Only 6 horror films ever nominated for Best Picture Oscar
"Get Out" Director Jordan Peele writes a little bit of Oscar history with his debut as Writer Directors in the horror genre.
Horror is not the favorite film genre of the Oscar jury. Horror movies are usually nominated only for technical categories such as camera and visual effects, but very rarely for the main categories "Best Film", "Best Director" or "Best Screenplay". In the history of the Oscars, there are only six horror films ever nominated for Best Picture. And only one of them won the Oscar for Best Picture.
This time, director Jordan Peele has made it again with his atypical horror thriller "Get Out" and thus writes a little history for the horror genre at the Academy Awards.
These are the only six horror films ever nominated for Best Picture Oscar:
With four nominations in the major categories Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay "and" Best Actor "has" Get Out "for the horror genre already achieved a lot. That may well be because "Get Out" is an atypical horror movie. But the film comes from Blumhouse Productions - a studio that is best known for its horror movies.
A little Oscar history also writes "Get Out" director and scriptwriter Jordan Peele because he's just the third writer-director to make his directorial debut in all three key categories (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay). was nominated. Only Warren Beatty succeeded with(1978) and James L. Brooks with (1983) - in both cases, however, in the category "Best Adapted Screenplay". In addition, Peele is only the fifth African-American director, who receives a nomination in the category "Best Director".
"Black Swan" is not a classic horror movie, but with disturbing images of bloody injuries and broken bones as well as a high degree of paranoia, it goes beyond the limits of a simple thriller. The psychological thriller went blank in the category "Best Film". But Natalie Portman received the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role of Nina.
's The Sixth Sense was nominated in six categories, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay. But the ghost movie with the surprising twist went blank in all categories.
The horror thriller around the cannibal Hannibal Lecter and the FBI agent Clarice Starling is the only horror film ever to receive the Oscar in the Best Picture category. "The Silence of the Lambs" won awards at the Academy Awards in 1992 in all major Oscar categories: Best Picture, Best Actor (Anthony Hopkins), Best Actress (Jodie Foster), Best Director (Jonathan Demme) and Best Adapted Screenplay (Ted Tally).
In 1976, Steven Spielberg was so excited about rocking the Academy Awards that he even filmed his reaction to the Oscar jury's nomination in his office. The then just 29-year-old director expected eleven Oscar nominations. But a bitter disappointment came out. "The White Shark" was ONLY nominated in four categories: Best Film, Best Film Music, Best Cut and Best Sound. Spielberg was completely outraged that he was not nominated for Best Director, Best Screenplay, or even Special Effects. Finally, The White Hai won three of the four nominations. Only the Oscar in the category "Best Film" went to.
The horror film classic has been nominated for a remarkable ten Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Screenplay. Won the most commercially successful film of 1973 but then only two Oscars: Best Adapted screenplay and Best Sound.
Samsung's fix for Galaxy S10 fingerprint scanning will roll out soon .
Samsung is acting on its promise to fix its fingerprint reader security flaw. The tech firm is alerting Galaxy S10, S10+, Note 10 and Note 10+ owners that it'll send a notification for the patch "within 24 hours" (clearly less time than that as you read this) for anyone who has registered a fingerprint on their device. You'll have a fix well before the weekend. Samsung is also asking anyone who has used the phone with a screen protector to delete and re-register their prints without the protector installed, since it might include "incorrect" info.If you do get the update, you can't escape it -- the notice will stay until you install the fix.
