The Oscars can be considered an outdated formality inherited from the 20th century, or a film award that appeals to a modern audience, striving to give earrings to all sisters. Nevertheless, the Oscars remain the main film event of the year. They are waiting for him, preparing for him, and then – be sure to discuss the results.
We are in AdMe.ru turned to the lists of winners and nominees of recent decades. From the injustice of some decisions I want to tear my hair. And at the end of the article you will find a bonus – the story of an artist who overslept the ceremony because he did not believe in his own victory.
Lady Gaga – “House of Gucci” (2021)
For the role of Patricia Reggiano in the “House of Gucci” Lady Gaga was nominated for literally everything awards, including the Golden Globe and BAFTA. To the surprise of many, the actress was not included in the list of Oscar nominees.
By the way, the film was still nominated in the category “Best makeup and hairstyles ». And Lady Gaga, who won the Oscar in 2019 for best song, did not fail to congratulate the makeup artists and hairdressers who worked on “Gucci House”.
Kristen Stewart – “Siels-Maria” (2014)
Twilight star and owner anti-premiums Golden Raspberry Kristen Stewart received her first Oscar nomination this year. The Film Academy noted the actress’ brilliant biographical performance drama Spencer.
Such attention could be expected before. In 2015, Kristen was awarded the French Oscar – Cesar Award – for her supporting role in the film “Siels-Maria”. Then the actress became the first American to receive this prestigious award. And many critics and movie buffs expectedthat Kristen will also be nominated for an Oscar, but that didn’t happen.
Emma Stone – “Cruella” (2021)
The story of the formation of the villain Cruella De Ville from the cartoon about Dalmatians received 2 nominations this year for Oscar – in the categories “Best Costume Design” and “Best Makeup and Hairstyles”. But the acting awards bypassed “Cruella” and the lead actress Emma Stone.
Prior to that, the actress was shortlisted for an Oscar three times, and in 2017 she still received the coveted statuette for playing in musical La La Land. Maybe it’s not Cruella’s time yet. Stone signed a contract to participate in the sequel to the picture, so that her heroine will return to the screens in the near future.
Jennifer Lopez – “Strippers” (2019)
Inimitable Jennifer Lopez, who for a role in the film “Strippers” has learned to masterfully manage pylonwas nominated for literally all the prestigious awards in 2020. Film Academy also bypassed the actress.
Lopez continued to work. It seems that in her latest film “The First Counter” the star hid the message between the lines. Her heroine is a successful singer who feels some bias from critics, because they have not nominated her for a Grammy for many years.
In 2009 “Avatar” broke all conceivable and unconceivable records, becoming the highest grossing film in the history of cinema. The film was nominated for an Oscar as many as 9 times. As a result, the work of director James Cameron and the production team was not awarded, and the film won only 3 technical Oscars. It is amusing that the Lord of the Storm was recognized as the best film of that year. This picture was taken by Cameron’s ex-wife – Catherine Bigelow. She took the statuette for the best directing.
Adam Sandler – “Uncut Diamonds” (2019)
We used to see Adam Sandler in a comedic role, but in the drama Uncut Diamonds he played a serious role that critics predicted he would nomination at the Oscars. Alas, the miracle did not happen, but Sandler responded with humor. The actor joked that although academics don’t like him, he won’t have to wear costumes anymore.
Mark Wahlberg – “Boogie Nights” (1997)
“Boogie Nights” is one of the best movies Paul Thomas Anderson with the young Mark Wahlberg in the lead role. Unfortunately, the picture was undeservedly ignored. Academics did not nominate either the director’s work or the leading actor’s play. Yes, Mark Wahlberg was a newcomer to show business, but he worked every scene in the film 100% and clearly deserved his place on the shortlist of the film award.
La La Land (2016)
Everyone who follows the movie news remembers the fiasco that happened during the ceremony in 2017. La La Land was named Best Picture of the Year and won an Oscar error. Actors, producers and the director already had time to come on stage and say thank you speeches when it turned out that the statuette was to go to the film crew of “Moonlight”. It turned out awkward.
Theron Edgerton – “Rocketman” (2019)
That’s exactly who the film academy is missed in appearance, this is Theron Edgerton, who played Elton John in the biopic “Rocketman”. The actor received the Golden Globe for this role, so the experts were confident, if not in victory, then at least in the Oscar nomination. The only explanation for what happened is the unprecedented competition among the actors. Recall that then the statuette was awarded to Joaquin Phoenix for his role in the movie “Joker”.
Leonardo DiCaprio – “Survivor” (2015)
Leo received the long-awaited statuette 22 years after his first Oscar nomination. The Film Academy celebrated the actor’s acting movie “Survivor” in 2016. Fans of the artist’s talent believe that the academics are very late and DiCaprio should have won the Oscar much earlier – for the tapes “Wolf of Wall Street”, “Django released”, “What gnaws Gilbert Grape” or “Aviator”. But all is well, that ends well. And not every actor can boast of 7 Oscar nominations.
Bonus: Eminem – The Eighth Mile (2002)
In the film “The Eighth Mile”, Eminem played a novice rapper-freestyler, suspiciously similar in his fate to the artist himself. The academy noted nomination the main track “Lose Yourself”, which was then played by all radio stations. Not only did the public not believe in victory, but Eminem himself: he simply overslept the ceremony. The composition was recognized as the best, and the statuette was accepted on behalf of the artist by producer Luis Resto. Eminem managed to close the gestalt only 17 years later: in 2020 he triumphantly performed the winning song at the Oscars.
And what decision of the film academy can you not come to terms with? Who won the Oscar undeservedly, and who was unforgivably deprived of attention at the awards?
