No Oscar Campaign For RDJ? Avengers: Endgame Fans Surprised By Disney Snub

Some fans really want Robert Downey Jr.to be nominated for a Best Actor Oscar for his performance in Avengers: Endgame. However, sadly for fans, Robert Downey Jr's name hasn't been mentioned in the list.

Disney have launched this 12 months's official For Your Consideration web site, which lists the flicks from their studio that are being put ahead for the Oscars 2020 nominations. Originally pushed for 11 nominations, the film earned one Academy Awards nod for Best Visual Effects but lost to First Man. Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are on the list for Best Adapted Screenplay.

That said, it's great that Disney is campaigning for the film to win Best Picture.

The authorization request was filed in Montreal court Thursday against USA -based Epic Games Inc. and its Canadian subsidiary. But Calex Légal says that won't stand up in Quebec Court as companies have to clearly disclose risks with their products.

Both, Marvel fans and Endgame makers Joe Russo and Anthony Russo, have consistently maintained that they believe RDJ is worthy of an Oscar for his performance in the movie. Though the Academy Awards have rarely recognised any star from the superhero movies and they are known for neglecting their work against the other contenders, Disney could have at least suggested his name from their side. I'll leave room for Disney to add RDJ later, but since they already have the lineup posted, Downey's absence is conspicuous.

Co-director of Endgame, Joe Russo, had previously endorsed a Robert Downey Jr nomination. Disney would just be there to help, since every studio will be pushing its own team. The callback in question ties into how Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man was able to wield the Infinity Stones in the climax of Avengers: Endgame when they almost killed the Hulk when the Jade Giant snapped everybody back to existence. We made the two most expensive movies ever back-to-back. Now that the box office milestones have been registered, it is to see how the superhero movie performs in the awards season. "There were people bawling in movie theatres, hyperventilating". That is a profound performance, when you can touch audiences all over the world to that degree.
