WB Submits Wonder Woman 1984 For All Oscar Categories

Wonder Woman 1984 released on December 25, 2020, on HBO Max for streaming and in theatres for the viewers to watch. According to the initial reviews, it seemed groundbreaking, but then things were not churning out to be good for WW1984. The movie had lost its Certified Fresh rating on Rotten Tomato. To fully understand this, you must know Rotten Tomato works. For a wide-release film like WW84 (indies are scored differently), anything that has an initial score of 75% and above is considered Certified Fresh provided it has been reviewed by at least 80 critics. When the score drops below 70%, it loses its Certified Fresh rating and drops into the Fresh category. Anything below 59% gets the dreaded Rotten label. Earlier, Wonder Woman 1984 stood at a mediocre 65% on the Tomatometer and 73% audience score.

Even after all this, Warner Bros decided to submit Wonder Woman 1984 in all the categories of the 93rd Academy Awards. Warner Bros. created a “For Your Consideration” page and submitted Wonder Woman for consideration in all the categories. This includes everything from Best Picture to Best Original Score. The following list details the 15 Oscar categories and each actor or production crew member Warner Bros. put forth for consideration.
