news culture Oscars 2022: Dune is a hit and gets many statuettes!
Tonight was the 94th Academy Awards, which took place at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. If CODA, Will Smith and Jessica Chastain emerged victorious in the queen categories, Dune by Denis Villeneuve achieved a veritable harvest of statuettes!
In a ceremony marked by the slap given by Will Smith to Chris Rockwho made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s alopecia, Dune by Denis Villeneuve has been rewarded many times.
A rain of rewards for Dune!
Released in France on September 15, 2021, the new adaptation of Frank Herbert’s science fiction novel has been a real success, generating more than 400 million dollars at the global box office. Hailed for its special effects, its photography, its sets or even its soundtrack, the feature film did not pass through the meshes of the Academy, and won many golden statuettes.
Nominated in 10 categories, Dune, whose sequel has already been announced, won no less than six trophies, establishing itself as the most awarded film at the ceremony. If the Oscar for best film escapes the adventures of Paul Atreides by being awarded to CODA, a Franco-American remake of The Bélier Family, Dune has made an impression, despite the absence of Denis Villeneuve in the race for best director, granted to Jane Campion for The Power of the Dog.
