The Academy Is Looking Into Whether Andrea Riseborough’s Oscar Campaign Broke Any Rules
It’s officially Oscar time. Only 45 days until the day after the Academy Awards when we’re treated to a million think pieces angrily wondering why the youth won’t willingly watch a 15-hour broadcast. It’s probably because of all that TikTok-ing! In the meantime, we’ll have to get our Oscar fill by reading up on think pieces about the current crop of nominees and who is more deserving of having the coveted gold paperweight. While Ke Huy Quan and Michelle Yeoh should sweep EVERYTHING (yes, even Best Animated Short Film, I don’t care), some nominees are getting the side-eye (cough Andrea Riseborough cough). The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has begun an investigation into Andrea’s unusual grassroots campaign to get that OSCUH. Academy members are probably thrilled that this year’s scandal doesn’t involve a slap!
Ana de Armas And The “Blonde” Crew Visited Marilyn Monroe’s Grave To Ask Permission To Film The Movie
Is Oscar season in September? Because Ana de Armas seems to be really buckling the fuck in and has chosen the ghost narrative pretty hard. She previously spoke about how she felt Marilyn Monroe‘s spirit was with her during the filming of her new film Blonde out in select theatres now and out next week on Netflix. But now Ana says that she also visited Marilyn’s grave to ask for permission. For someone who claims to hate attention, Ana is saying some questionable things.
Taylor Swift Is Eligible For An Oscar For Her Short Film “All Too Well”
While well-known for her music and graciously lending her private jets to her friends in an effort to contribute to carbon emissions, Taylor Swift is also attempting to add Academy Award-winning director to her resume. “But, Vanessa,” you may be saying, “Taylor didn’t direct the epic feature Dear Evan Hansen, how can she be eligible?” How quickly we forget TayTay’s 15-minute saga All Too Well: The Short Film! Apparently, her film about “an effervescent, curious young woman who ends up completely out of her depth” could be in the running for an Oscar. Jake Gyllenhaal better have his social media on lockdown when Taylor wins that award!
Lisa Marie Presley Says She’ll Eat Her Own Foot If Austin Butler Doesn’t Win An Oscar For “Elvis”
Some of us might have watched the first official trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s biopic, Elvis, and thought Elvis was a weird name for a movie that looks like it’s about Grease-era John Travolta. Maybe some of us shady types who think Austin Butler wouldn’t even place 5th runner up in an Elvis Presley look-a-like contest at a Florida state fair should wait until the movie comes out and stop judging a book based on its trailer. Because Lisa Marie Presley, someone who could be considered an expert on all things Elvis, believes that Austin Butler’s performance as The King is so good, he may as well start practicing his Best Actor acceptance speech for the 2023 Academy Awards in the mirror right now.
