Oscars or Academy Awards & superhero movies have not been close to each other as far as the other genres go. From Suicide Squad‘s awkward ‘Make Up’ win to this year’s dominance by Black Panther, it seems the scenario is changing. Avengers: Endgame could surely be nominated for its visual effects but best film? There’s news coming below about it!
Black Panther won the Best Picture nomination for itself and it seems that carved the way for Marvel & Disney to go big & bold. There’s a news that the makers are trying to early pitch in Avengers: Endgame to the members of Academy Awards. They’re trying to get Avengers: Endgame’s name for Best Picture Oscar at Academy Awards 2020.
According to Erik Davis who is the Managing Editor of one of the biggest movie ticket booking websites Fandango, there was a big screening for Academy members this week. Disney-Marvel screened Avengers: Endgame for them and it seems it has a shot to get its name at least for nominations.
It’s also been assumed that Robert Downey Jr, too, could land up a nomination for the best actor in a supporting role. Now, it would be way too early to judge; but at least a nomination as a goodbye for the superheroes will be celebrated. We also have Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Hollywood coming up, so winning is miles away for the box-office monster as of now.
Avengers: Endgame, directed by Joe Russo and Anthony Russo, features an ensemble cast including Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, and Brie Larson.
