Trevor Noah Criticizes 2020 Oscar Nominations List

The popular comedian is unsatisfied with the lack of diversity in the recently released nominations list.

South African comedian and popular TV host Trevor Noah has criticized the lack of diversity in the 2020 Oscar nominations list released earlier this week.

The host of The Daily Show particularly pointed out the notable absence of female nominees in the Best Director category. He also criticized the Oscars for snubbing the director of Little Women, Greta Gerwig.

On his show, Trevor didn’t mince words as he said the nominated movies were male-directed and in his words, “very male movies.”

“It’s really strange the movie was nominated for six awards, including Best Picture, Best Screenplay, two acting nominations, but then somehow Greta Gerwig wasn’t nominated for Best Director.”

“How the hell did that happen? Two people were, like, ‘Yeah, what an amazing movie.’ ‘Yeah, did you know the movie directed itself?”

Earlier this week, Trevor picked up three nominations at the NAACP Awards for Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Host in a Talk or News/Information Show, and Outstanding Talk Series.
