Genuinely believe that Zoe Saldaña deserves an Oscar nom for #AvatarTheWayOfWater. Performance capture is still so new and I don’t think it’s really appreciated or fully understood yet, but some of her scenes during the last hour are seriously incredible pic.twitter.com/EmHn8xBWHt

Zoe, I've been saying this for the past 2 months. If Angela Bassett can get Oscar talk for Black Panther 2, then Zoe Saldana should be in the conversation for Avatar 2. She is prob the best mo-cap performer next to Andy Serkis

With one of the best and most notable roles, Zoe Saldaña was allegedly held back by the Oscars for reasons unknown. Her latest venture Avatar: The Way of Water currently stands at $2.07 billion at the global box office and will continue to move at a slower pace now. Her upcoming project will take the Amsterdam actor on a crime-comedy ride with Selena Gomez in Emilia Perez.
Zoe Saldaña’s Upcoming Project With Selena Gomez
The project titled Emilia Perez is an upcoming crime-comedy movie set to start shooting in a few days. The movie will feature The Adam Project actor along with Selena Gomez and is one of the most anticipated projects of all time. With Selena Gomez busy with the shooting of the third season of Only Murders in the Building and Saldaña in James Cameron’s Avatarverse, the project kept on delaying.
It was reported by Variety, however, that the shooting of the movie will start in April. The story will follow Karla Sofia Gascón’s character being “a feared, on-the-run Mexican cartel leader“. Not much regarding the release date or further cast members has been announced but the film will be helmed by director Jacques Audiard.
As for Zoe Saldaña, Avatar: The Way of Water is currently running in theaters across the world.
