Juanjo Giménez wanted to take many friends and family to the Oscars. But the Hollywood Academy, at first, barely gave two tickets to the short filmmaker, nominated in 2017 for Timecode He ended up getting some more, after pressing and discovering how "stingy" the institution is. Alberto Iglesias also has a peculiar relationship with the Academy. The Oscars, of course, appreciate him, since they have nominated him three times, for the soundtracks of The loyal gardener (2006), Kites in the sky (2008) and The mole (2012). The problem that the Spanish musician has with the institution is rather that he is not exactly a model academic. So much so that this year they did not send him the films and he fears that they will end up "throwing" him.
