Minari” and Chloé Zhao’s “Nomadland.”

“We’re seeing a lot more diversity partly because the normative, white male blockbusters had to step aside last year,” Minow said, referring to the various movies that were postponed amid the pandemic.
