Jennifer Lopez was left without an Oscar 2020 nomination
The 92nd Academy Awards will be held on February 9, 2020 at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. Today, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) has unveiled a full list of applicants for awards. Actors John Cho and Issai Ray announced their names. The latter did not hide some disappointment.
Congratulations to these men– Ray said meaningfully after she announced applicants for the main directorial nomination.
This year, only men are claiming the title of best director. Disputes arose over the network because of this, and also because of the minimum number of dark-skinned nominees and other stars who were not included in the list of candidates for the Oscars – 2020.
The tags #OscarsSoWhite and #DirectorsSoMale have united an indignant crowd of Internet users.
The directors Greta Gerwig, who shot the critically acclaimed Little Women and Lulu Wang, the creator of The Farewell, for whose role Aquafina received the Golden Globe, were not included in the Oscar nominees. To date, only one woman in the history of the Oscar has received an award for directorial work – Catherine Bigelow, who shot the film â€œThe Hurt Lockerâ€.
This is sad … Last year we had more female screenwriters and women directors than ever, but we are still facing obvious challenges. However, we are talking about this, and I hope the situation will change,– said actress Florence Pugh, nominated for an Oscar 2020 in the category "Best Supporting Actress" for her role in Amy in "Little Women."
By the way husband Greta Herwig, filmmaker Noah Baumbach, also failed. His new film, Marriage Story, also missed the director's nomination.

Fans Jennifer Lopez hoped to see her among the Oscar nominees this year. Her role in the film "Strippers" (Hustlers) was called a potential contender for the award. The singer and actress was nominated for Golden Globe 2020, but she did not have a chance to compete for an Oscar.
Jay Law wasnâ€™t the only pop star whose fans are now scolding the Oscars. Many expected the soundtrack Beyonce the movie "The Lion King" is worthy of an award. However, the composition Spirit was not among the nominees for the film award.

A month ago, Aquafina made history, becoming a laureate Golden Globe 2020 Award for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical. The fact is that earlier actresses of Asian descent received statuettes only in the nomination "Best Supporting Role". Aquafina managed to win with the main role! Oscar 2020 was not a continuation of success. Actresses and singers were not among the nominees.
