Gender differences permeate human behavior, including creativity and aesthetics. More specifically, there is ample reason for believing that gender may bear some relation with the cinematic product. The substantive issue raised in the preceding paragraph can become the subject of additional empirical research on cinematic creativity and aesthetics. Additional empirical analyses of award-winning movies may help reduce that unfortunate ignorance. The preceding study showed that the various awards offered by professional and critical organizations display a respectable agreement on the differential merits of various contributions to filmmaking. The explicit purpose of film awards—which soon became known as the Oscars—was to honor the best contributions to filmmaking each year. A major event in the recognition of film as an art form was the founding of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 1927. For instance, films have been frequently content analyzed to discern contemporary sexist stereotypes and gender roles.
