I'm not entirely sure how, but it would seem that New Year's Eve 2012, at least when it comes to movie news, it's all about remembering some of the best film soundtracks of the year. It began earlier when I posted my top 10 list for the Best Movie Music Moments of 2012, and then, just a little while later, we found an awesome Django Unchained soundtrack commentary from writer/director Quentin Tarantino. And now The Weinstein Company is expanding their Oscar campaign for Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master by releasing previously unheard versions of Jonny Greenwood tracks from the film's score. In total the studio has released nine songs, with two of them repeating twice, and while all of them eventually made it on to the final soundtrack, it's interesting to listen to the different versions. To listen to the music, just head over to The Weinstein Company's award site. Greenwood, »
There’s no doubt that the year in cinema has delivered some stellar scores and soundtracks and today we’ve a variation on two of the best. We’ve already featured Jonny Greenwood‘s released score for Paul Thomas Anderson‘s The Master, but now, as awards season is in full swing, The Weinstein Company has went ahead and made [...] »

So, you've seen Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" once or twice, maybe even three times, and you're still unraveling the mysteries. Well, it looks like there is even more to uncover from the movie as the complete score by Radiohead guitarist and composer Jonny Greenwood has made its way online. The Weinstein Company has posted it over at their awards site for the film. And while it contains all of the pieces that appeared on the official soundtrack, there is much more as well including, most notably, a second version of "Able Bodied Seamen" running over six-minutes long, six "Overtones" as well and a few more bits and bobs. It's another way to go down the rabbit hole of the movie all over again. (But oddly enough, "Atomic Healer" features on the official release, but not here). Here's hoping we get an expanded reissue of the score, but until then, »

I have to say that it’s been a particularly great year for film scores. Not only did we see the return of established staples such as John Williams, Danny Elfman, and Thomas Newman, but we were treated to some strong new talent like Dan Romer, Benh Zeitlin and Heather McIntosh. I had a difficult time solidifying this top ten, and an even more impossible time with my top five, of which all could have been my number one. Anyway, enough introduction and here’s my top ten film scores of 2012.
Dan Romer and Benh Zeitlin, also wearing the directorial cap on this picture, teamed up to deliver what I consider to be the best score of the year, brimming with compositions that celebrate the genuine wonder of life while at the same time never losing sight of the »

Few had a better breakout year than Frank Ocean. His album Channel Orange cracked many publications’ “Best of” list, he performed on Saturday Night Live, covered Radiohead and wrote a song for Django Unchained (which ultimately didn’t make the soundtrack, but director Quentin Tarantino called “fantastic”). So what’s left to do in 2013? “I do think – it would be fucking legendary if I just made Channel Orange last year, then put out a best-selling novel next year, then, you know, designed an arena in Stockholm in 2014! I don’t know!” Ocean said in an interview Guardian. The singer facetiously »

• Lincoln gets seven nominations
Steven Spielberg's presidential drama Lincoln leads the field at this year's Golden Globe nominations with seven nods, including best director, best drama and best actor. Ben Affleck's Argo and Quentin Tarantino's much-acclaimed Django Unchained are hot on its heels with five, while Les Miserables, Silver Linings Playbook and Zero Dark Thirty follow with four apiece.
Both Judi Dench and Maggie Smith have acting nods – the former for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which also is up for best comedy or musical; the later for her role in Quartet. Helen Mirren is nominated best actress for Hitchcock, that film's sole mention. »

With all the awards attention that Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty has been getting, it’s rather refreshing to see critics choose different winners for Best Picture. That’s exactly what critics from San Diego and Las Vegas have done, picking Argo and Life of Pi, respectively, as the Best Films of 2012.
Apparently each group Really liked their Best Picture winners. San Diego critics also gave Argo awards for Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Editing. Las Vegas Critics also gave Life of Pi Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Visual Effects, Best Score, and the Youth in Film award.
Could we be seeing the end of Zero Dark Thirty‘s reign already? After the Screen Actors Guild nominations this morning, I’m having doubts about its Best Picture chances. For 17 years, SAG has been giving out its Best Cast in a Motion Picture award, with only one instance »

There are a lot of kids’ tables at the Critics’ Choice Film Awards.
By that, I mean there is literally a children’s category among the contenders — best young actor/actress — which separates Quvenzhané Wallis of Beasts of the Southern Wild, who is also nominated in the overall lead actress category, from her adult peers.
And there are also separate “kids’ table”-type groups for not only comedies (which the Golden Globes does, too) but action and sci-fi/horror movies, which isolates those projects and actors from contention in the traditional, non-genre categories. The group also includes a “best ensemble »
