The films and names that will compete for the Oscar, the most prestigious award in the cinema world, at the 94th Academy Awards were announced yesterday.
22 Great Movies That Didn’t Get Nominated for the 94th Academy Awards
Films such as Dune, The Power of the Dog, West Side Story, Drive My Car, and Licorice Pizza, which is considered to be Oscar nominations, met expectations by getting nominations in many branches.
There have also been many disappointing films that were not nominated for an Oscar. Although low-budget independent productions such as Red Rocket, Zola, and Pig received great acclaim from the critics and the audience, they could not pass the pre-selection of the Academy members to participate in the Oscar race.
Independent films are unlikely to receive Oscar nominations, so we can’t say that it was a big disappointment. However, Wes Anderson’s “The French Dispatch”, which has received Oscar nominations with every film in recent years, and Oscar Isaac’s Paul Schrader’s “The Card Counter”, which is one of the most admired films of the year, include cinematography, visual effects, costumes, and make-up. It was surprising that “The Green Knight”, whose candidacy in the branches was considered certain, did not receive any nominations.
We do not want the films that received positive reviews from both the critics and the audience, and that won awards from many festivals, to be ignored because they did not take part in the Oscar race. For this reason, we have compiled the films of 2021 that were released but were not nominated for an Oscar.
Here are 22 movies that can’t be on the radar of Academy members, but that you should definitely not miss…
