The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences is conducting a review of their rules and regulations after actress Andrea Riseborough received a shock nomination for her performance in the film To Leslie.
Riseborough, who is best known for her roles in films such as Mandy, Birdman and Battle of the Sexes, was nominated for her performance in the film To Leslie. This was a surprise to many, as the film had not received much attention prior to the nomination.

Riseborough has been praised for her performance in To Leslie, with many critics calling it one of her best roles to date. She has also earned praise for her other roles in films such as Oblivion, The Death of Stalin, and Black Mirror.
The Academy’s review is expected to be completed in the coming weeks, and the results will be made public. Until then, fans of Riseborough and To Leslie will have to wait and see if the nomination will be upheld.
