Surprising Movie Beats Avengers and Spider-Man at The Oscars
Everyone is talking about The Oscars, but not necessarily about the actual awards. (You know what I mean – Read more). It’s a huge night for the movie industry and there have been many surprises when it comes down to the winners.
The 94th Academy Awards featured a unique twist. According to ComicBook the awards honored both a fan favourite film and a scene. This was called the Oscars Cheer Moment. The event was held in partnership with Twitter. Fans could vote by using a special hashtag. The results are in at this point. It was a scene from Zack Snyder’s Justice League that won the Cheer Moment prize.
Fans have chosen the scene in which The Flash enters Speed Force 2021 as the favourite. It faced some tough competition – it beat Spider-Man: The Way Home’s scene with the three Spideys and Endgame’s Avengers assemble moment. Effie White performing ‘I’m Telling You’ was fourth. The iconic scene of Neo avoiding bullets in The Matrix is fifth.
One of the best things about the fan vote was the fact that scenes didn’t have to be from movies released within the last year. This makes the achievement even more impressive. Although it isn’t an Oscar, it’s still a cool way for viewers to vote on a section.
Spider-Man fans were disappointed to learn that No way Home was not nominated for Best Visual Effects. However, it lost out to Dune. It also lost to Army of the Dead, fourth in the fan-favourite movie vote. Ouch. Better luck next time, eh?
