(CNN Spanish) – Just a few days after assembly the winners of the 23 aggressive classes of the Oscar award, I proceed to learn on social networks the declarations of mea culpa amongst those that, regardless of the ceremony being postponed for 2 months, haven’t but caught up with the nominees for Finest Image.
For them and for individuals who want a reminder, I’ve created a assessment on these eight productions that aspire to the major award of the evening.
I additionally wished to anticipate and share the historical moments that we could be recording this Sunday, when the contents of the envelopes are revealed.
I begin with the massive favourite of the evening: “Nomadland”, which reaches the Oscar with six nominations. This movie, directed by Chlóe Zhao, has already made historical past by making its director the girl with the highest variety of nominations in the similar evening, being the author, editor, producer and director of the movie.
If Zhao wins these 4 statuettes, she could be the girl who has received the most awards in the similar edition and, as if that weren’t sufficient, the second girl to obtain an Oscar for Finest Course in the total historical past of the Academy of Movement Image Arts and Sciences. The primary was Kathryn Bigelow, in 2010, however Zhao, born in China, would even be the first representing minorities.
In the case of the movie “Judas and the Black Messiah”, historical past has additionally marked it, as it’s the first time that a manufacturing crew behind a candidate for Finest Image is made up fully of black individuals: Shaka King, Charles D. King, and Ryan Coogler. All three had been on the cowl of the weekly journal “The Hollywood Reporter” a month in the past.
The crew with Asian roots of the movie “Minari” additionally had its personal cowl in the similar medium, however though its director, its producer and the protagonist (Steven Yeun) are at the moment highlighted by their race or ethnicity, this group prefers to not be typecast in tales that are solely innate to their tradition.
Whereas others want that their expertise reasonably than their roots converse for them, this yr many highlighted the reality that amongst the 20 artists featured in the performing classes, 9 are of a race apart from white.
This can be a panorama that the Hollywood group had longed for for years, when it demanded higher illustration and equality inside the business. There may be then the chance that on Sunday, in every of those 4 performing classes, the winners can be representatives of minorities. That will be an important historic consequence on Oscar evening.
