Golden Globes: Fans React to 'Wonder Woman' Snub and Zero Nomination for Female Director

The fact that the Golden Globes nominated five male directors in best director category and there's no single nomination for a superhero movie only irritates people even more.

AceShowbiz - While some are still celebrating their Golden Globe nominations, others unfortunately didn't make the cut to the list that was announced by Kristen Bell, Garrett Hedlund, Sharon Stone and Alfre Woodard on Monday morning, December 11. Among the biggest snubs were "Wonder Woman" and "The Big Sick".

Despite receiving a lot of praises for the best superhero movie of the year, the Gal Gadot-starring movie didn't land a single nomination at the upcoming Golden Globe Awards. More surprisingly, director Patty Jenkins wasn't nominated in the best movie director category. The fact that the HFPA omitted other female directors only irritated people even more.

Some of them have taken to Twitter to express their disappointment. "greta gerwig directed lady bird. 197 reviews. 99|percent| on rotten tomatoes. patty jenkins directed wonder woman. one of the biggest movies of the year. critical success as well. yet the Golden Globes chose to nominate 5 men in their 'Best Director' category instead. let it sink in," one criticized.

"So glad all men were nominated for Best Director at the Golden Globes since no women were real contenders.. oh wait.. didn't you see Wonder Woman and Lady Bird?? Come on @goldenglobes," another Twitter user remarked.

One other vowed to never watch the Golden Globe Awards as a protest. "Anyways Wonder Woman was snubbed by the golden globes...catch me watching that awards show never," Kacey Huffty wrote.

Some others think the Golden Globes snubbed superhero movies in general. "For those who think @PattyJenks was snubbed- the Golden Globes aren't fans of superhero movies. I hope she gets a nomination for an Oscar. #WonderWoman deserves a nomination," someone pointed out.

Another similarly commented, "Lack of nominations for Lego Batman, Captain Underpants and Wonder Woman make the Golden Globes seem anti-superhero."

While Greta Gerwig wasn't nominated for best director, "Lady Bird" is still vying for best musical or comedy title alongside "The Disaster Artist", "Get Out", "The Greatest Showman" and "I, Tonya". Additionally, its star Saoirse Ronan is up for best actress in musical or comedy, competing against Judi Dench ("Victoria & Abdul"), Helen Mirren ("The Leisure Seeker"), Margot Robbie ("I, Tonya") and Emma Stone ("Battle of the Sexes").

Meanwhile, "The Big Sick", which was written by Kumail Nanjiani and his wife Emily V. Gordon based on their real-life love story, also didn't get nominated in any categories despite getting a lot of praises from critics.
