5 Best Female Directors In Hollywood
The girls are creating quite a stir in Hollywood, aren’t they? Well, we didn’t mean the actresses on screen, we meant the ladies behind the camera taking charge of everything. Yep, you got it right. We’re talking about the top female directors of Hollywood. Let’s check out who the best ones are.
1. Sofia Coppola
We aren’t surprised to see Francis Ford Coppola’s daughter making her mark in Hollywood. You’d expect that out of a legend’s genes right? But really, this lady must be credited in her own right for the masterpieces she’s made until now. You must’ve seen ‘The Virgin Suicides’ and ‘Lost In Translation, right? Well, thats Sofia Coppola for you.
2. Kathryn Bigelow
If you haven’t seen Hurt Locker yet, we’d like to push you to get the DVD, ladies. Of course we know it’s not the usual romantic-comedies stuff, but hey, all women directors in Hollywood are not made of gloss. And we’re surely proud of this young achiever who has swept 6 Oscars for ‘Hurt Locker’, that too on the subject of Bomb Diffusers in the US Army in Afghanistan. Keep up the good work Kathryn.
3. Mira Nair
You may or may not have heard of this Indian prodigy who took Hollywood by storm in 2001. She released her first feature film ‘Monsoon Wedding’ and followed it up with some great hits like ‘Vanity Fair’ in 2004 and ‘The Namesake’ in 2007. We bet you’ll love seeing a mix of traditional and contemporary Indian themes in her films.
