The 91-year-old Italian director had Isabella Rossellini acting as her translator while accepting her honorary Oscar on Sunday night at the Academy’s Governors Awards in Hollywood.

“She would like to change the Oscar to a feminine name,” Rossellini said. “She would like to call it ‘Anna.’”

Wertmüller was the first woman nominated for a directing Oscar for 1976’s “Seven Beauties.” Since then, only four other female directors have been nominated in the category with only one win going to Kathryn Bigelow for “The Hurt Locker.”

Sophia Loren was walked onto the stage by Jon Hamm to help introduce Wertmüller. Also presenting was “Little Women” director Greta Gerwig, who said, “I learned the name Lina Wertmüller before I had seen her films.”

Jane Campion said, “How do you correct centuries of patriarchal domination? It started with Lina Wertmuller.”

Earlier in the program, Geena Davis was honored with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for her work fighting for gender-parity in media through her Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media. “The message we are sending [in society] is that men and boys are far more valuable to us than women and girls,” she said.

Constance Wu presented to Davis as did her “A League of Their Own” co-star Tom Hanks. “The Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award is given to ‘an individual in the motion picture arts and sciences whose humanitarian efforts have brought credit to the industry,’” Hanks said. “So is there a better example of that than creating an entire organization desiderated to providing young girls with examples of women on screen who are smart, who are resilient, who are hardworking, who are inspiring, who are instinctively talented and who are actually played by women who are employed in the business of show?”

Lady Gaga is in 'a lot of pain' following onstage fall

  Lady Gaga is in 'a lot of pain' following onstage fall Lady Gaga is in 'a lot of pain' following her onstage fall the occurred on on Thursday, October 17, 2019.The day after she took the major tumble, falling off the stage and landing in the audience pit flat on her back, the singer attended her makeup artist, Sarah Tanno's, bachelorette party. However, she confessed that she hadn't recovered.

Davis called for more female characters in movies. “Here’s my theory of change: nearly every sector of society has a huge gender disparity problem,” she said. “But there’s one category of gross inequality where the under-representation of women can be fixed absolutely overnight: on screen.”

Wes Studi became the first Native American Oscar winner when he was presented with his gold statute by his “Hostiles” co-star Christian Bale. “When I think of Wes, I think, ‘My god, what a face.’ A face that is etched with history, with experience, character and dignity and every emotion under the sun,’” Bale said.

Receiving some of the evening’s loudest applause and cheers, Studi held the Oscar in his hand and exclaimed, “I’d simply like to say, it’s about time.”

Also presenting to Studi was Q’Orianka Kelcher. “Wes has revolutionized how indigenous people are portrayed in cinema,” she said. “He has inspired, encouraged and lit a path, showing us all what is possible, that one person can make a difference.”
