‘Mank’ earns ten Oscar nominations

‘Mank’ initially starts as a favorite with 10 nominations at the Oscars, which will be held next Sunday, April 25 in Los Angeles. David Fincher’s film produced by Netflix, which narrates the creation process of ‘Citizen Kane’ focusing on the figure of its screenwriter Herman Mankiewicz, is the one that accumulates the most nominations in a ceremony that was postponed due to the pandemic and that was scheduled for original on February 28. The show will be held at the Dolby Theater, its usual venue, and at Union Station, the central station of Los Angeles and a novelty on this occasion.

The author of ‘Seven’ is up for best director, although curiously not for best script: the film’s script was originally written by the director’s father. ‘Mank’ will compete for the best film statuette with seven other titles: ‘The Father’, ‘Judas and the Black Messiah’, ‘Minari’, ‘Nomadland’, ‘A Promising Young Woman’, ‘Sound of Metal’ and ‘The Trial of the Chicago 7’.

The independent film that was most popular in this edition, ‘Nomadland’ wins six nominations in important sections, so it could ruin ‘Mank’s night, which monopolizes many technical nominations. Winner of the Golden Lion in Venice and the Golden Globe for best drama, as well as the awards from the American critics associations, ‘Nomadland’ denounces job insecurity in the United States through mature workers who are forced to travel the country and live in caravans accepting low-paying jobs like those at Amazon. Chloé Zhao’s film premieres in Spanish cinemas on March 26 and will arrive on Disney Plus on April 30.

‘Mank’ earns ten Oscar nominations

Pedro Almodóvar has not achieved what would have been his fifth Oscar nomination for the short film ‘The Human Voice’. Spain will be represented at the ceremony by ‘El agent mole’, a Spanish-Chilean co-production directed by Chilean Maite Alberdi that competes in the best documentary category. The film, which opens this Friday in Spanish cinemas, follows an endearing old man hired as a spy who infiltrates a residence to check the treatment of one of the inmates. Humor and tenderness go hand in hand in a ‘sui generis’ documentary, which has been going strong since it passed through Sundace and San Sebastián.

They will compete for the best actress award Viola Davis for ‘The mother of blues’, Second Day for ‘The United States vs. Billie Holliday’, Vanessa Kirby for ‘Fragments of a Woman’, Frances McDormand by ‘Nomadland’ and Carey Mulligan for ‘A Promising Young Woman’. They compete for best leading actor Rice Ahmed (‘Sound of Metal’), Chadwick Boseman posthumously for ‘The Mother of the Blues’, Anthony Hopkins (‘The father’), Gary Oldman (‘Mank’) y Steven Yeun (‘Minari. History of my family’).

The review of the nominated performers shows that the Hollywood Academy has opted for diversity in nominations that were read from London by actors Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas. We find six African-American performers, the first actor of Pakistani and Muslim origin nominated for an Oscar (Riz Ahmed, extraordinary as a drummer who goes deaf in ‘Sound of Metal’) and the first South Korean actress, Youn Yhu-jung, who aspires to the award . After winning the Golden Globe posthumously, Chadwick Boseman, who died last August at the age of 43, has every chance to take the Oscar from Anthony Hopkins thanks to his work in ‘The mother of blues’. Frances McDormand She will go calmly knowing that the statuette is hers for playing in ‘Nomadland’ a survivor who, after the closure of a mining operation that ruins an entire town in Nevada, packs her bags and aboard her truck embarks on a journey that will It leaves the beaten path and the archetypes of consumer society.

For the first time in Oscar history, Two directors are up for the statuette: Chloé Zhao for ‘Nomadland’ and Emerald Fennell for ‘A Promising Young Woman’. His rivals are the Danish Thomas Vinterberg (‘Another Round’), David Fincher (‘Mank’) and Lee Isaac Chung (‘Minari. My Family Story’). One of the films of the year is, without a doubt, ‘The Trial of the Chicago 7’, which has won six nominations, including best film. Another Netflix production (the platform has accumulated 35 nominations) that vindicates the fight for social rights and freedom of expression based on historical events and whose author, Aaron Sorkin, has not received the nomination for best director.

Finally, as a curiosity, it should be noted that, in addition to the Spanish talent present in ‘The Mole Agent’, two other compatriots are competing for an Oscar: Santiago Colomo Martínez, special effects technician in the Disney film ‘The Magnificent Ivan’, and Sergio Lopez Rivera in the category of best makeup and hairdressing for ‘The mother of blues’.
