2002 – Year Of The Woman In Hollywood

It’s been a great year for women in Hollywood. “Not just the sheer number of good women’s roles, but their breadth and range in terms of age and ethnicity, made this a watershed year. A genuine one, not the phoney annus mirabilis of a decade ago when a defensive Hollywood gave itself undeserved brownie points by declaring 1992 ‘The Year of the Woman’ – an especially hollow gesture in a mediocre year in which the best woman’s role went to a man: Jaye Davidson in The Crying Game.”
