The list of films nominated for the 95th Academy Awards has a deficiency that is sadly already very common in regards to this great award: the lack of recognition for horror movies. None of the feature films candidates for the Oscar 2023 belongs to that genre, and from the perspective of acclaimed actress mia gothit is time for these prestigious awards to broaden their film scene.
Goth comes from acting in X and its prequel Pearltwo tapes slasher directed by Ti West and released in 2022, only six months apart. Both were very well received by the public and critics, being also sheltered by various film festivals. The anger, particularly with Pearl, was due in part to Goth’s superb performance, and countless fans saw the British comedian as a strong contender for the golden statuette awarded by the Hollywood Academy. But such a nomination ultimately did not happen.
In a recent interview with Jake Hamilton (via), that omission came up, and the twenty-something actress responded to why, in her opinion, it has been difficult for horror movies to receive fair recognition at the Oscar ceremony.
«I think it’s very political and it’s not based entirely on the quality of a project itself.. I think there’s a lot going on there. ‘lots of cooks in the kitchen’ when it comes to nominations and categories being recognized“He commented on it. I don’t know, maybe I shouldn’t say that either, but I think it’s true. I think a lot of people know it and I don’t know why [sigue sucediendo]».

This year, Nope! from director Jordan Peele was perhaps the horror film most likely to earn a nomination. However, this lurid hybridization with the neo-western and science fiction ended with zero applications.
«I believe that a change is necessary, that a real change should take placeMia Goth added on the Oscar thing. «Yes [la Academia] would like to engage with a wider audience, I think it would be really beneficial«.
Most recently, Goth starred in infinity pool by director Brandon Cronenberg, opposite Alexander Skarsgård. The horror and science fiction film had its world premiere on January 21 as part of the 2023 Sundance Film Festival. This week, it will have a limited release in commercial theaters in the US.
