Mia Goth, a talented young actor, recently expressed her dissatisfaction with the Oscars’ disregard for the horror genre for her roles in critically acclaimed films.
Goth, who starred in the critically acclaimed horror movie “Pearl,” thinks that the Academy’s decision to ignore the horror subgenre is motivated by politics. “It’s very political,” During the course of the interview, she stated. “Horror films are often seen as low-brow or cheap entertainment, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. They require just as much skill and talent to make as any other genre.”
The comments made by Goth come after it was announced that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences did not nominate any horror films for any of the major awards, including Best Picture and Best Director. This has resulted in criticism from fans as well as industry professionals, who argue that the horror genre deserves recognition just as much as any other type does.
Numerous horror movies, including “Pearl,” have been lauded by critics for their groundbreaking narratives and outstanding performances. These films have also received high marks for their inventive use of gore. However, in spite of all of this, the Academy continues to ignore the category.
Mia Goth is not the only person who has voiced their displeasure with the treatment of the horror genre. Other professionals in the field have also said that they don’t agree with what the Academy decided. “Horror films are a vital part of the film industry,” noted film critic Richard Roeper was quoted as saying. “They push the boundaries of what is possible in filmmaking and often offer a unique perspective on the world. It’s a shame that the Academy continues to ignore them.”
The Academy Awards, or more colloquially referred to as “the Oscars,” is widely regarded as one of the most prestigious award ceremonies in the motion picture industry. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presents awards in a number of different categories on an annual basis to recognize the best films and performances. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has, on the other hand, a pattern of routinely ignoring the horror genre. For years, the Academy Awards have ignored films and performances in the horror genre, despite the fact that both have received widespread praise from critics.
It is abundantly clear that there is a growing sense of exasperation regarding the Academy’s failure to recognize the horror genre as a distinct subgenre. Fans and professionals in the industry are united in their demand for a shift, and it is past time for the Academy to begin to take the horror genre seriously. To paraphrase what Goth said in such an eloquent manner,”Horror films are just as deserving of recognition as any other genre, and it’s time for the Academy to start acknowledging that.”
It is important to note that the Academy uses a complicated process to select the films that will be nominated for awards, and that a wide variety of considerations are taken into account in making these decisions. However, the horror genre as a whole has not been able to achieve the level of recognition that it rightfully deserves.
