16th Annual WIF (Women in Film) Oscar PartyNeueHouse Hollywood, HollywoodHollywood’s women joined hands in solidarity by kicking off Oscar weekend at the 16th Annual WIF (Women in Film) Oscar party, celebrating the 65 women nominated for Academy Awards for their work in 2002.Solidarity is still needed, as the dismal recent studies that show women received only 27% of the possible non-acting nominations, despite being nearly 50% of the worldwide population.
That fact was part of the night’s conversation, including last year’s Oscar-winning screenwriter Sian Heder (“Coda”), who told the collected crowd that, “There’s a kind of camaraderie with women filmmakers right now.
I feel like the louder we are for each other, the more we can amplify each other’s voices, support each other’s stories, shout about each other’s movies – that’s how we move this forward.”Joining the crowded bash were women like Ruth E.
Carter, who later at Sunday’s Academy Awards made history by winning her second Oscar for Costume Design. That makes her the only Black woman to own two Oscars.Many other women, from actresses Marlee Matlin, Dakota Johnson, Garcelle Beauvais, Li Jun Li and Jordana Brewster to producers, directors and other creatives including Chloe Zhao, Gail Berman, Diane Warren and a legion of others added their presence to supporting the cause of making women a bigger part of the filmmaking process.Read more on thewrap.com
