Los Angeles, USA
Once again, no director was nominated to the Oscar awards.
“Congratulations to all these men,” said the presenter Issa Rae intentionally, after announcing to the five filmmakers nominated. Contenders such as Greta Gerwig for “Little Women” (“little women”) or Lulu Wang for “The Farewell” (“The farewell”), are not included.
And continuing a worrying trend that the Academy Awards don’t seem to resolve: in the categories of performance was almost a #OscarTanBlanco, with just one nominee of color, Cynthia Erivo of “Harriet”, among the 20 candidates. The winner of the Golden Globe Awkwafina (“The Farewell”) do not have the opportunity to compete.
It was also a morning hard for large figures like Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and Robert De Niro.
Below, some of the greatest slights:
IT’S NOT JLO!
At 50, Jennifer Lopez has enjoyed great moments lately, and his acclaimed performance in “Hustlers” (“Scammers of Wall Street”) was considered to be his best chance for Oscar to date. But, unfortunately, that will not be this year. Despite the fact that it was nominated for a Golden Globe and other awards, and received the greatest praise of her career for her portrayal of a ballerina nudist in New York, Lopez was not the Monday between the candidates.
OH… AND NOT BEY?!
JLo was not the only pop star held that fell short. Beyoncé seemed to be aimed to receive a nomination for best original song for “Spirit”, of “The Lion King” (“The lion king”), but the issue has not roared with enough force. Among the candidates were Erivo, a double nominee this year for “Stand Up”; and Elton John and Bernie Taupin for “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” of “Rocketman”.
“Little Women” was nominated for best film, and many felt that Gerwig is worth a second nomination as a director, after which he received by “Lady Bird” in 2018. A new citation would have become the only filmmaker twice nominated in this category. But the nominations Monday once again reflected a continuing trend of not taking into account women. To date, only one director has been boosted with the award: Kathryn Bigelow for “The Hurt Locker” (“Zone of fear”). Other directors held overlooked this year were Wang with “The Farewell”, Lorene Scafaria for “Hustlers”, Melina Matsoukas for “Queen & Slim”, and Marielle Heller for “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” (“A good day in the neighborhood”).
… AND HER HUSBAND
Gerwig shares her life with Noah Baumbach, the director of “Marriage Story” (“Story of a marriage”), and now part of your own marital history is the fact that BOTH were excluded from the candidacy of address despite the fact that his films were best picture nominees.
THERE WILL BE AWKWAFINA, OR FAREWELL
When Awkwafina won a Golden Globe earlier this month for “The Farewell”, it was a moment of pride: it was the first victory for an actress of asian origin in the main category. It was anticipated that the nominate for an Oscar, but it was not among the candidates. In fact, the highly praised film was completely desairada.
“FROZEN 2” LOST IN THE FOREST
The success of Disney “Frozen 2” is not received heat on Monday; the sequel was out in the open _ or lost in the forest, as it says in your song. Yes received one nomination for best original song for “Into the Unknown”. But, in the best animated feature film, was displaced by “How to Train a Dragon: The Hidden World” (“How to train your dragon 3”), “Toy Story 4”, “I Lost My Body” (“I Lost my body”), “Klaus” and “Missing Link” (“Mr. Link”).
ADAM SANDLER, A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH
Sandler was continually praised for his charismatic interpretation of a jeweler desperate in the exhilarante brothers movie Safdie “Uncut Gems” (“Diamonds in the rough”). His fans hoped to see him among the candidates for the Oscar, but the crowded category of best actor not left him space.
Much is said of the ingenious edition of “1917”, made to make you believe that the movie was filmed in a single plane sequence. But the editor, Lee Smith was not among the nominees, although the film itself received a dozen nominations.
Among other desairados: Robert De Niro for “The Irishman”, Eddie Murphy for “Dolemite is My Name” (“Dolemite”), Jamie Foxx for “Just Mercy” (“Looking for justice”), Christian Bale for “Ford v Ferrari,” and Taron Egerton for “Rocketman”.
