Viewers around the world are left puzzled after they discovered that a live-action adaptation of Pinocchio had been released in 2019.
Pinocchio is a story that has thrilled us all sometimes in our life. Almost all of us have owned a storybook narrating the puppet’s story but how many of you knew that there was a live-action movie made on the story? I didn’t.
Last night viewers were left puzzled after they discovered that a live-action adaptation of Pinocchio had been nominated for the Oscars. The film's existence had seemed to escape many people's attention. If you didn't realize it existed either, here's the trailer:
Sounds quite interesting right?
Having been released in 2019, directed by Matteo Garrone and starring previous Oscar winner Roberto Benigni, Pinocchio had been nominated for two gongs - one for Best Costume Design and another for Best Makeup and Hairstyling.
However, when the film was first mentioned during the ceremony, viewers were quick to announce their shock at not knowing anything about it.
Netizens took to Twitter to express their surprise. One person wrote,
"Just found out they made a live-action Pinocchio movie this year and it will haunt my dreams."

"2020 was so f***ing wild that they literally made a live action Pinocchio movie and none of us even knew about it."
A third person wrote,
"This whole Pinocchio live action film feels like a reverse Mandela effect where it happened but we all don't believe it did."
Meanwhile, another Twitter user asked
"When did they slip a new Pinocchio past me?"
While another wrote,
"The pandemic was so wild there was a new Pinocchio movie and nobody f***ing told me? I love that little a**hole!"
However, despite its nominations, Pinocchio didn't win either award. Instead, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom won the award for Best Makeup and Hairstyling as well as Best Costume Design.
