On Academy Award nominations morning, Twentieth Century Fox had a good day.“The Revenant” led the field with 12 nominations, more than expected, because the movie landed a surprise nod for first-time nominee and Supporting Actor Tom Hardy (a sign of strength) along with every possible technical category.(Arguably, the actors branch rewarded Hardy for his amazing year, including “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Legend”).
This is as dramatic an omission as Ben Affleck’s directing snub for “Argo,” which led to that film’s underdog status and eventual Best Picture win.
The Academy directors are a snobby group, and seem to have given the directors who also write (whether credited or not) the advantage: George Miller (“Fury Road”), Adam Mc Kay (“The Big Short”), Lenny Abrahamson (“Room”), Tom Mc Carthy (“Spotlight”) and last year’s “Birdman” winner Iñárritu (“The Revenant”).
While Fox has turned the narrative of “The Revenant” into a story of an artist’s triumph against formidable odds, they weren’t able to give “The Martian” that same cred.
Only twice in Oscar history has a director won twice in a row: John Ford (“The Grapes of Wrath,” 1941, and “How Green Was My Valley,” 1942) and Joseph L.
Mankiewicz (“A Letter to Three Wives,” 1950, “All About Eve,” 1951). He did pick up picture and director wins for “The Revenant” at the BAFTAs, but was not nominated for SAG Ensemble (Leonardo Di Caprio did win) and did not win the PGA.
“Spotlight” took SAG and “The Big Short” took the PGA.In a year when Best Picture and Director could split, I’m betting Australian auteur Miller wins this one for his long career, from the original “Mad Max” through Best Picture nominee “Babe,” Animated Oscar winner “Happy Feet,” and now the superbly crafted and executed action spectacle “Fury Road.” Does the genre count against him? Is he too much of an outsider, living in Australia? But “Fury Road” has been picking up guild wins (not PGA or DGA), and will take home many tech Oscars.While Fox handled foreign territories, Disney managed the domestic release of “Bridge of Spies” (producer Steven Spielberg’s ninth nomination), with six nominations including Picture, as well as Lucasfilm’s “Star Wars: Force Awakens” (five), Pixar’s “Inside Out,” (two), and Pixar animated short “Sanjay’s Super Team,” for a studio total of fifteen.Warner Bros.’ “Mad Max: Fury Road” scored its expected 10 nominations including Best Picture and Director.(Distributor Warners can also claim Supporting Actor frontrunner Sylvester Stallone for MGM/New Line’s “Creed.”) But the duel of the titans between Miller and fellow septuagenarian Ridley Scott was not to be.Although “The Martian” landed seven nominations, including Best Actor Matt Damon, Best Picture and Adapted Screenplay, there was nothing for Scott, who went on to lose at the DGA to A. Iñárritu, for his second win a row after “Birdman,” the first in the guild’s 80-year-history.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
