The Sunday Social, 2/28: Will You Be Looking at The Oscars?Written by way of Gaya On February 28, 2016Hi readers, and Glad Sunday!
Today sees the 88th Academy Awards Ritegoing down in Los Angeles. It is seemed as the climax of the once a yearmovie awards season, as smartly as the perfect honour bestowed upon someoneinterested in the film industry.
And presenting at tonights ceremony may be none as hostile to Korean actor Lee Byung-hun. It isn't yet showed for which category Lee will be presenting an award, or with whom, yet his agency BH Entertainment is certain that the G.I. Joe 2 and Red 2 actor will be on degree at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
Unfortunately, we will be lacking out on every other Korean performer gracing the stage. Soprano Sumi Jo sang Undeniable Song #3 in Youth, which has earned composer David Lang a TopUsual Song nomination. This category is one this isfrequently shafted by the Academy, as Toy Tale 3 composer Randy Newman pointed out in 2011.
The Most efficient Original Song category doesnt at all times have the total five nominations, but it took place this year. However, most effective3 of the songs will be carried outall through the ceremony; principallybecause of the prime profile performers connected to them (Lady Gaga, Sam Smith and The Weeknd). Straightforward Song #3 isnt one of them; and nor is Manta Ray, from the documentary Racing Extinction. It was co-written and co-performed by transgendered musician Anhoni, who previous this week wrote about how she used to benow not invited to accomplish at the ceremony.
Though there is diversity a few of the invited performers for Most efficient Original Song, the omission of an Asian performer and the primary transgendered performer to ever be nominated for an Oscar has only added to the existing tension over the Academy Awards loss of diversity.
Will you be watching this years ceremony, readers? Do you've any Oscars picks, or private favourites from film (Hollywood or otherwise) this beyond year? Percentage them in the comments below!
And should you were wondering, South Korea submitted Yoo Ah-in-starrer The Throne as its representative for Most competitive Foreign Film. The film didnt make it to the general nomination stage.
