      Oscars 2021: Netizens Celebrate Chloé Zhao's Historic Win, Marvel Fans Are Excited For The Eternals

      |

      Chloé Zhao's history-making Oscars sweep for Nomadland is set to be the talk for the town. Back in 2019, the filmmaker was roped in by Marvel Entertainment to direct the Phase four-film The Eternals. Netizens including Marvel fans were quick to celebrate Chloe's big triumph on social media. Meanwhile, her speech faced censorship in her birth country China and met with a lukewarm response.

      In her winning speech, Chloé discussed the importance of seeing the good in people, which led people to praise her even more on social media. The filmmaker said, "This is for anyone who has the faith and the courage to hold on to the goodness in themselves. And to hold on to the goodness in each other. No matter how difficult it is to do that."

      One Twitter user wrote, "I really loved Chloé Zhao's speech. I admittedly get consumed by the darkness in other people. A reminder about the goodness is welcome. #Oscars" Another said, "Chloe Zhao is a brilliant Director but wearing sneakers to the #Oscars makes her my hero."

      Marvel fans also joined in the fun as one user wrote, "Marvel can [now] add an Academy Award Winning director to their ranks." "Eternals just got a huge boost in visibility," another added.

      Meanwhile, in China, Zhao's history-making success has not been celebrated just yet. State media in China is yet to open up about her win. After a film magazine Watch Movies with over 14 million followers talked about Zhao's win, it was censored within hours. The page reportedly reads, "according to relevant laws and regulations and policies, the page is not found."
