Sunday night’s annual Academy Awards resulted in five losses and the outrage of Greta Gerwig’s fans. Lady Bird, an atypical coming-of-age story, follows the trials of a teenager so relatable it scared us more than Get Out did. Even though the comedy received striking reviews and five Oscar nominations, many fans of Gerwig’s first film blew up on social media in response to the filmmaker going home empty-handed.

Gerwig’s film reflected another sense of much-needed progress in Hollywood. Being only the fifth female director nominated for an Oscar in that past 90 years, her very first film shows exactly why representation matters. Her story of home, first love, and the college experience all blend perfectly into a realistic, heartfelt way. Viewers related to the comedy’s authenticity and the beautiful performances by Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalfe. Both women were nominated for Best Leading and Supporting Actress.

Although the witty and sincere story didn’t achieve the gold, people hating on the Academy for the losses should probably drink some tea and calm down. Yes, Lady Bird deserved all of its nominations and perhaps a win. However, Greta Gerwig has already confirmed on A24’s podcast that she plans on making three more films about Sacramento. In hopes of creating a “quartet” of films, her stories will continue to thrive and hit us where we’re most vulnerable yet again. So for all Gerwig fans, we can be sure to see more relatable stories to come.
And, if you haven’t seen Lady Bird yet for some inexcusable reason, maybe the five nominations and a record-breaking Rotten Tomatoes streak will change your mind. The film is now available for purchase on DVD, Youtube, and the iTunes Store.
