The First Oscar Night Award went to “Promising Young Woman” for “Best Original Screenplay”. The winner was Emerald Fennell, who also directed and produced the film.” This film was made by the most amazing people in the world who made it in 23 days, and with a lot of genius, love and humor, and I have to thank a lot of people. I want to thank Carey Mulligan, the producers, the cast, finally with my family,” he said on stage.
The film follows Cassandra (Carey Mulligan), a 30-year-old woman who lives with her parents and works all day in a coffee shop run by her boss, Gail (Laverne Cox). But at night it’s another story: pretend to be drunk to show how men try to exploit their vulnerability in bars and bowling alleys. The film puts in the foreground topics that need to be talked about: consent, culture of rape and cover-up. In turn, it gives an account of the complicity of institutions and the system in the face of cases of sexist violence, as well as the lack of gender-based justice that governs society.
