The Oscars 2016 第88回アカデミー授賞式

今年のホストはクリス・ロックです。 最多ノミネート作品は、レオナルド・ディカプリオ主演の「The Revenant レヴェナント」で、 次に多かったのが日本でも大ヒットした「マッドマックス怒りのデス・ロード」です。 ディカプリオは初オスカーを手にするかが注目されていますね。 シルベスター・スタローンは1977年にロッキーで主演男優賞にノミネートされて以来だそうです。 長編アニメーション部門で「思い出マーニー」がノミネートされていますね。 受賞すれば千と千尋の神隠し以来の快挙だそうです。 大ファンという訳ではないし詳しくもないのですが、 なぜかアカデミー授賞式前夜に2年連続で訪れてしまったハリウッド。 折角なので写真を撮ってきました。授賞式準備のためにスタッフが働いていました。 去年よりあまり飾り付けされていない印象です。相変わらず人は沢山いました。
