Celluloid Ceiling

From Film Experience:

"Another note regarding snubs. No cinematography mentions for either Australia or The Wrestler means the record still stands: no female DP has ever been nominated for that particular honor."

What the hell? No female DP has ever been nominated? Film still really is an old boys' game. Forget Clinton and the glass ceiling in politics. It's even harder to get ahead as a woman in Hollywood.

Of course, the Oscars have been reduced to insignificance anyway.
