For Your Consideration 2017: Fox Searchlight

BATTLE OF THE SEXES || In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women’s movement, the 1973 tennis match between women’s world champion Billie Jean King and ex-men’s-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs was billed as the BATTLE OF THE SEXES and became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time. As the rivalry kicked into high gear, off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. The fiercely private King was not only championing for equality, but also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality. And Riggs, one of the first self-made media-age celebrities, wrestled with his gambling demons. Together, Billie and Bobby served up a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis court, sparking discussions that continue to reverberate today.
