The Academy passes a new statement, Andrea Riseborough's Oscar nomination for To Leslie will not be revoked!

Actor Andrea Riseborough's Oscar nomination for Best Actress as a Leading Role was most surprising for many, as she took into the final five without any earlier nominations for her work in, To Leslie. Since then, the Academy has paid constant attention to cross checking whether the grassroots campaign has broken any rule for Andrea's nomination. Now, the Academy has released a statement that Andrea's nomination will not be revoked despite the backlash.


Last Week, The Academy revealed that they will conduct a review of the nomination after multiple questions elevated on the campaigning efforts of the film that led to her surprise nomination. The Special Screenings of the film were hosted by many members of the Academy as part of the grassroots campaign, like Charlize Theron, Gwyneth Paltrow, Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Edward Norton, and Minnie Driver. Actors like Kate Winslet, Amy Adams, Jane Fonda, Naomi Watts, and Demi Moore also assisted in fetching Andrea's performance to the radar in the closing days of the voting.

Check out the official statement released by the Academy:-

After reviewing every aspect, the Academy has announced that the Best Actress nomination for Andrea won't be canceled. They have released an official statement, AMPAS CEO Bill Kramer said, "Based on concerns that surfaced last week around the TO LESLIE awards campaign, the Academy began a review into the film's campaigning tactics. The Academy has determined the activity in question does not rise to the level that the film's nomination should be rescinded. However, we did discover social media and outreach campaigning tactics that caused concern. These tactics are being addressed with the responsible parties directly. The purpose of the Academy's campaign regulations is to ensure a fair and ethical awards process—these are core values of the Academy. Given this review, it is apparent that components of the regulations must be clarified to help create a better framework for respectful, inclusive, and unbiased campaigning. These changes will be made after this awards cycle and will be shared with our membership. The Academy strives to create an environment where votes are based solely on the artistic and technical merits of the eligible films and achievements."
