Internet wants only ONE Oscar nomination, and that's for Dolly de Leon
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: The nominations for the 95th annual Academy Awards are set to be announced on Tuesday morning, January 24, and fans of actress Dolly de Leon are praying for a nomination for the star.
The Filipina thespian appears to be the favorite for the Academy Award for best supporting actress nomination, shortly after winning the honor for her role in the critically acclaimed 'Triangle of Sadness' at the 2022 Guldbbage Awards. Leon, 55, notably also won best-supporting performance at the 2022 Los Angeles Films Critics Association Awards held in December, 2022. Meanwhile, she also made history by being nominated for the same category in the Golden Globe Awards and the British Academy Film Awards.
It's worth noting that 'Triangle of Sadness' has won several awards accolades at the Guldbagge Awards including best film, best direction for Ruben Ostlund, best actor in a supporting role for Zlatko Buric, best costume design, and best mask design. In the film, Leon plays the role of Abigail, a toilet manager at a lavish yacht who finds herself in a position of power while stranded on an island with rich strangers, according to CNN Phillipines.
Fans of De Leon prayed for the actress to complete the awards streak with an Oscar nomination. "At any moment, the Oscars 2023 nominees will be announced. Hoping and praying for the very best for our very own Dolly de Leon. #OscarNoms," one tweeted. "I just want Dolly De Leon to get an Oscar nom. It would mean so much to the Filipino film industry," another wrote. "I don’t want western validation but Dolly De Leon deserves recognition. It’s high time Filipino actors get their deserved flowers at the Oscars," a comment read.
"You know what will happen @TheAcademy if you don't give Dolly De Leon a spot for the Best Supporting Actress nomination," someone else quipped. "Dolly De Leon worked as an actress for 30 years majority of her work composed of being a bit player, extra, character actor, etc and to NOMINATE HER would be so glorious, she represents the underrepresented, prove to us that the Oscars is for artists no matter where they're from," another offered.
