The Best Actress Oscar nomination for Andrea Riseborough won’t be withdrawn, according to a statement from the Academy. The Academy had a meeting to discuss if the grassroots effort had broken any of its regulations.
Many people were surprised by actor Andrea Riseborough’s Oscar nomination for Best Actress in a Leading Role as she rocketed into the top five without receiving any precursor nods for her performance in the film To Leslie. Since then, the Academy has investigated the improbable grassroots campaign to see if Andrea’s candidature broke any of the guidelines established by the organisation. The Academy has now declared that despite the criticism, Andrea’s candidature will stand.
Andrea Riseborough’s Oscar nomination
After various concerns were made about the film’s promotional tactics, which resulted in her unexpected nomination, the Academy had previously said last week that it would evaluate the nomination. As part of the grassroots campaign, which featured actors including Charlize Theron, Gwyneth Paltrow, Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Edward Norton, and Minnie Driver, screenings of the movie were held by various Academy members. In the last days of the vote, actors including Demi Moore, Kate Winslet, Amy Adams, Jane Fonda, Naomi Watts, and Kate Winslet all contributed to raising awareness of Andrea’s performance.
The Academy has now declared that Andrea’s Best Actress nomination will stand following the review. The Academy started a probe into the movie’s campaigning strategies in response to worries that surfaced last week over the TO LESLIE awards campaign, According to AMPAS CEO Bill Kramer in an official statement made by The Academy. The Academy has found that the alleged action does not warrant the revocation of the film’s candidature. But we did come across social media and outreach campaigning strategies that raised questions. Direct discussions about these strategies are taking place with the accountable parties.
These are the essential ideals of the Academy, and the goal of the campaign regulations is to maintain a just and moral awards process. After reviewing the rules, it is clear that some of them need to be defined to improve the framework for impartial, respectful advocacy. These adjustments will be made following this awards cycle, and our members will be informed of them. The Academy aspires to foster a setting in which votes are purely determined by the creative and technical merits of the films and accomplishments that are eligible.
Cate Blanchett in Tar, Ana de Armas in Blonde, Andrea Riseborough in Leslie, Michelle Williams in The Fabelmans, and Michelle Yeoh in Everything Everywhere All At Once are the five candidates for Best Actress in a Leading Role. On March 13, the Academy Awards will be presented.
