Oscar can wait 🙂

Entertainment Weekly released last Jan 25th a piece analyzing the situation of the poor condition of isolation of a movie like Black Mass in comparison with all the other ones nominated for Oscars.

The movie by Scott Cooper with 10433842_294206544086329_1853548928510790858_n (Copy 1) Johnny Depp as mobster Jimmy “Whitey” Bulger hasn’t received any nomination for the Oscar in fact, although it appeared the most probable conclusion this one.

The online magazine analyzed the reasons.

Johnny Depp has never realistically wanted an Oscar in the past and he joked a lot about this important little statue the biggest prize an actor can receive during his career, because given by Hollywood.

That Johnny Depp was re-born 10492218_297200510453599_5041930842082269221_n-crop 1512595_296627340510916_1920857366028700172_n 10296945_773851102659454_1753884311_n 10368357_737807142908607_3782839849500156741_o 10390170_718634498178921_4131280466658513211_n St.Patty's St.Patty's scene while in Boston it was more than clear and we were all happy for it.

“Whitey” Bulger, maybe because the character of the mobster didn’t leave after all a lot at the imagination portrayed vividly and with great violence.

According to EW various the factors why Black Mass didn’t receive any nominations.

The Martian with Bostonian Matt matt damon Damon received positive reviews winning Golden Globes and Oscar nominations.

The main problem of Black Mass maybe was this one: it has been compared with the previous movies appeared to the horizon regarding Jimmy Bulger.

Black Mass hasn’t been lived so like the first historical reconstruction of the infamous mobster of South Boston or Southie, but like a sort of another “remake” of the other movies previously done by other directors and with charismatic actors. The Departed  won several Oscars for example.
This one of course a problem.

Bulger’s story not a novelty for the cinema.

But Johnny was back with Bulger and maybe this one is the most important fact of all the story.

Not another flop but a solid role and the new direction maybe he should follow.

As also remarked by EW “Bulger proved a welcome return to form for the actor, one that many suspected would have him in serious awards contention for the first time in years”.

What hopes EW and what we are all hoping is that Black Mass  will mean a real return for Johnny Depp thanks also to the… luck of the Irish.

Let me spend some words for Boston, The Boston Globe and all the rest of local media of the city continuously supporting Johnny Depp and Black Mass.

This city, Boston, with its positive vibes and cordiality has been in grade to present to Johnny a lot of relaxation and Johnny gave, pull out, thanks to it, the best of himself.
