Hollywood is holding its breath ahead of the race for the Oscars

Hollywood is holding its breath ahead of the race for the Oscars

Smith and Jessica Sostaine?

Among the cast, this year’s favorite remaining star, Will Smith, starred in the film “King Richard” for playing the father of tennis champions Serena and Venus Williams.

One of the co-stars of “CODA”, Troy Kotzur, is also vying for the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. The deaf actor, who plays a loving but sometimes helpless father to a deaf teenager, has been a huge hit at various film festivals this season.

But the competition among the actresses is high.

According to Scott Feinberg, this year “all five candidates have a real chance of winning”, although Jessica Chastine, who plays TV presenter on “The Eyes of Tommy Fay”, appears to be the “favorite”.

Clayton Davis noted that while this may seem like a risky option, Penelope Cruz’s fortunes were not weak, and she may be surprised at his performance in Pedro Almodov’s “Matrix Parallax”.

Haryana Dubois is expected to win the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the remake of Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story, but experts say she has trouble beating Jane Campion in the race for Best Director.

Of the numerous awards, “Dawn” is expected to be the biggest winner on Sunday night, thanks to its nominations in a number of technical categories, including photography, sound and special effects.

“Tick Tock Generation”

After two years of health restrictions, the Oscars are returning to their traditional place at the Dolby Theater on the Hollywood Avenue of Fame. The organizers of the event and the channel “ABC”, hope that the occasion will restore its audience after a significant decline in the number of viewers in recent years.

The 2021 edition did not attract more than ten million viewers, 56% less than the previous year, which recorded the lowest number of viewers.

To attract followers, this year the organizers introduced the “Fan Award”, which is given to followers who vote on social networks.

Clayton Davis said the Oscars were an initiative “in an effort to attract new audiences from the Dictok generation.”

Organizers hope to captivate audiences with the performance of pop queen and singer Billy Elish at the Oscars night where two songs competed, “King Richard” and “No Time to Die” (the latest James Bond film). .

But if the number of spectators is the same “or even lower, they will face a much bigger problem.”
