Three female directors will compete for the first time at this year’s Golden Globes, following decades in which it was rare a single woman was mentioned in the category.
Only five female directors have ever been nominated in the Globes’ 78 year history: Sofia Coppola, Jane Campion and Ava DuVernay, while Kathryn Bigelow and Barbra Streisand have both been nominated twice. Only Streisand has won – for Yentl in 1983.
