Oscars 2022: Jane Campion becomes 3rd woman to win best director
Jane Campion won the Academy Award for best director for “The Power of the Dog,” becoming just the third woman to win the award.
The New Zealand-born movie producer, 67, continues in the strides of Kathryn Bigelow’s success for “The Hurt Locker” in 2010 and Chloé Zhao’s success for “Nomadland” in 2021.
Just seven ladies have at any point been named for best chief in Oscars history.
Campion, who was recently named for her 1994 film “The Piano,” beat down individual chosen people Paul Thomas Anderson (“Licorice Pizza”), Kenneth Branagh (“Belfast”), Ryusuke Hamaguchi (“Drive My Car”) and Steven Spielberg (“West Side Story”).
During her acceptance speech, Campion said, “I love directing because it’s a deep dive into story yet the task of creating a world can be overwhelming.”
“On ‘The Power of the Dog,’ I worked with actors I’m moved to call my friends. They met the challenge of the story with the depth of their gifts.”
