  1. Vince

    Yes, I agree with Jonathan. Barbra has been overlooked and it is shameful. She truly is the talent of the century.

  2. Jonathan

    Barbra Streisand has been snubbed for Best Director not only for “The Prince Of Tides” (1991) but for “Yentl” (1983) as well… She always gets her “Best Picture” nominations… but who made the film? The director. Not alone of course, anyone who knows anything about Streisand is that she is detail obsessed!
    But time after time… she is overlooked by the Oscars for her directorial efforts.
    She deserved to have been the first woman to win best director.
