Answer; not as many as we want.
I've stayed relativity quite on this years Oscars, that is because this year I have only seen a fraction of the movies nominated. Ever since the end of Orange Wednesdays (BOGOF Cinema tickets for Orange or EE phones users) ended, I've spent more of my time watching old films on Netflix than the latest blockbusters. So I am sad see that not many of the films passed the Bechdel test. Lots of controversy with this years Oscars though, so I am not surprised!
We take a look at this year’s contenders, and whether they pass the Bechdel-Wallace test (which asks whether a film has two named women who talk to each other about something other than a man). The sad thing is that while there are some great female-led films this year, they are not the frontrunners to win Best Picture, and some (most notably the breathtaking Carol and Inside Out) were not even nominated. The nominees that are left are all high-quality efforts that are worthy of your time – but they show a picture of Hollywood that is still casually, and often unnecessarily, focuses on stories about straight, white men.
