Disney Pushes Avengers: Endgame In 12 Oscar Categories, But No Best Actor For RDJ

It’s that time of year again. The time where Los Angeles becomes plastered with billboards, pleasing for Academy voters to consider their movies for Oscar consideration. The time where the industry becomes inundated with the more “serious and important” movies. But, of course, that’s never stopped studios from pushing some of their big movies.

Last year, Marvel Studios nominated Black Panther for Best Picture, and while the film went on to win in three other categories, there was no Best Picture. The studio hopes to change that with this year’s big opus, Avengers: Endgame, which godd**n I hope wins something.

Disney has announced that they have submitted the film for 12 categories, which you can check out below.

  • Best Picture: Kevin Feige
  • Best Director: Anthony and Joe Russo
  • Best Adapted Screenplay: Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely
  • Best Cinematography: Trent Opaloch
  • Best Film Editing: Jeffrey Ford, Matthew Schmidt
  • Best Production Design: Charles Wood (Production Designer), Tonja Schurmann (Set Decorator)
  • Best Costume Design: Judianna Makovsky
  • Best Makeup & Hairstyling: John Blake, Janine Thompson, Brian Sipe
  • Best Sound Mixing: Tom Johnson, Juan Peralta, John Pritchett
  • Best Sound Editing: Shannon Mills, Daniel Laurie
  • Best Visual Effects: Dan Deleeuw, Matt Aitken, Russell Earl, Dan Sudick
  • Best Original Score: Alan Silvestri

While I’m happy to see them pushing the film for the big awards, I’m a bit disappointed that Robert Downey Jr. is nowhere to be found here. I’m also disappointed (though not surprised) that Scarlett Johansson didn’t get any recognition, as I feel like she deserves it based on that one office sandwich scene alone.

The big question here is whether or not Avengers: Endgame stands a chance at those big awards. Personally, I think the Oscars are due for something similar to what happened in 2004, when The Return of the King swept the whole show. Avengers: Endgame was that level of success and it certainly deserves it.

What do you think? Does it stand a chance, or are the Oscars too up their own asses to recognize it? Let us know down below!
