Did You Know?


After Lina Wertmüller for Seven Beauties (1975) and Jane Campion for The Piano (1993), Sofia Coppola was only the third woman to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director. The only other women to be so nominated are Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker (2008) and Greta Gerwig for Lady Bird (2017). Bigelow is the only one of the five to have won the award.


Ms. Kawasaki: Welcome to Tokyo.
Bob: Thank you very much.
Ms. Kawasaki: My name is Kawasaki. Nice to meet you.
Bob: I've heard of you. Thank you.
