This year’s Academy Awards ceremony is set to air from multiple locations, similar to the format of the 2021 Golden Globes.
There will be a super-glitzy array of A-list presenters including Brad Pitt, Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon and Harrison Ford.
Besides being up for best picture, Minari also earned five other nominations; best director, best original score, best original screenplay, best actor and best supporting actress.
Minari’s cinematographer revealed there was a ‘sexually motivated’ scene that was scrapped by bosses.
Chatting ahead of the Academy Awards, Lachlan Milne spilled the beans on whether any scenes or plots had been axed before the final cut.
‘I try not to be too critical about that but specifically with Minari, there wasn’t a lot of stuff… There was a few scenes that got abbreviated,’ the director of photography told us.
‘There was one particular scene that got cut out and I understand why they cut that out. There was something where it was a little awkwardly sexually motivated, I think, and then they cut that out.’
