Steve Martin takes major swipe at Oscars blunder as he addresses being ‘demoted’ from show 1

“Vaginas?” Steve suggested, that was met with an almighty gasp from the audience.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences received criticism for failing to nominate any female directors this year.

Actress Natalie Portman, made a statement on the red carpet earlier in the evening, with her Dior cape embroidered with the names of women who directed movies last year and weren’t nominated at the 92nd Academy Awards.

Names on her cape included Lorene Scafaria, Lulu Wang, Greta Gerwig, Marielle Heller, Melina Matsoukas, Alma Har’el, Céline Sciamma and Mati Diop.

In the past, only five women have been nominated for best director, and only one — Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker — has won.
