And the Oscar goes to….

Poor Things wins in four categories for Emma Stone, Production Design, Makeup & Hairstyling & Costume Design at the 96th Annual Academy Awards.


In her acceptance speech, Emma Stone said “It’s not about me. It’s about a team that came together to make something greater than the sum of its parts and that is the best part about making movies.”


James Price and Shona Heath, along with set decorator Zsuzsa Mihalek, was the production design team behind the Searchlight Pictures film. Price and Heath have already won an Art Directors Guild Award, as well as accolades from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (Bafta) and the Set Decorators Society of America alongside the film’s set decorator, Zsuzsa Mihalek.

It is a huge joy, an excellent result, and further momentum for Hungarian filmmakers and the entire industry due to Zsuzsa Mihalek’s Oscar for Jórgosz Lánthimos’ film Poor Things, made in Hungary,’ Csaba Káel, the government commissioner responsible for the development of the Hungarian film industry, stated, adding: ‘Zsuzsa Mihalek, along with her team of Hungarian professionals, contributed to the creation of a film of historical significance, which has been praised and awarded worldwide since its premiere. Once again, Hungarian filmmakers have proven that with their talent, enthusiasm, and diligence, they create productions of world-class quality that further enhance the prestige of the Hungarian film industry globally. I congratulate Zsuzsa Mihalek, producer Ildikó Kemény, and the entire team with great pleasure!
