She went on to describe the photos released showing the unforgettable moment when she found out she was nominated for a supporting role in the film Everything everywhere at once. “The first shows the moment when I heard my name, and then the excitement of hearing my friend Stephanie’s name (Stephanie Hsu, nominated for Best Actress, op. a.) and all the other nominations, and then the best thing, a loving hug from my husband . No filters, no fakes. Just a genuine moment of happiness captured by my friend.” She added that the movie Everything everywhere at once received as many as 11 nominations.
Criticism of Oscar nominations: The Academy does not value women’s voices
Everything Everywhere at Once is the action comedy that received the most nominations this year. It is followed by two black comedies with nine nominations The soul of a child and drama Nothing new in the Westand the biographical film boasts one less nomination Elvis. After the announcement of the films competing for this year’s golden statuette, criticism arose, as there is not a single female director in the category for best director.
