The list of nominations for the 2016 Oscar Awards has been released, and as expected, Star Wars picked up a few. If you listened to last week’s podcast, we thought it a foregone conclusion that it would get the noms that it did:
- Best original score
- Best visual effects
- Best film editing
- Best sound mixing
- Best sound editing
Ok, maybe we didn’t get the film editing, but the rest were certainly mentioned during the show. I think. You can read the entire list here.
With the criticism that the film is too similar to A New Hope, it was never going to win Best Screenplay or Best Picture. It’s hard enough for movies of this genre to get nominations for the bigger awards, but I feel like Daisy Ridley could have easily been nominated for some kind of acting award. She was that good.
Was The Force Awakens robbed in any category, big or small? Any predictions on how many, if any, it will win?
