Den falschen Film für den Oscar nominiert? Sicher ein Fehler aber nicht so schlimm meint die Künstlerin und Age of Artists Mitglied Laura Kuch im Interview mit Deutschlandradio Kultur. „Man könnte aber auch aus einer ganz anderen Perspektive da mal draufschauen und könnte sagen, da ist ja was ganz Ungewöhnliches, was ganz Überraschendes passiert, etwas, was in Erinnerung bleibt und sich eben auch abhebt von dem sonst so perfekten oder makellosen Ablauf in so einer Oscar-Verleihung.“ Allenfalls ein Schlamassel also.
