It is interesting that of the five films in diswhore, only one of them is eligible for an Academy Award this year. Spider-Man: No Way Home and Zack Snyder’s Justice League were released in 2021, but the last movie is not considered eligible for the 94th Academy Awards, while No Way Home is actually nominated for Best Visual Effects. As for the other three movies, were not released during the eligibility period for this year’s awards. Endgame was released in 2019, Dreamgirls in 2006, and The Matrix in 1999.
The Twitter vote on these popular movie moments is part of a campaign to recognize popular films in a way that the Oscars don’t always seem to do.
In recent years there has been a growing disconnect between movies that make the most money at the box office and are often acclaimed by critics and Films Noted by the Academy for Artistic Achievement. and although these fan votes don’t translate into official Oscarsit’s a chance for movie fans to get a little more love for the Oscars than perhaps they currently do, as well as to get movie fans involved.
“We are thrilled to partner with Twitter to help create an engaged and excited digital audience ahead of this year’s ceremony,” Meryl Johnson, vice president of digital marketing for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, shared in a statement to the outlet.
“Through these activations, social media users around the world now have more opportunities to engage with the show in real time, find a community and be a part of the experience in ways they never could before.”
“Twitter is the place to be during award shows and the Oscars are one of the biggest conversation starters every year,” added Sarah Rosen, director of US news and entertainment partnerships for Twitter. Any moviegoer can see his tweet during the Oscars telecast is pretty epic, and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with the Academy to bring it to life.”
