It’s unsurprising that the studio is aiming high after breaking through the Best Picture barrier last year.
The biggest shock here is that they aren’t putting forward any of the cast for acting nods. Audiences were sure that Robert Downey Jr. and possibly Chris Evans would be in the running for Best Actor at next year’s competition. From this line-up, it’s clear that Disney is more focused on technical awards. Though getting another Best Picture nomination under their belt would be a coup. Not to mention a Best Director nod for the Russos. The likelihood of any of these nominations is up in the air for now. But you can guarantee that you’ll see a whole lot more of Disney on the campaign trail before 2020’s Academy Awards.
