OSCARS – Rachel Zegler can be relieved. The actress of West Side Story will be present at the 94th Academy Awards this Sunday, March 27. She, who had however announced that she had not been invited there a few days ago, will finally give a prize.

“Guys, I can’t believe I’m saying this but…see you Sunday! The absolutely amazing team of disney and our producers Snow White (film for which she is currently shooting, editor’s note) worked a real magic trick, and I am delighted to be able to celebrate my family West Side Story at the Oscars”, she rejoiced on Twitter at the announcement of the Academy of Cinema Arts and Sciences this Wednesday, March 23.

Sunday March 20, the actress, whose film West Side Story is nominated in several major categories, said he had not received an invitation from the Oscars in response to a comment from a user on Instagram. “I can’t wait to see what you’ll be wearing on Oscar night,” he told her under one of his photos. “I’m not invited so it will be a tracksuit and my boyfriend’s sweatshirt,” she replied, triggering the ire of her fans.

“Sometimes things don’t go the way you want”

“I have tried everything (…) I will see how far West Side Story from my sofa and I will be proud of the work we have done tirelessly for three years”, she said. And to conclude, bitter: “I hope that a last minute miracle will happen and that I could physically celebrate our film but sometimes everything does not go as we want. Thank you for the shock and the indignation, I am also disappointed but proud of our film”.

Rachel Zegler, 20, began her film career with the film directed by Steven Spielberg. Winner of the Golden Globe for best actress in a musical or comedy film, she was however not nominated for an Oscar. She is not the only actress to shine by her absence in the nominations. This is also the case of Lady Gaga, yet critically acclaimed for her role as Patrizia Reggiani in House of Gucci.

Like Rachel Zegler, the pop star will also give a prize this Sunday. The two actresses will be accompanied, among others, by Jason Momoa, Jake Gyllenhaal, the Williams sisters, Josh Brolin, Kevin Costner and Zoë Kravitz.
