Little Women is heading to the 2020 Oscars with six nominations: best picture, adapted screenplay (Greta Gerwig), actress (Saoirse Ronan), supporting actress (Florence Pugh), original score (Alexandre Desplat) and costume design (Jacqueline Durran).
Based on Louisa May Alcott's 1868 novel, the film follows the March sisters Amy (Pugh), Jo (Ronan), Beth (Eliza Scanlen) and Meg (Emma Watson) as they navigate young adulthood.
The cast also includes Meryl Streep, Laura Dern, Timothée Chalamet, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, James Norton, Louis Garrel and Chris Cooper. In addition to penning the script, Gerwig directed the film.
