The surprises and disappointments with the Oscar nominations


What were the surprises of the Oscar nominations? That's what Juan Carlos Arciniegas wonders, who on the other hand celebrates the inclusion of his favorite film of the year.

(CNN Spanish) -

Once the list of nominees was known, the complaints did not wait.

The fact that the actress Viola Davis was not included in the group of nominees was something that generated the repudiation of her fans, but there were also pleasant surprises such as the fact that the actress Andrea Riseborough has appeared in the list of best leading actress without having campaigned for This and with a movie that almost nobody saw: “To Leslie”.

Today it is also being discussed why Hollywood continues to almost ignore women in the category of best director.

This time the five candidates are men, despite the fact that last year that statuette went to the New Zealander Jane Campion.

The fact that "Everything Everywhere All at Once" turned out to be the most nominated film for the 95th edition of the Oscar should not surprise many, since in recent months it has been sounding strong and also winning awards for part of its cast and even for the best. movie at Critics Choice.

Even so, there are 11 categories in which he will compete and one of the points to highlight is that in addition to the already applauded Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan, Stephanie Hsu and Jamie Lee Curtis will also be included among the nominees, the latter two competing between yes in the supporting actress category.

One that did surprise most was the German film "All Quiet on the Western Front" because although its nomination for best international film was more than assured, it ended up receiving another eight nominations in categories such as photography, soundtrack, design of production and the most important: best production of the year, in direct competition with what is considered the highlight of American cinema.

A curious detail is that Hollwood had already made, ninety-three years ago, his own version of this story about the First World War and told from the perspective of a young German fighter.

"All Quiet on the Front", its official title in Spanish, won the Oscar for best film in 1930.

It would be extraordinary if he got it again this time but with the German version of him.


I am also pleased that the Cuban actress Ana de Armas, who developed her career in Spain before arriving in Hollywood, has classified in the group of candidates for leading actress for her crude and committed interpretation of Marillyn Monroe.

Despite so many negative reviews that the movie "Blonde" has received, Ana de Armas's nomination was more than deserved.

Argentina, with the film “Argentina, 1985”, and Mexico, with Pinocchio by Guillermo del Toro and even a short film produced by Alfonso Cuarón, are the Latin countries that stood out the most in the group of nominees.

Left out was Alejandro González Iñárritu, from “Bardo”, a film that only received a mention for its cinematographer, the Iranian Darius Khondji.

Personally, what I most celebrate about these Oscar nominations was the inclusion of my favorite film of the year: "Women Talking", an adaptation of the novel of the same name, inspired by a case that occurred in Bolivia and whose film script was written by its director Sarah Polley.

In addition to the script, "Women Talking" was nominated this morning for the Oscar for best film in 2022.

On Sunday, March 12, the Oscar is delivered and there we will find out if the most nominated today will also be the ones that dominate the awards night.
