With The Hurt Locker, Bigelow became the first woman to win the Academy Award for Best Director, the Directors Guild of America Award for Outstanding Directing, the BAFTA Award for Best Direction, and the Critics’ Choice Award for Best Director. Bigelow’s first short film, The Set-Up (1978), is a 20-minute deconstruction of violence in film. Next, she directed Near Dark (1987), which she co-scripted with Eric Red. All three films rethink the conventions of action cinema while exploring gendered and racial politics. Eric Red was also co-writer on Bigelow’s 1990 film, Blue Steel. Blue Steel starred Jamie Lee Curtis as a rookie police officer who is stalked by a psychopathic killer, played by Ron Silver. in 2002 she directed K-19: The Widowmaker, starring Harrison Ford and Liam Neeson, about a group of men aboard the Soviet Union’s first nuclear powered submarine. Despite an action-packed storyline, the film tanked at the box office and was received with mixed reactions by critics, gaining an aggregate score of 58 on Metacritic.
