Disney pushing Robert Downey Jr. for "Endgame" Oscar nomination

Avengers Endgame nearly didn't include Captain Marvel fighting Thanos

Avengers Endgame nearly didn't include Captain Marvel fighting Thanos

Only a month after Disney bosses felt the wrath of Iron Man followers for not together with actor Robert Downey Jr.as a part of Avengers: Endgame's Oscars marketing campaign, the Mouse Home has formally modified course.

After initially deciding not to push for a campaign for Robert Downey Jr.to get an Oscar nomination.

However that is not all. Disney is going forward with it. Avengers: Endgame broke box office records (and frankly, my heart). That call was much more stunning provided that Disney's unique "for your consideration" announcement for Endgame included deliberate campaigns for Greatest Image and Greatest Director, to not point out almost each technical class.

Actors Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige pose for a photo at the handprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, U.S. April 23, 2019.

It's important to note that Downey isn't the only one that Disney is supporting. Endgame stars Scarlett Johansson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, and Brie Larson are being pushed for the Best Supporting Actress Award as well.

Flattering to be mistaken for Keanu Reeves’ girlfriend: Helen Mirren
Although they are both tight-lipped their alleged romance, they seemed to confirm their relationship on the red carpet last week. Grant and Reeves reportedly met in 2009 and have collaborated on two books together, Ode to Happiness and Shadows .

Robert Downey Jr. last appeared as Iron Man in Avengers: Endgame.

There is little doubt that Robert Downey Jr.'s performance in Avengers: Endgame was so moving that fans were moved to tears. Given that Iron Man has the most screen time compared to any other Avenger in all movies, the decision seemed a bit offputting.

I feel like Downey Jr. deserves at least a nomination for his work as Tony Stark.

However whereas Iron Man followers will almost definitely be over the moon that Downey Jr. could have an opportunity to take a bow with a golden statue in his hand on Hollywood's greatest evening, the person himself might not be fairly as excited at this sudden flip of occasions.

Following Avengers: Endame proved to be a results each critically and financially, Disney's Oscars campaign for the Marvel Studios movie now contains Robert Downey Jr. and quite a few of his co-stars for the Ideal Supporting Actor/Actress awards. It's for "best Supporting Actor".
