Oscar 2022: Oscar nominations: The frustration of three and a half


Favorite “dog power”: Well! But this year’s Oscar nominations aren’t gritty. After all, there are two Germans among the candidates.

There are basically three disappointments to report upon nominations for Oscars 2022 is known, which will be awarded on March 27 in Hollywood.

1. “I’m Your Skin” Without an Oscar

The German director with her wonderful film “I Am Your Skin” is not in the last round. Consolation: two other Germans are among the nominees for the sci-fi scene “Dunes” – for the twelfth time, Hans Zimmer in film music, as well as Gerd Nesfer for special effects (both already have a golden boy at home, Zimmer for “The Lion King” and we think) for “Blade Runner 2049”).

2. A little courage, hardly any surprises

In general, the nominations are not gritty and are always very prominent. For example, with the main cast: Javier Bardem (“Being the Ricardos”), Benedict Cumberbatch (“The Power of the Dog”), Will Smith (“King Richard”), Denzel Washington (“The Tragedy of Macbeth”). ‘) – Here’s just Andrew Garfield from the musical “Tick, Tick…Boom!”. The movie, on the other hand, was missing out on the top movies — but one musical was nominated: Steven Spielberg’s “West Side Story,” which is also in the director’s department. There, on the other hand, is Jane Campion for “The Power of the Dog” more than a Cota woman – her tape is the most nominated with twelve.

But beside her and Spielberg, Kenneth Branagh (“Belfast”) and Paul Thomas Anderson (“Licorice Pizza”), Ryosuke Hamaguchi is the only one who was completely unexpected in Murakami’s adaptation of “Drive My Car.” As the trend continues, look at “Roma” and “Parasite”, foreign-language film favorites also have an impact on the major categories. And the main actresses: they’re all outstanding! Jessica Chastain (“The Eyes of Tamy Faye”), Olivia Colman (“The Lost Daughter”), Nicole Kidman (“Being the Ricardos”), and Kirsten Stewart (“Spencer”), as well as Penélope Cruz in Almodovar’s Parallel Mothers. then to:

3. Lack of diversity among candidates

What has not been discussed about diversity! What’s crazy about 2022 isn’t just that none of the above categories are white (to support the actresses, it’s Aunjanue Ellis from “King Richard” and Ariana DeBose from “West Side Story,” while there’s a slack for men). What’s insane is that the dark-skinned candidates appear as lead actors in stunning sets: Denzel Washington gives (cultural appropriation? No white confrontation!) Shakespeare’s Macbeth; The story of the tennis champions of the Williams sisters is told with Will Smith through their father, the man by the name of “King Richard”. At least there’s real solace here: the gay-dream couple from “The Power of the Dog” with Benedict Cumberbatch is also complemented by nominee Kodi Smit-McPhee in the supporting role.

Ach ja, und 4.: Eine einzige Nominierung für „Don’t Look Up” in den Hauptkategorien, nämlich im breiten Zehnerfeld “Bester Film” (darunter auch bislang ungenanntes wie „CODA” und „Nightmare Alchley ist” – ein fa a little.
