The DC movie was a critical success!
Birds of Prey, a DC film released a year ago, has a good chance of making the Oscar nominee list. On Tuesday (9), the Academy of Cinema Arts and Sciences announced its shortlist for nine award categories.
The list confirmed that Birds of Prey was shortlisted to compete for seats in two Oscar categories, these are the best makeup and hairstyle and the best visual effects.
While that doesn’t necessarily mean the film will be officially nominated in either category, the inclusion of Birds of Prey in both lists shows that the production is receiving some support from the film industry.
The Shortlisted Oscars represent this small group of films voted on by the Academy, but not yet on the final list of nominees for the award. Each year the Academy publishes this list containing 10 films of Best Short Film, Best Makeup & Hairstyle, Best Animated Short, Best Live Action Short, and Best Visual Effects. Of these 10 films, 5 will be chosen and officially nominated in each of these categories.
Therefore, in the category Best makeup and hair have been shortlisted:
Birds of Prey Emma Mank Once Upon a Dream The supreme voice of Pinocchio Blues The Glorias One Night in Miami … Small Traces A Christmas Invention
In the category of best visual effects, the shortlisted films were:
Birds of Prey Bloodshot Monstrous Problems Mank The Midnight Sky Welcome to Chechnya Mulan Soul Tenet The Great Ivan
Aves de Rapina, produced and starring Margot Robbie, has been very well received by critics, who praised the work both for its feminist approach to superheroes and for its creative style and language.
So which movies do you think are coming to the Oscars? Nominations will be announced on March 15.
