Privacy | When we do award-worthy work, give us the same recognition and respect you give to established actors like Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks. But if they didn’t, and no black actors are nominated, this one’s not just on the voters; it’s on those of us who set the table for them.
It’s the same old, same old.
Back again is “The Peanut Butter Falcon”.
Both LaBouef and Johnson also give stellar Oscar-worthy nominations, but it is Zachary Gottsagen, my friend and my co-star from our upcoming movie musical “Best Summer Ever” (which will premiere at this year’s SXSW Film Festival), who is the standout. When you take the temperature of “the town,” it can be easy to forget the AMPAS’s other huge constituencies—New York, the land of writers and theater people; Northern California, home to VFX and sound technicians; London, home of BAFTA, an awards body so Caucasian that this year, Margot Robbie will literally be competing against Margot Robbie for best supporting actress. Here is a real-life actor with a disability (Zachary) actually and incredibly portraying a character with a disability in a major movie, but he is swiped aside for already established, abled actors. For the casting of Zak Gottsagen in the authentic representation of a person with a disability. Directed by Tyler Nilson, Michael Schwartz.

Do Not Sell My Personal Information. If I’m less than bullish about its momentum, that’s partly because Todd Phillips missed a DGA nomination he was expected to get. And two non-disabled actors, Joaquin Phoenix and Leonardo DiCaprio, are currently nominated for Oscars for playing characters with mental disabilities. But we in New York have our considerable blind spots too, and The Irishman may be one of them. The Best Director category is all male and most of the nominated actors are white. It isn’t intimidatingly different. The material on this site may not be reproduced, distributed, transmitted, cached or otherwise used, except with the prior written permission of Condé Nast. EMAIL ME
