Well, I Guess the Kid Doesn't Stay in the Picture if She's a Girl.

Oh, movies. How could you break my heart so? Don't you know how much I love you? I grew up loving you. Movie theater gift certificates were a standard Christmas gift in our household. I guess I've always known somewhere in my heart that you may not be doing right by me. Twice in one day, I was confronted with the fact that you most certainly aren't. I'm not really surprised. After all, the first woman to win an Oscar for best director was Kathryn Bigelow. IN 2009! For The Hurt Locker, a movie with an almost exclusively male cast. I'm hopeful that maybe once movies are more easily made outside of the studio system, with more female screenwriters, directors, etc. that this can change. I'm going to attempt to add the two videos that got me thinking about this today.
