National Blog Posting Month.

This means for the month of March, I’ll be posting everyday. Shocker, right? Anyway, the theme for the month is STRANGE(R). Interesting?

For today, I’m posting about a woman winning the Academy Award for Best Achievement in Directing. This has never happened – so it will be unusual (strange) when it eventually does. And this could be the year for Kathryn Bigelow.

Bigelow is nominated for “The Hurt Locker,” tagline – War is a drug. The powerful film follows SFC James as he leads his soldiers in bomb disarmament. In “The Hurt Locker,” Bigelow created a film that both shows the horror and the humanity involved in war. And for a directing job so awesome no one can say “it was just good for a girl,” Bigelow gets my vote for Best Director.

UPDATE: For more info about the surfeit of women in Hollywood check The Women’s Media Center and their awesome video –
