After months of speculation, it looks like Warner Bros. has kicked off its Oscar campaign for Wonder Woman.
Warner Bros. recently debuted their 'For Your Consideration' page, which features four different films the company is submitting for Oscar nominations. Wonder Woman is one of the four films on their site so far, with possible consideration in fifteen different categories.
The film is up for consideration in the coveted Best Picture category, which would give producers Charles Roven, Richard Suckle, and Zack and Deborah Snyder a chance at a trophy. The film is also being submitted for Best Adapted Screenplay, while Patty Jenkins is being submitted for Best Director.
Wonder Woman is submitting nine of its cast members in the Academy Awards' various acting categories. Gal Gadot (Diana Prince/Wonder Woman) is up for consideration for Best Actress, while Connie Nielsen (Hippolyta), Robin Wright (Antiope) and Elena Anaya (Doctor Poison) are being submitted for Best Supporting Actress. In Best Supporting Actor, Wonder Woman is submitting Chris Pine (Steve Trevor), David Thewlis (Ares), Danny Huston (General Ludendorff), and Ewen Bremner (Charlie).
The film is also being submitted in a myriad of technical categories: Best Cinematography, Best Production Design, Best Film Editing, Best Costume Design, Best Visual Effects, Best Sound Mixing, Best Sound Editing, Best Original Score, and Best Makeup and Hairstyling. The last of those deserves an extra notation, as fellow DC Extended Universe film Suicide Squad famously took home that award last year.
With this overwhelming number of considerations, it's clear that Warner Bros. has faith in Wonder Woman's awards success. But as it turns out, that potential wasn't really in the mind of the film's cast and crew.
"When you’re making a movie it’s completely all consuming; there are many things you don’t have time to think about." Jenkins explained last month. "I certainly wasn’t thinking about the Oscars. It’s just not something you consider when you make these kinds of movies. I did the best that I could, but you kind of assume you’re not going to be considered for that kind of thing... But now, hearing that, I’m so flattered and stunned and super honoured to be in the awards conversation."
Fans will have to wait until January 23rd, 2018 to see which Academy Award nominations Wonder Woman ends up scoring. If Wonder Woman does make comic book movie history at the Oscars, it will be on March 4th, 2018.
Wonder Woman is now available on Blu-Ray, DVD, and digital.
