Don’t Look Up could be Netflix’s “Zebra” at Oscar 2022. Although it was a huge hit with audiences and sparked interesting debates on social media, Adam McKay’s film divided critical opinion. Part of the press considered the project an excellent metaphor for climate change. But many experts said the film was “too obvious to be taken seriously”. Even so, Não Look Up may appear in several award categories, including Best Original Song with “Just Look Up”, by Ariana Grande and Kid Cudi.
