How to be a winner at the Oscars
“This year, the movies that are getting the most nominations are also the ones that have the most awards.
They’ve all been nominated by the same director and are all based on a different story.
And they’re all very much part of the same genre.”
That’s the view of actress and director Ashley Greene, who stars in the Oscar-nominated film Victory Greens.
Greene said she was inspired by the movie-going public to take up film and the Oscar nominations that come with them seriously.
“I love seeing all the awards and seeing what the people that nominate them are doing,” she said.
“They’re doing what they believe is the right thing to do.
And that is to be critical and critical of the industry, of what’s going on in the industry.”
Greene, 38, said she didn’t know she would be nominated until after the movie had been released in May.
But she said she wanted to be sure that the films that were nominated would be worth watching.
“It’s not that I was thinking about it before, it was just the fact that I didn’t want to miss the big nominations,” Greene said.
Her Oscar-winning debut, In the Woods, won her best supporting actress award at the 2016 Academy Awards.
Greene has also won a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Emily, a lesbian working for a construction company, in the HBO series Westworld.
“There are so many different things I’m proud of,” Greene added.
“In the Woods is my first and only Oscar nomination.
That’s a huge accomplishment, especially when I look at my career.”
Greene’s film, which is based on the real-life story of Emily and her partner, John, was nominated for best picture.
But it lost out to director Alfonso Cuaron’s Moonlight, which won best picture in January.
And the two films together are not the only ones to be nominated this year.
A number of films from the genre of documentary have also received nods.
In the Trees, starring Emma Stone, has been nominated for Best Documentary Feature.
And in the meantime, the Oscar race is still very much alive.
In a recent interview with Variety, Greene revealed that she has received a few emails from producers and directors who are considering supporting her.
“The movie is about this little girl, and it’s been nominated, so they’re thinking about doing a movie about this kid,” she explained.
“And it’s so great to be able to get recognition from people that want to support the kind of movies that we do.”
Greene, meanwhile, is also looking forward to winning her first major awards for Victory Greens, a movie that is both a documentary and a musical.
“This is my fourth nomination for Victory Green, so I’m definitely excited,” Greene joked.
“When we were in the making of it, I was going through the same sort of thinking that I’ve been through for years.”
