Please sign this petition if you would like to see Hollywood Foreign Press revisit the Golden Globe nominations and include Patty Jenkins, director of this year's blockbuster hit Wonder Woman!
Wonder Woman is the most successful live-action film directed by a woman. It grossed over $821 million worldwide, making it the eighth highest-grossing film of 2017. It was also the 14th highest-grossing film franchise of all time.
Rotten Tomatoes listed the movie as #1 on its list of the "50 Best Superhero Movies of All Time", and the American Film Institute selected it as one of the top 10 Movies of the Year.
In an industry with glaring gender disparities, the Golden Globes ought to honor women who have gone above and beyond to cultivate success. The roadblocks women face in an industry dominated by male decisionmakers are not to be ignored, and the success of this film proved that Jenkins is a artisan who can move audiences to places of awe, tears, and inspiration.
