The Polish director’s movie Corpus Christi was in September selected as Poland’s official entry for Best International Feature Film.
In its annual Hollywood extravaganza, the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will hand out the Oscar awards in the early morning hours of Monday Polish time.
Komasa’s film is up against some tough competition: Pain and Glory by Spanish director Pedro Almodovar, and South Korean black comedy Parasite.
Inspired by real-life events, Corpus Christi tells the story of a young man who pretends to be a priest after experiencing a spiritual transformation in a juvenile detention centre.
Komasa told Polish Radio ahead of the high-profile ceremony in Hollywood: "I’m here to represent our film and Poland."
At the same time, Komasa declined to evaluate his movie’s chances of winning, saying that his dream was to see the Oscar nomination helping him to make his next films.
"Being nominated for an Oscar helps because it’s something that stays with you for the rest of your life," he said.
Corpus Christi, which features Polish actor Bartosz Bielenia in the main role, in September won the people’s choice award at the 44th Polish Film Festival in the Baltic city of Gdynia.
