Hollywood hosts the Oscars ceremony this Sunday

The Oscars ceremony, the North American film awards, is scheduled for this Sunday, with Jane Campion’s “The Power of the Dog”, leading the nominations, in an edition in which Hollywood tries to recover pre-pandemic normality.

Jane Campion’s film, a psychological western starring Benedict Cumberbatch and premiered on the Netflix platform, has 12 nominations and arrives at the Oscars with a trail of awards, namely the Golden Globes, BAFTAs (United Kingdom), the directors’ association and from various critics associations in the United States.

However, this unanimity was broken last week with the producer association awarding the top prize to “CODA – No Ritmo do Coração”, by Siân Heder for the Apple TV platform, which tells the story of a deaf family in which Teenage Ruby is the only member who can hear.

Both are nominated for an Oscar for Best Picture, along with “Belfast”, “Don’t Look Up”, “Drive My Car”, “King Richard: Beyond the Game”, “Dune”, “Licorice Pizza”, ” West Side Story” and “Nightmare Alley – Alley of Lost Souls”.

Regarding “Nightmare Alley”, by Guillermo del Toro, Portuguese-Canadian designer Luís Sequeira is nominated for the Oscar for Best Wardrobe.

For the Oscar for Best Achievement are Jane Campion, Kenneth Branagh, Paul Thomas Anderson, Ryusuke Hamaguchi and Steven Spielberg.
