Have you heard the amazing news?
This fantastic woman filmmaker has been nominated for an Oscar for Best Director!
Yep, Kathryn Bigelow, director of The Hurt Locker, is the fourth woman ever nominated for Best Director in the 81 year history of the Oscars. No woman has ever won this award. Getting more women in film and changing this has always been a huge part of the Reel Grrls mission.
Kathryn's been raking in the awards around the world- she already won Best Director at the BAFTAs and from the Directors Guild of America. As for the Oscars... Right now we can only cross our fingers and hope with all our might that Kathryn is going to win. But do you know where the best place in Seattle to be when she wins is going to be?
Why, at the Reel Grrls 2nd Annual Oscar Party, of course! You know us reel grrls are going to go bananas when Kathryn walks away with that big, bald statuette.
We've got an amazing night planned- a red carpet, gourmet food, fancy outfits, great short films from our grrls, and awards for Seattle women in film. You'd have to try really hard to not have a good time at this thing.
