They have joy, we have grief. The network was struck by the photos of the Navalnys and the 20 Days in Mariupol team at the Oscars in 2023 and 2024

Online, the Navalny and 20 Days in Mariupol film teams at the Oscars were compared

On the night of March 11, Ukraine won an Oscar for the documentary 20 Days in Mariupol , which was produced by a team of incredibly talented filmmakers in total-black. They honored the memory of the victims and reminded us that Ukrainians are going through dark times, but remain committed to their cause and the desire to highlight Russia's crimes.

Against this backdrop, the outrage of last year's debutants, the family of the so-called Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, who received a similar Oscar, looks particularly comical. Journalist Maryna Danylyuk-Yarmolayeva impressed the network with a photo comparison.

"Well, let's add a little bit of lookism. Last year's Navalnys looked so garish. And what an exquisite team "20 Days in Mariupol" is. You can't take your eyes off the female documentary filmmakers," the author wrote.

Last year, the family of Navalny, who was allegedly tortured in a Russian prison, came to the red carpet in cheerful colors: the daughter wore an acid yellow dress and her mother wore a red one. Only the son kept a somewhat restrained style.

The team, who saw Russian war crimes with their own eyes after spending almost three weeks in the suffering Mariupol, took the stage in black suits and dresses.

"I am delighted with Chernov and his team. They represent Ukraine as a country of European civilization with their appearance, restraint, and excellent English.", "Ours are in mourning, it could not be otherwise, and the Navalnys are not mourning.", "What an apt comparison. Different meanings, different people," "They have joy, we have grief," Ukrainians wrote in the comments.

It is noteworthy that people started comparing the two teams long before the Oscars. Before that, the documentary 20 Days in Mariupol won the prestigious British BAFTA award, where the filmmakers also wore black.

Even then, moviegoers noticed how differently countries presented themselves on the world stage. The "Grief-stricken" Navalnys talked about their husband and father, not forgetting to turn their best face to the camera, while the Ukrainians showed mourning.

In his speech, the videographer and war journalist Mstyslav Chernov admitted that he wished he had never made this film, and that he would not hesitate to exchange the golden statuette for peace in his native country.
