Marvel Fans Think ROBERT DOWNEY JR.'s "Avengers: Endgame" Performance Is Oscar-Worthy
The official list of nominees for next year's Oscars won't be out until January but Marvel fans have been lobbying real hard for Avengers: Endgame star Robert Downey Jr. to get a Best Actor nod.
It all began when an unofficial "consideration list" rumored to have been curated by Disney leaked online which includes the categories they're aiming to win. You'll notice that Downey's name has been omitted from the campaign which naturally made MCU fans upset and furious.
Here's @Disney's "For Your Consideration" list for #AvengersEndgame's awards season campaign, which notably omits all of the film's actors & actresses... https://t.co/re7D0kNT9D pic.twitter.com/wVGAFQ30Sc— MCU Direct (@MCU_Direct) October 3, 2019

The only one that it really deserves is the Best Actor nom for RDJ, and they didn't list it for him?! The #MCU franchise was basically built on his shoulders. Without him, there is no #AvengersEndgame. #NominateRDJ pic.twitter.com/VjBrqcExRv— Megan Larson (@meganlarsonlive) October 3, 2019
What the fuck is this shit...... so we’re just going to ignore @RobertDowneyJr huh? Just act like that didn’t happen......?

look I get that RDJ wouldn’t win the Oscar for his role if he was nominated bc superhero movies, but for Disney to snub him out of their Oscar campaign when he built the fcking MCU???? WOW— brooklyn (@pepperstvrk) October 3, 2019
Last August during Disney's D23 Expo, RDJ received the Disney Legend award for his contributions to the Walt Disney Company. He has two Oscar nominations under his belt for Chaplin and Tropic Thunder. Do you think his tearjerking performance in 'Endgame' is "worthy" of his third Oscar nod?
Earlier this year, Black Panther bagged three awards – Best Production Design, Best Costume Design and Best Original Music Score – at the 91st Academy Awards, becoming the first Marvel Studios film to win an Oscar.
