However, after that list went online, fans were extremely disappointed with the list and appalled that no woman and Cameron were removed from the list. One fan said, “I can’t believe the Oscars decided not to nominate female directors so it’s unpredictable.” One fan shared, “CHARLOTTE WELLS DESERVED A SPOT,” while another added, “Martin McDonagh , I think, but why didn’t James Cameron get the nomination, which I don’t understand.” One fan tweeted, “Where are the women?” The Oscars don’t nominate directorial styles like Aftersun over films like The Fabelmans because they’re so over workload think, regardless of gender. The other highest acclaimed films out there were directed by men. There are only 5 spots.” A fan recently commented, “So apparently James Cameron didn’t direct Avatar 2 LOL. What an embarrassing list for the Academy,” while another added: “No nomination for James Cameron!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ridiculous.”
