93rd Oscars, Academy Awards, Nominations Announements

It will certainly be a very special 2021 Oscars ceremony that will take place on April 25, 2021 at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. The 2021 Oscar nominations have been announced, with actress and producer Priyanka Chopra and her musician husband Nick Jonas tasked with unveiling all the nominations.

Laura Pausini nominated for the 2021 Oscars for the best song: the moved thanks of the singer.After winning the Golden Globe for Best Song with “Io Sì (Seen)”, Laura Pausini was nominated for an Oscar and wanted to thank the Academy for her honor. 2021 Oscar Nominations: Nominations for the 93rd Academy Awards have been announced, which will be delivered during the Award Ceremony to be held on April 25th (In Italy it will be the night between Sunday 25th and Monday 26th)  Mank is on the run, with ten nominations.Not far away, a big group composed of the usual suspects (who are the Nomadlad Golden Lion, The Chicago 7 trial, The Father and the Sound of Metal that you find streaming on Prime Video), to which is added a relative new entry as Minari, which the Golden Globes considered only as a “foreign” film). All six nominations. Just behind, A Promising Woman and Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.

This is the situation of the 2021 Oscar race, of which not particularly surprising nominations have just been announced (after all, the year was what it was) and above all decidedly significant from a socio-political point of view, if by politics we mean the inclusive issues at the top of the US industry debate. The impression is that the members of the Academy have been careful to represent, in the candidacies, women, African Americans and Asians (Riz Ahmed, although British, in our opinion he was considered to be in Pakistan). Italy, excluded from the race for the award for the best international film (nothing to do for Notturno di Rosi), doubles Laura Pausini’s candidacy for the Globes for the song of the film with Sophia Loren La vita front a se, and gets more two thanks to Matteo Garrone’s Pinocchio, which competes in the best makeup and hairstyles section and in the best costumes section. Congratulations to the candidates Mark Coulier, Dalia Colli and Francesco Pegoraro, and to Massimo Cantini Parrini. Unique, real surprises: the nomination for best director for Another Round by Thomas Vinterberg, and the Eurovision Song Contest – The Story of Fire Saga for the best original song (“Husavik”).

Italian cinema will be present at the 2021 Oscars, thanks to the nomination for the best song Io Sì (soundtrack of La vita front a sé) by Laura Pausini, fresh winner of the Golden Globe and with Pinocchio by Matteo Garrone, nominated for an Oscar for opera costumes by Massimo Cantini Parrini and the make-up created by Mark Coulier, Dalia Colli and Francesco Pegoretti. Nothing to do for Francesco Rosi’s Notturno, which is not nominated in the documentary category.

For the 2021 Oscars, the members of the Academy Awards have changed the rules to accommodate productions that have been postponed during the months of closure of the sets and theaters, also for this reason the ceremony has been postponed to April. For the first time, two female directors have been nominated for an Oscar 2021: Chloe Zhao for Nomadland and Emerald Fennell for Promising Young Woman.  Courtsey ©A.M.P.A.S.
