The 2018 Oscar nominations are stacked this year. Greta Gerwig scored a directing nod for Lady Bird; both Octavia Spencer and Mary J. Blige are nominated for Best Supporting Actress; Get Out racked up; and for the first time ever, a woman is in the running for Best Cinematography. Even with all this progress, though, there’s still a glaring issue: Wonder Woman didn’t receive a single Oscar nomination. Granted, superhero films aren’t typically considered awards-season fare, but Wonder Woman was groundbreaking. It was one of the highest-grossing films of 2017, critically acclaimed, and featured a nuanced, impressive performance by Gal Gadot. Why the film was snubbed by the Academy — even in the technical categories — is a mystery.
Twitter users made it very clear they’re not happy about Wonder Woman‘s lack of nominations, but Gal isn’t sweating it. The actress told Entertainment Tonight she has no hard feelings about Wonder Woman being left out of the Oscars race. The experience making the film, for her, was the real reward.
“I was very moved and touched by the people who were disappointed that Wonder Woman wasn’t nominated, but we certainly never did the movie for that,” she told ET. “I think that you can’t have it all. We’ve done this movie and it was received in such an amazing, wonderful way, and we want to stay humble and grateful, and we’re going to have another movie, so who knows? Maybe the next one.”
Let’s get the 2020 Oscar campaign for Wonder Woman 2 started right now. Lord knows Gal deserves the gold if she has to battle Ares again.
