Disney Is Making an Oscar Push for Marvel’s ETERNALS

There were aspects of Marvel’s Eternals that I really liked and then there were a lot of things about it that I didn’t like. This is one of Marvel’s lowest-rated movies among fans, but that’s not gonna stop Disney from building an Academy Awards campaign around it to push it for some Oscar nominations including Best Picture and Best Director for Cloe Zhao, whose Nomadland won Best Picture last year.

I don’t think Eternals is Oscar-worthy for a lot of these nominations. But it could fit in with some of the technical categories including Cinematography, Special Effects, Editing, Sound, Costume Designs, and stuff like that.

You can see the full list of nominations Disney is asking the Academy to consider for this year’s awards below. Check them out and let us know what you think! What awards do you think that film should be nominated for?
