Oscar Nomination Controversy

The Academy Clears Andrea Riseborough’s Name in Oscar Nomination Controversy

Andrea Riseborough’s Oscar nod is safe at last – the decision is settled!

Controversy swirls as the Academy assesses a surprise Oscar nod! After a week of speculation, they met to determine if Andrea Riseborough’s nod for ‘To Leslie’ followed their guidelines. 

Though the nod stands, the Academy takes issue with certain “social media and outreach campaigning tactics” and promises to address the concerns with those responsible.

In a statement, Bill Kramer, Academy CEO, said, “Given this review, it is apparent that components of the regulations must be clarified to help create a better framework for respectful, inclusive, and unbiased campaigning”.

Andrea Riseborough shines as an alcoholic lottery winner in ‘To Leslie’, earning critical acclaim. But it made a limited box office haul of less than $28,000.
