  1. First Man was nominated for Best Production Design, Best Sound Editing, and Best Sound Mixing, and won for Best Visual Effects.

  2. This movie definitely deserved better.

    Although I will say this: yes, the “controversy” over the omission of the flag being planted was 100% manufactured. However, anyone who came to the defense of this movie by saying “oh it’s more about Neil Armstrong than America” missed the scene immediately before the launch where Gil-Scott Heron’s poem Whitey on the Moon is recited in what I believe is its entirety. I found this sequence to not fit with the tone of the movie at all, and basically felt like if the filmmakers felt they had time for that, they certainly had time to show Armstrong planting the flag.
