It’s been a truly wild awards season for Helen Mirren with several projects for consideration that went into whole different directions. “1923” received little love for its first season, including a shutout at the Emmys (as they do with pretty much all of Taylor Sheridan’s shows) and a well-meaning though singular nomination at the Golden Globes for Helen Mirren. “Golda”, on the other hand, remained little seen and came at the possibly worst time to shine a light on Israel politics. Combined with warm but mediocre critics, the biopic went unnoticed in most countries and didn’t play a role during awards season at all. Then, throw in a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for Best Ensemble as well as yesterday’s, ahem, Razzie nomination for Worst Actress in “Shazam! Fury of the Gods” and you have what you may call recognition across the boards. So today’s Oscar nomination for Golda’s Make-Up & Hairstyling team comes as a nice surprise and closure for last year’s film season. The Academy Awards are handed out March 10, 2024.
