Noah Baumbach praises ‘inspiration’ Greta Gerwig

Idina Menzel admits at Women in Film party to feeling 'really insecure'


The Oscars might’ve overlooked Greta Gerwig in this year’s directors category, but her love Noah Baumbach didn’t.

While doling out his thank yous at Saturday’s Film Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, Calif., the filmmaker gave a shout-out to the “Little Women” director/screenwriter.

“I want to say hi to Greta, who, even though she made a movie too expensive for the Spirit Awards, she’s no less independent than anyone here,” the “Marriage Story” writer/director said, wrapping up his acceptance speech for best screenplay. “You’re amazing and my inspiration in everything.”

Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach attend the Film Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, Calif. on Feb. 8, 2020.

Gerwig’s “Little Women” received six Academy Award nods, including one for best adapted screenplay. For the second year in a row, the Oscars best director category has not included any women. Gerwig was the sole female nominated for “Lady Bird” for the Oscars in 2018. That year she picked up the Spirit Award for best screenplay for the film starring Saoirse Ronan. Gerwig was previously nominated for best female lead Spirit Award for her role in the 2010 flick “Greenberg,” directed by Baumbach.
