Another Hollyweird Hypcrite: Natalie Portman laments snubbed female directors as her own production company features just one female director — herself

Well, well, well…what do you know, we have another Hollyweird hypocrite!

At the Oscars Sunday night, actress Natalie Portman made a “bold statement” about the snubbed female directors by wearing a cape that included all their names. Bold, indeed.

Portman wanted to recognize the women who were snubbed for their incredible work this year in her own “subtle” way. Subtle, indeed.

Even more subtle? Having your own production company that has only hired ONE female director: YOURSELF.

From Insider (via Yahoo): Natalie Portman wore a custom Dior gown complete with a cape to the Oscars on Sunday, with the cape featuring the names of female directors who weren’t nominated for the best director Oscar.

However, Portman has come under fire with some people calling the Oscar-winner a hypocrite.

Twitter user OhMyMithrandir pointed out that Portman’s production company, handsomecharliefilms, has only ever hired one female director — Portman herself.

While there a total of eight films to date (with three more announced), the handsomecharliefilms has never hired a female director other than Portman.

You’d think that Portman would hire other women directors in order to give them an opportunity to have their work recognized. Apparently her production company has a bias in only hiring men directors and, of course, herself.

Typical Hollyweird hypocrite.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA: Oscars Hit All-Time Low

They might have done better had they let Gervais host:

From Yahoo: In the latest TV ratings, ABC’s broadcast of the 2020 Oscars averaged 23.6 million total viewers and a 5.3 demo rating, down 20 and 30 percent from last year’s first host-less outing.

This year’s Academy Awards thus hit new lows in both measures, lagging behind the previous “record holder” — the 2018 Oscars hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.

The Oscars outdrew both this award season’s Grammys (which were steady-ish with 18.7 million viewers) and the Golden Globes (which dipped to 18.3 million viewers), making it TV’s most-watched entertainment special in a year (since the previous Oscars), though the Grammys edged out the Oscars in the coveted 18-49 demo (having scored a 5.4 rating).

Last year’s host-less Oscars delivered 29.6 million total viewers and a 7.7 demo rating in Nielsen finals.
