After an absence of two years, Marvel Studios managed to return by the big door to the world box office and now it is promoting its 2021 productions in the search for Oscar nominations.
Although Marvel Studios accounted for more than 30% of the global box office in 2021, La Casa de las Ideas now aims to win the most important award in the film industry, the Oscar in 2022, and with the support of Disney, Marvel started a campaign to get the corresponding nominations.

According to sites like Comicbook and Inside the Magic, Marvel Studios has launched a campaign at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. So that the three films that the studio released in 2021 (Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Eternals) are installed in the most important nominations of the ceremony.
In the case of Black Widow, Marvel Studios is seeking nominations in categories such as Best Film, Best Director (Cate Shortland), Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Production Design, Costume, Sound, Make-up, Special Effects, and Original Score.
