What Are The Batman's Awards Chances This Season?

The publication believes The Batman will have a strong awards season, which is sure to interest many superhero movie fans. While superhero movies have tended to dominate the box office and change over the past decade, when awards time comes, they rarely take home a trophy. Despite winning two Saturn Awards for Best Director and Best Costume Design, Batman didn't make any significant headway early on.

The 2023 Golden Globe nominations announced in early December did completely snub the film. The only superhero project to receive any nominations was Marvel's Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which was nominated for Best Original Song and Best Supporting Actress for Angela Bassett. The Golden Globes ceremony is often seen as a predictor of Oscar nominations, although the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has recently come under fire for its lack of diversity in its voting body, so it Whether this will continue to hold remains to be seen.

So far, Batman gets more chances with the Academy, as it appears 3 times in the 10 shortlists they released for certain Oscar categories. The film was among the shortlisted for makeup and hairstyling, sound and visual effects, though fans were dismayed that Michael Giacchino's score was conspicuously left out. Nominations for Best Adapted Screenplay are up in the air, so The Batman might have a chance in that category as well. While the Golden Globes are a wash for superhero movies, which aren't technically part of the DC Universe, it has a chance to win at least one Oscar in the technical category, though any bigger awards seem like a no-brainer. Daydream has not been featured at any other major awards show so far.
