On Wednesday, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences released the shortlists for 10 categories for the upcoming Academy Awards. While Matt Reeves’ The batter made the shortlists in three categories – makeup and hair styling, sound and visual effects – it was omitted from one category that most thought the film was a serious contender. Unfortunately for composer Michael Giacchino, The batter did not make the shortlist for Best Music (Original Score).
Instead, 15 other scores have been shortlisted ahead of a formal announcement of the nomination. Those movies include: All Quiet on the Western Front, Avatar: The Way of Water, Babylon, The Banshees of Inisherin, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Devotion, Don’t Worry Darling, Everything Everywhere All at Once, The Fabelmans, Glass Onion, Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio, no, she said, the king of womenand Women talk.
Suffice to say, fans of the picture are not happy with snub. Keep scrolling to see what they say.
everything is rejected everywhere at once for the best visual effects, the batman is rejected for the best score and no, he is rejected for the best sound… can the oscars be serious for once? pic.twitter.com/OWhmW1VRUx
