Outcry over the Golden Globes failing to nominate any women in the category of Best Director has reached the world of comic book movies, with a petition now circulating for the Hollywood Foreign Press, the Globes' governing body, to reconsider and offer a nomination to Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins.
The petition, started on ThePetitionSite.com, makes the following pitch: "Please sign this petition if you would like to see Hollywood Foreign Press revisit the Golden Globe nominations and include Petty Jenkins, director of this year's blockbuster hit Wonder Woman!"
"In an industry with glaring gender disparities, the Golden Globes ought to honor women who have gone above and beyond to cultivate success," the petition, written by a user named Carol N., continues. "The roadblocks women face in an industry dominated by male decisionmakers are not to be ignored, and the success of this film proved that Jenkins is a artisan who can move audiences to places of awe, tears, and inspiration."
The petition has 5,825 signatures at the time of this writing.
