91th Academy Awards, The Oscars

Por Pedro Coelho Medeiros

Sunday we gonna discover the 91th Academy Awards winners, as usual, the ceremony chose the best in every category, but this year your attention was caught by the new movie gender nominated for best movie, Black Panther, the first superhero movie its a contender along with A Star is Born, a remake directed by Bradley Cooper (he’s first directed movie by the way) and starring Lady Gaga in the leading role, she’s also got a nomination for best actress and best music by shallow. Movies like this were label as a blockbuster in the past, but we can’t deny that the Oscars became less popular over the years, new generations don’t share the same interest in movies like Vice or The Favourite.


Black panther and Blackkklasnman is a refresh for the Oscar since the backlash in 2016 when none of the best movie and actor/actress nominated was black, this change how the Academy vote, they have to approach new members, with different nationalities and ages. The reflect was, the Best Movie in the next year goes to moonlight, the movie direct and written by Barry Jenkins, a young black Filmaker in his first movie.

So the nominees at the Oscars its a blend of the best or the most significant for cinema in the last year, like Roma, Directed by Alfonso Cuaron. A Mexican Production in partnership with Netflix, the first movie product by the streaming service who get a nomination for best movie.

By this course corrections, the Oscars its trying to be more significant for young audiences, movie watches and general public who spend they time watching movies like Avengers and not movies tag as “oscars movies” those dramatics actings with a hard to figured screenplay and a anti-climax scenes with no obvious ending leading us to resolve the puzzles.
