Speaking to Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday, Gadot said, “I was very moved and touched by the feedback of all the people that were disappointed that Wonder Woman wasn’t nominated. But we certainly never did the movie for that. You can’t have it all. [Wonder Woman] was received in such an amazing, wonderful way, and we want to stay humble and grateful, and we’re going to have another movie. So who knows, maybe the next one.”
A critical and commercial success, director Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman was the subject of a Warner Bros. “For Your Consideration” campaign for best picture, best director, best screenplay, best actress (for Gal Gadot) and multiple best supporting actor and actress nominations. In addition, the studio targeted nods in such technical categories as best visual effects, best production design and best costumes. All told, Wonder Woman was submitted for consideration in 15 categories; in the end, it received no nominations.
Starring Gal Gadot in the title role, Wonder Woman grossed $821.9 million worldwide, and last week won a Critics’ Choice Award for best action movie. Jenkins and Gadot will return for a sequel, set for release on Nov. 1, 2019.
