Jane Campion won Best Director Sunday night at the 2022 Critics Choice Award.

She won for the movie, The Power of Dog.

During her acceptance speech, she thanked her fellow nominees.

She then directed a portion of her speech to Venus and Serena Williams who were in the audience. Venus and Serena you’re such marvels.

“However, you don’t play against the guys like I have to. While people in the audience applauded her comments, social media was not pleased.”

Film critic Carolyn Hinds tweeted in response to Jane’s speech.

A sports editor wrote, “anyone who knows anything about Venus and Serena’s careers wouldn’t think to utter something this stupid and insulting.”
