Christopher Nolan’s Tenet Nominated for 2 Academy Awards

This morning the nominees for The 93rd Annual Academy Awards were announced. Nominated for Production Design were Nathan Crowley and Kathy Lucas for their work on Tenet, and nominated for Visual Effects were Andrew Jackson, David Lee, Andrew Lockley and Scott Fisher. Oddly left out of the nominees were Ludwig Göransson for his brilliant original score, and Hoyte van Hoytema for his beautiful IMAX cinematography, among others. There almost seemed to be a campaign of self-sabotage around Tenet, with FYC campaigns and screeners for the film essentially being nonexistent.

Nominees and winners are selected by the nearly 10,000 member Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The ceremony for The 93rd Annual Academy Awards will take place on Sunday, April 25, 2021, 2021 and will air live on ABC.
