Avengers: Endgame is one of the highest-grossing films ever. The film not only swept the box-office like a hurricane but also surpassed the lifetime collections of James Cameron’s Avatar which is quite a commendable job. Knowing how the film made an impact on people. Disney and Marvel recently launched a campaign to have Avengers: Endgame nominated for a number of categories for the Oscars 2020. This category includes Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Score, Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design, and many others. However, Robert Downey Jr. is nowhere in the list.
Disney is not giving any importance or mention to Iron Man from Avengers: Endgame, but the fans of Robert Downey Jr. are so not happy with this fact. Unhappy with their decision, the disappointed and outrageous fans have decided to take a stand on this matter by launching a petition to have the actor nominated for the Oscars for his performance in the film.
One user wrote, “I’m all for this but if Robert Downey Jr. if not listed for best actor then Imma start a riot.” While another one wrote, “Wait, Robert Downey Jr. has not been listed for best actor? Are they out of their minds?” One simply wrote, “Robert Downey Jr deserves at least an Oscar nomination based solely on his monologue about how much he couldn't trust Steve when Thanos showed up in Infinity War #AvengersEndgame.”
Well, we wonder now what Oscars and the makers have to say about their decision. Will the fans bring a change in this Oscar list?
