24 Mar – It looks like all the backlash has now brought fruition as it was revealed that the 2022 Academy Awards is now inviting Rachel Zegler to attend the said event.
Not only that, she is also set to be a presenter at the upcoming awards.
According to THR, the actress, who is currently shooting her new movie, the Disney live-action remake of "Snow White" in London, is now having her schedule rearrange so that she would be able to be at the Oscars this coming Monday, 28 March.
It was back on 20 March that the "West Side Story" lead actress told her fans that she was not invited to the prestigious event, after some fans commented about wanting to see what she would wear at the Oscars.
Zegler's admission sparked anger among many, some even stating the absurdity that the said awards invited non-industry types including Tony Hawk and Shaun White to present but neglected a star of one of its Best Picture nominee.
