It rains it pours, but sometimes the Oscars like to break routines. Netflix has spent years trying to achieve a great blow, with the help of a checkbook and great signings such as David Fincher or Alfonso Cuarón, reduced to less prizes than expected. And yet the broader success, at least in terms of nominations, has come by surprise from Germany.

In addition to leading the category of best international film, where it competes with ‘Argentina, 1985’, ‘No news at the front’ It has taken over almost the rest of the categories, competing face to face with the big favorites at these awards, which are held on March 12. Up to nine nominations has been achieved by the Netflix film, which reconciles the Oscars

with that tradition in which, if there was a choice, the statuette to some war ribbon never failed. He may not take many, but for now he has managed to break the pools with his presence in almost everything.

Curiously, it does so the year in which the cinema looked at its navel, determined to pay tribute with Babylon by Damien Chazelle far from the achievements of ‘La La Land’ with just three nominations; the anecdotal presence of ‘The Empire of Light’ by Sam Mendes or ‘The Fabelmans’, Steven Spielberg’s personal tribute to the seventh art that, this time, competes in all big things, with seven nominations, including those for best film, director and original script.

The director of ‘Schindler’s List’ will not have it easy, all the time his great rival in the main categories is ‘Inisherin’s Banshee’, pure black humor by Martin McDonaugh (‘Three billboards on the outskirts’), with the trump card of a stellar cast –Barry Keoghan, Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson and Kerry Condon– that has made it to the top with four nominations. The chronicle of a broken friendship in Ireland has been well liked by academics.

The other surprise of the Oscar nominations, by theme and for sneaking into absolutely almost everything, is ‘Everything at once everywhere’, with eleven nominations, the most. The film directed by Los Daniels, multiverse and martial arts included, catapults Michelle Yeoh, Jamie Lee Curtis and Ke Huy Quanwhose triumph, more than an improbable statuette, is to deprive others of more renown, such as Olivia Colman or Viola Davis, of mention.

Ana de Armas, the Spanish hope at the Oscars

Spain could not get their chest out in the Oscar nominations. The options for Carla Simón’s ‘Alcarrás’ vanished in December, when she was left out of the list of eligible candidates, and the nominations for one of the four fiction short films that were still standing –’Tula’, ‘Votamos’ , ‘Plastic killer’ and ‘El tratamiento’– got lost along the way in a category whose track record remains unprecedented for our country. The only national consolation is the nomination of Ana de Armas for ‘Blonde’, which she will debut as a candidate at the Dolby Theater after years knocking on the doors of Hollywood. The Spanish-Cuban Marilyn Monroe is the only thing that has been saved from the controversial adaptation of the book by Joyce Carol Oates, although it is another blonde ambition, Cate Blanchett, who threatens to take the Oscar, her third statuette, for her role in ‘Tár’.
