Emily Blunt, Timothée Chalamet, “First Man”, John David Washington… Who are the major(s)absent(e)s nominations for the Oscars this year ? 2018 Paramount Pictures. All rights reserved. / Jonny Cournoyer / 2018 FOCUS FEATURES LLC. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED / JACOVIDES-BORDERS-MOREAU / BESTIMAGE Each year, at the announcement of nominations, each one discovering sometimes that its pets are missing from the list of appointed and this year is no exception. Among the Best films, we are surprised not to find My Beautiful Boy, If Beale Street could talk, or The Rider, who conquered the critics. It also deplores the fact that The Ballad of Buster Scruggs and First Reformed do not blow off an appointment for, respectively, best adapted screenplay and best original screenplay. In the category of Best actor, Timothée Chalamet was expected, and it was hoped an appointment for his partner in My Beautiful Boy, Steve Carell, who also offered a nice performance in Welcome to Marwen. It is not the case. If Adam Driver is named, as at the Golden Globes in the category Best actor in a supporting role for Blackkklansman, his partner John David Washington has been forgotten, among the first roles. Finally, we note that no actor of the Black Panther was not mentioned. Among the actresses, one would expect to see Emily Blunt win a nomination because of its two benefits noted in Without a noise or Mary Poppins. Charlize Theron, who had moved in Tully, has also been left behind. Finally, Justin Hurwitz, who had received the Golden Globe for the original music for the First Man, was also excluded from the race for the Oscar.

Other absent of size, Barry Jenkins, appointed to the category of the Best director and oscar winner for the screenplay of Moonlight in 2016, but ignored this year for If Beale Street could talk. On the side of the filmmakers, it is definitely the cold shower. Last year, we could already regret that Greta Gerwig is the only woman director named for Lady Bird. This year, the Academy has done even better and has not retained any woman in the category of Best achievement. However, the named potential were lacking, Lynne Ramsay and its amazing You Were Never Really Here, Debra Granik (Leave No Trace) and Chloé Zhao (The Rider). Marielle Heller for Can You Ever Forgive Me ?, Karyn Kusama for Destroyer, Mimi Leder for A woman of exception or even Josie Rourke to Mary Stuart, would have equally deserved to be considered and to enter the race. Fortunately for women, the category of best actress, is exclusively composed. The honor is except. Allociné the podcast “cinema – the Oscars / Caesar : the Editorial in’ débriefe appointments 2019.
