The nominees for the 94th Academy Awards, aka Oscars, have been announced. Although it seems that there are no big surprises or disappointments in the nominations announced by the presentation of Tracee Ellis Ross and Leslie Jordan, we encountered surprising results when we went down to the categories.
The Surprises and Disappointments of the Oscar Nominations
While the names waiting to be nominated in a few major categories were disappointed, the names that made moviegoers happy were announced in some branches. The awards will be distributed at the ceremony to be held on March 27.
The biggest disappointment is undoubtedly on the Lady Gaga front. Taking part in all of her critics’ associations with the House of Gucci, Gaga failed to earn an Oscar nomination. The second big disappointment was experienced by Denis Villeneuve.
Dune, who was nominated for almost all of the technical branches and received a total of 10 nominations, did not receive a nomination in the best director category. Caitriona Balfe among Belfast’s actress nominations It was also disappointing that he could not write his name.
It was also disappointing that Aaron Sorkin and Tony Kushner were not included in the screenplays, and that names such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Jared Leto, Bradley Cooper, and Jennifer Hudson had an empty year.
So what were the surprises? Kristen Stewart, whose nomination expectation fell to zero after the film was completely deleted from the awards season’s nomination with “Spencer” and Jessie Buckley making the list with “The Lost Daughter” was the most important surprise.
As for the other surprises, it was a pleasing decision that Drive My Car received four nominations and put Hamaguchi in the director category, although it was very popular. The Worst Person in the World’s nomination for the screenplay is also very pleasing.
The surprise nominations of Jesse Plemons and JK Simmons out of the hat, and the fact that the movie Flee made history and was nominated in 3 categories (animation, documentary, international) stood out as developments to add to the surprises.
