Ridley Scott's 'Napoleon' Oscars Submissions: Vanessa Kirby Nominated for Best Supporting Actress

A Cinematic Masterpiece with Oscar Ambitions

As the anticipation builds for Ridley Scott's upcoming epic, "Napoleon," which offers a grand portrayal of the French emperor's extraordinary rise to power, fans and critics alike are eagerly awaiting the first reactions. Variety has exclusively learned which Oscar categories the film will be entered into for consideration. Notably, Vanessa Kirby will be competing for the coveted title of Best Supporting Actress.

Joaquin Phoenix, known for his stellar performances, including his win for Best Actor in "Joker" (2019) and three other nominations throughout his illustrious career ("Gladiator," "Walk the Line," and "The Master"), will be aiming for the Leading Actor category for his role as Napoleon. Meanwhile, Kirby, who earned her first Oscar nomination for "Pieces of a Woman" (2020), will be vying for the Best Supporting Actress category for her portrayal of Josephine, Napoleon's wife and his one true love. The film will also see two talented supporting actors in the running Tahar Rahim ("The Mauritanian") and Rupert Everett ("My Best Friend's Wedding").

Ridley Scott, a seasoned director with a legacy of Oscar recognition, having received three nominations for directing ("Thelma Louise," "Gladiator," and "Black Hawk Down") and a Best Picture nomination for "The Martian," is once again set to contend in the directing category. He's joined by co-producers Kevin J. Walsh and Mark Huffam. The artisans behind "Napoleon" are likely to excel in various technical categories:

Distributed by Apple Original Films and Sony Pictures, "Napoleon" is set to grace theaters on November 22nd, promising an unforgettable cinematic experience.
