Terry’s Picks: Director Diversity, Equal Pay, Golden Globes

What’s wrong with this picture? The Hollywood Reporter’s director roundtable on Sundance TV only featured middle-aged men. Was that the best they could do?

Equal pay: California’s new equal pay law, SB358, has been dubbed “the toughest law in the nation.” It supports women who demand to be paid the same as male colleagues in “substantially similar” positions, allows for more transparency and includes an anti-retaliation clause. Bravo!

Golden Globes: I was delighted to see that 60% of the films nominated for Best Picture – in both the Drama and Comedy/Musical categories – feature female-driven storylines.
