It's crystal clear that Wonder Woman 1984 failed to hit the mark with a lot of its audiences and it just sucks how things turned out the way they are because in my view, the Gal Gadot film was overall a good watch and by no means is it a bad sequel.
However, the underwhelming response for the film, mostly on the critical side of things isn't going to discourage Warner Bros. Pictures from convincing fans that the film is a theatrical masterpiece. In fact, WB has launched a campaign for the 93rd edition of the Oscars hoping to score a few nods at the prestigious award-giving body.
WB's award site has posted a For Your Consideration campaign in several Academy Award categories including Best Picture, Best Director (Patty Jenkins), Best Actress (Gal Gadot), Best Supporting Actor (Pedro Pascal and Chris Pine), and Best Supporting Actress (Kristen Wiig, Robin Wright, and Connie Nielsen) among others.
Sure, it's still up for debate whether WW1984 deserves to be considered for the 2021 Oscars or not but by the looks of it, the folks over at Warner Bros. are 100% positive that the film is in fact worthy of such an accolade. Here's to hoping it gets in but I'm wondering how fans would react should the sequel make it to the Oscars. But hey, if a film like Black Panther can get an Oscars nod, so can Wonder Woman 1984, right?
WW1984 is available in select cinemas and on HBO Max.
