And similar to that — snaps — Disney went from zero to 13 for Avengers: Endgame‘s performing Oscars marketing campaign. It’s attainable Disney was simply ready to determine who to submit for consideration, or perhaps the backlash to Robert Downey Jr. not being submitted was sufficient for The Powers That Be to determine to throw everybody into the combo.
At any charge, in the event you take a look at the official Disney Studios Awards web site, the “Consider” part for Avengers: Endgame has been up to date. It used to have the director, screenplay, modifying, and different manufacturing classes, however nothing for performing.
Now you may see eight names nominated for Best Supporting Actor and 5 for Best Supporting Acctress. Looks like they’re going the old-fashioned Game of Thrones route, placing everybody within the “supporting” classes as an equal ensemble, versus elevating, say, Robert Downey Jr. right into a lead function. Smart transfer to present him a greater probability of truly being nominated — even when he would not need that anyway?
Here are the actors being submitted for Academy Awards consideration, within the order Disney has them listed:
Surprise? To me, a few of these names are very shocking.
Disney has to know completely properly that any nominations are longshots. Robert Downey Jr. is the perfect guess — and co-director Joe Russo made an impassioned argument for why RDJ deserves an Oscar for Avengers: Endgame. But it was a staff effort to make this film.
That mentioned, a few of these are REALLY stretching it. Brie Larson for Avengers: Endgame? She’s already an Oscar winner, and if you wish to put her title in for Captain Marvel, have at it. She was barely on this film. Same for Don Cheadle, which might be why they’re on the backside of their respective submission lists. Scarlett Johansson had some highly effective scenes as Black Widow, however out of all of the occasions she might’ve been nominated for an Oscar, she has but to get a nod. I could be stunned if the Academy began with Endgame.
But, anyway, good for Disney for throwing help behind the Avengers stars. It cannot harm. And they will say they did it. So it is a win-win even when nobody truly will get an Oscar nomination.
When will we all know if this plan labored out? The 92nd Academy Awards nominations will probably be introduced Monday, January 13, 2020. The ceremony will probably be held February 9, 2020 and air on ABC. Any Academy members who in some way managed to keep away from Endgame in theaters can watch it on Disney+ beginning day one. Or simply watch the screeners Disney will ship.
Your scorching take: Do you assume any stars from Avengers: Endgame will probably be nominated for Academy Awards? If so, simply RDJ or not? Who would you need to see get a nod?
