Sound Of Metal Gets 6 Oscar Nominations

March 16, 2021

There has been a lot of talk about ethnic diversity at this year’s Oscars. This year’s nominees are the most ethnically diverse group ever, with 9 nominees from ethnic minorities.

Same Difference welcomes this warmly.

What we welcome even more warmly is the 6 nominations for Sound Of Metal, an Amazon Prime Video film about a hard rock drummer who loses his hearing.

One of these has gone to British Asian actor Riz Ahmed for best actor. The film has also been nominated for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor, Best Original Screenplay, Best Film Editing and Best Sound.

We thank the Oscars for including a film with a disabled protagonist among its nominees. We wish the cast and crew every success.

For a bit of fun, here’s the trailer:
