New TV adverts for two of this year’s big award season contenders have appeared over the weekend.
Joy is Jennifer Lawrence’s attempt at a fourth nomination and sees her working once again with David O Russell, Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro. The film’s being described as a story of four generations – but this new ad focuses squarely on JLaw.
Meanwhile Leonardo DiCaprio hopes to impress the voters once again with The Revenant, directed by Alejandro Inarritu, who won Best Picture last year with the brilliant Birdman.
The Revenant is very different from its predecessor with many critics describing it as “brutal”. Will Academy voters go for it? We’ll have to wait and see.
