Glass Onion: A Mystery of the Blades Director Rian Johnson took a moment on Tuesday to celebrate his film’s Academy Award nomination. The Netflix whodunit was even nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay. Viewers from all over the world loved watching Daniel Craig’s Benoit Blanc prowl around that weird mansion. Another big reveal was Janelle Monae’s crafty turn as Andi in the picture. But the most talked about part of Glass onion should be the wild narrative structure that threw many fans for a loop. Yes, the movie really has some tricks up its sleeve and that makes the screenplay award an absolutely understandable choice. Some may have been confused, but those who caught on had a hoot. Check out what the filmmaker had to say below!
Johnson tweeted, “I’m so thankful for the family that made Glass Onion, and for the writers in the Academy. That’s why we’re all getting emotional about this stuff — it’s coming from our friends and colleagues that we’re in the trenches with.”

The official Glass Onion: A Mystery of the Blades account also had some fist pumping: “Let’s all breathe in this moment. Thanks to @TheAcademy for nominating Rian Johnson’s #GlassOnion: A Knives Out Mystery for Best Adapted Screenplay! #Oscars2023”
When can fans expect Knives Out 3?
Knives out 3 will probably take a second. They just started carving out a story. Comicbook.com previously spoke to producer Ram Bergman about trying to crack Glass onion. That took a while, but the prospects for a third Benoit Blanc mystery are very good. Netflix is super happy with the results of the sequel. So, it’s full steam ahead to the next entry.
“The first, [Johnson] had the idea in his head for years, but he didn’t put pen to paper until the end of January and by the end of October we were filming it, which is super fast,” Bergman said in our interview. “This movie he really didn’t have a idea. He just stopped thinking and we were… From the time he actually started writing it, nine months later, a year later, we were filming. So the good thing is that he is very motivated to start doing the next one as soon as possible. But you know, we’ll see how fast he is, but this is going to be a challenge. It’s going to be more challenging. So we’ll see how long it takes.”
