One of the few locks in 2022’s crazy awards season has been the series of wins for director Jane Campion, who is currently the favorite to win the 2022 Oscar for Best Director for her Western drama, The Power of the Dog. With this nomination, Campion continues to make history. 

To a generation of female directors, Campion is an icon, a pioneer whose works helped to carve out a uniquely woman-centered narrative in an industry still dominated by white men. Winning an Oscar for directing would merely confirm what many of us have known for decades: that Campion is one of the best directors working today and her name should be spoken alongside the likes of Scorsese, Spielberg and company.
