Oscar predictions are a tricky business, but there if there is one thing we can predict with utter certainty about 2020’s ceremony, it is this: The winner for Best Director will be a man.

We know this for certain because no women directors were nominated. In the 92-year history of the Oscars only five women have been nominated for Best Director (and only one has ever won – Kathryn Bigelow for “The Hurt Locker”), so this isn’t a shock. But considering more women directed movies in 2019 than ever before, and many of these movies were excellent, it’s pretty disappointing.

Check out some of these great 2019 movies directed by women, all of which are available on DVD:
