Gal Gadot reacts to Wonder Woman Oscars snub

Adjust Comment Print

39 percent of the one thousand participants in Fandango's survey say that Wonder Woman was the biggest snub of the Oscars and according to Fandango managing editor Erik Davis, "Moviegoers (were) shocked that Wonder Woman was unable to land a single Oscar nomination considering its huge box office success and positive impact on pop culture". 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.

Gal Gadot continues to display the humility of a superhero. Why the film was snubbed by the Academy-even in the technical categories-is a mystery.

The internet was none too pleased with the lack of Wonder Woman, as it is wont to do, but Gal Gadot is making movies for the fans, not the critics.

Sadly, it wasn't in the cards, and when the Academy announced their nominations for the 2018 Oscars, Wonder Woman was nowhere to be found.

PSG were without their injured Brazilian star Neymar, who scored a quadruple in Wednesday's 8-0 demolition of Dijon. Dani Alves , who fed Kurzawa's for his eye-catching goal, was sent off for a foul on a Lyon player.

But while this year's out, the franchise may soon have another chance at Oscars glory.

"I think that you can't have it all", Gadot added at the Revlon event in NY. Not only was the Patty Jenkins directed film the best of the troubled DC Extended Universe, but Wonder Woman was just a good film, period. But we certainly never did the movie for that. Gadot told ET. "Maybe the next one!"

Gal thinks it is amusing how her daughter had already got a listing on IMDb, even before she was born, as Gal played Wonder Woman with the little one in her tummy.

Wonder Woman was the third-biggest domestic movie of 2017 and a critical darling.
