Here's How Sophia Loren Can Make Oscars History in 2021

Sophia Loren is expected to be nominated for an Oscar next year for her performance in the upcoming Netflix movie The Life Ahead and she’ll break some impressive records if she does land that nomination!

The 86-year-old actress won an Oscar back in 1962 for her performance in Two Women and she was the first actor to win for a foreign language movie. She was also nominated in 1965 for her performance in Marriage Italian Style.

If Sophia is nominated in 2021, it will be a 56-year span between her two most recent nominations, marking the longest gap between acting nominations. The current record is held by Henry Fonda and he had a 41-year gap between nominations.

Variety noted that Sophia will also be the oldest nominee in the Best Actress category. The current record holder is Emmanuelle Riva, who was 85 when she was nominated for Amour.

The Life Ahead is directed by Sophia‘s son, Edoardo Ponti. Here’s the synopsis: “In seaside Italy, a Holocaust survivor with a daycare business, Madame Rosa (Loren), takes in 12-year-old street kid Momo, the boy who recently robbed her. The two loners become each other’s protectors, anchoring an unconventional family.”

Screen Icon Sophia Loren Returns To The Movies In Netflix's 'The Life Ahead'

Sophia Loren is back on the big screen with Netflix‘s upcoming feature, The Life Ahead.

The 86-year-old Oscar winning actress stars as Rosa in the drama film.

Here’s the official summary: In the colorful Italian port city of Bari, the streetwise 12-year-old Senegalese orphan Momo (Ibrahima Gueye) has ambitions to make his fortune in the underworld of the town’s shady alleyways.

One day, he steals a bag of items from the elderly Madame Rosa (Loren), a Holocaust survivor who makes a meagre living raising the children of prostitutes with whom she once shared the streets.

When Momo is forced to apologize to Rosa, she reluctantly agrees to take him in temporarily and the two lonely individuals find an unlikely family in each other through a deep and unconventional bond.

“The Life Ahead”, directed by Sophia‘s son, Edoardo Ponti, will make its debut on Netflix on November 13.

The film is also being planned for a November theatrical release.
