‘The Snow Society’ by Juan Antonio Bayona and the animated film ‘Robot Dreams’, by Pablo Berger, are among the Oscar nominees. The film about the tragedy of the Andes is up for two awards, best international film and best makeup and hairstyling, while Berger’s film is a candidate for the Oscar for best animated film. The 96th annual awards ceremony given by the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will be held on March 10 at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles in a ceremony that will once again be hosted by the presenter and comedian Jimmy Kimmel. Bayona’s film, which recounts the real tragedy of Flight 571 of the Uruguayan Air Force that took place in 1972 and in which 29 people died, is nominated for the award for best international film along with the Japanese film ‘Perfect Days’, from Win Wenders; the co-production between the United States, the United Kingdom and Poland ‘The Zone of Interest’, by Jonathan Glazer; the Italian ‘I Captain’, by Matteo Garrone; and the German ‘Teachers’ Room’, by Ilker Çatak. The French film ‘Anatomy of a Fall’ by Justine Triet is not among the nominees, which left Bayona’s film without an award at the Golden Globes and the Critics Choice Awards and which is among the nominees for best film, since the The French Academy decided that its representative at the Oscars would be ‘Slow Fire’, a culinary film directed by Tran Anh Hung and starring Juliette Binoche and Benoît Magimel, which was left out of the nominees. In addition, Bayona’s film is nominated for the award for best makeup and hairstyling for the work of Ana López-Puigcerver, Belén López-Puigcerver, David Martí, Montse Ribé. In this category ‘The Snow Society’ will compete with ‘Oppenheimer’, ‘Maestro’, ‘Golda’ and ‘Poor Creatures’. ‘The Snow Society’ is already one of the big favorites for the Goya Awards, which will be held on February 10 in Valladolid and where it has 13 nominations. In addition, Bayona’s film is also among the BAFTA nominees, where it is up for the award for best foreign-language film. The film, after its limited release in theaters, arrived on Netflix on January 4, where in just 10 days it became one of the most viewed non-English language films on the platform with more than 51 million views on all over the world and reaching number one in 93 countries. ‘Robot Dreams’, the film directed by Pablo Berger, is also nominated for the Oscar for best animated film. The rivals of the Spanish film, which was crowned the best animated feature film of the year at the European Film Awards, are ‘Spider-Man: Crossing the Multiverse’, ‘Nimona’, ‘El chico la garza’ and ‘Elemental’ . Some nominees among whom in the end are not even Pedro Almodóvar, who passed the initial cut with his short film ‘Strange Way of Life’, a western about two men in love who reunite after years apart starring Ethan Hawke and Pedro Pascal; nor Pepelópe Cruz, who was among the possible candidates for the award for best supporting actress for ‘Ferrari’, a film by Michael Mann in which she plays Laura Garello, the wife and partner of Enzo Ferrari.
