Although superhero movies are frequently recognized in the technical Oscar categories (last year Suicide Squad won the Best Makeup and Hairstyling Oscar), rarely are they ranked in the upper echelon categories. The most notable example was when Heath Ledger won a posthumous Best Supporting Actor Oscar for playing The Joker in The Dark Knight. The 90th Academy Award nominations will be announced on Tuesday, January 23, so there are still a few weeks to go until we learn if Wonder Woman will crack that barrier. But even if the DCEU film is unable to do so, perhaps it will be nominated in other categories, like Best Visual Effects. Regardless, Wonder Woman has already cemented itself as an incredibly successful movie, so no matter what awards it may or may not win in the near future, it will still be appreciated by many in the years to come.
