Few Original Song Nominees Come From Best Picture Nominees

4 hours ago | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

On Dec. 12, the Academy released a shortlist of 79 songs in contention for best original song at the 87th Academy Awards, but it’s not so easy to predict which songs will be announced as nominees on Jan. 15. You can’t turn to potential best picture nominees — or best animated features, for that matter — to predict which songs make the final cut. Though a number of best picture nominees have also been nominated for best original song, there’s not much correlation between the two.

The original song category was first introduced at the 7th Annual Academy Awards, and the winner was “The Continental” from 1934’s The Gay Divorcee, also nominated for best picture.

Nineteen of the 80 Oscar-winning songs have come from best picture nominees. They are as follows:

“The Continental” — The Gay Divorcee (1934) “Over the Rainbow” — The Wizard of Oz (1939) “Swinging on a Star” — Going My Way »

'Wild Card' Trailer Starring Jason Statham

12 December 2014 12:19 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

How far would you go for a friend? Nick Wild sets out to prove his loyalty in a domestic trailer for the new action thriller Wild Card, which comes on the heels of two posters and an international trailer. Based on the fan-favorite novel by William Goldman, the film serves as a loose remake of the mostly forgotten 1987 Burt Reynolds' movie Heat, with Jason Statham stepping into replace the Hollywood icon.

Jason Statham is Nick Wild, a Las Vegas bodyguard with lethal professional skills and a personal gambling problem.

New Trailer for Jason Statham's Action Thriller - Wild Card

12 December 2014 12:12 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We've got another action-packed trailer for Jason Statham's upcoming Las Vegas gambling thriller Wild Card. I'm a big fan of the films that Statham makes. Basically, every movie he stars in manages to entertain me. This latest film of his is a remake of a 1987 movie called Heat, which starred Burt Reynolds. I vaguely remember watching that movie, but this one looks like a lot of fun. It was directed by Simon West (The Mechanic and The Expendables 2), and here's the synopsis: 

Nick Wild (Jason Statham) is a Las Vegas bodyguard with lethal professional skills and a personal gambling problem. When a friend is beaten by a sadistic thug, Nick strikes back, only to find out the thug is the son of a powerful mob boss.

'Wild Card' Poster Featuring Jason Statham

11 December 2014 11:06 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Jason Statham is ready to bash skulls in the first official poster for the Lionsgate action thriller Wild Card. Opening in theaters this January, William Goldman adapts his own book for this hard-hitting drama. The story was originally told in the 1987 movie Heat, starring Burt Reynolds, but as you can see, its definitely gotten an upgrade.

Jason Statham stars as Nick Wild, a Las Vegas bodyguard with lethal professional skills and a personal gambling problem. When a friend is beaten by a sadistic thug, Nick strikes back, only to find out the thug is the son of a powerful mob boss.&#160 Suddenly Nick is plunged into the criminal underworld, chased by enforcers and wanted by the mob.&#160&#160 Having raised the stakes, Nick has one last play to change his fortunes...and this time, it's all or nothing.

Watch: International Trailer for 'Wild Card' Starring Jason Statham

2 December 2014 8:54 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Jason Statham is back doing his Jason Statham thing again. Not that I am complaining. I love Statham. He is a dying breed of action star, and even if the movies he is in are terrible, he brings his brand of charisma, toughness, and cool to every role. His latest film is Wild Card (called Joker in other territories), which has a new international trailer for you to watch below. The film, set to be released in theaters and On Demand on January 30th, also stars Stanley Tucci with hair and Sofia Vergara, though she only shows up at the very end of the trailer so I wonder how much she is actually in the film. From the looks of it, Tucci is the villain and Vergara is someone sexy that Statham is drawn towards, not surprising. No, the film does not look very interesting. The January release date leaves a lot to be desired. »

'Wild Card' International Trailer Starring Jason Statham

1 December 2014 12:07 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this morning, the first image debuted from Wild Card, a new action thriller starring Jason Statham. Now, Lionsgate has released the first international trailer for this remake of the 1987 Heat, which starred Burt Reynolds and is based on the William Goldman novel. Also starring Michael Angarano, Milo Ventimiglia and Dominik Garc&#237a-Lorido, the film follows a gambling addicted bodyguard who gets in over his head with the mob.

Jason Statham stars as Nick Wild (Jason Statham), a Las Vegas protector-for-hire with lethal professional skills and a personal gambling problem. When a friend is beaten by a sadistic thug, Nick strikes back, only to find out the thug is the son of a powerful mob boss. Suddenly Nick is plunged into the criminal underworld, chased by enforcers and wanted by the mob.

First Wild Card Image, Poster, and International Trailer for Simon West’s New Action-Thriller Starring Jason Statham and from Screenwriter William Goldman

1 December 2014 11:42 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Along with a U.K. poster and French trailer, Lionsgate has released the first Wild Card image online, and it could easily be from just about any other Jason Statham action-thriller.  That's how much his movies blend together, although this one is particularly amusing in that his character's name is Nick Wild.  That puts it one step above his previous action films that could have been improved by naming the characters Jerry Mechanic, Howard Homefront, Billy Safe, Jack Blitz, and so forth.  In Wild Card, Nick Wild (hoo-boy) is a Las Vegas bodyguard with a gambling addiction and lethal skills, but when he beats a mob boss' son in an act of revenge, he must fight against the criminal underworld. That sounds painfully generic, but here's where it gets interesting: the film pairs Simon West—director of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, The Mechanic, and Stolen among other crappy movies (excluding Con Air)—and William Goldman, »

Watch: Saddle Up With 30 Minute Documentary On The Making Of 'Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid'

29 October 2014 10:03 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

45 years after its release, “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” remains just as vibrant and warm as it was in its original theatrical run. To celebrate its anniversary, here’s a superb half-hour documentary on the making of the film. These days, most behind-the-scenes documentaries have more in common with electronic press kits in which filmmakers and actors diplomatically praise one another via PR speak, hoping to sell their film instead of actually giving a realistic view of filmmaking. What a revelation then that “Butch Cassidy” director George Roy Hill gives an unvarnished look at the making of the classic western. Hill talks about how he approached scheduling the shoot —setting aside an entire week for half a week’s work because he tends to “fuck it up the first week”— and how his star Paul Newman had trouble playing Butch Cassidy the first few days. Newman himself reveals what »

'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid' at 45: Read THR's 1969 Review

26 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Throughout the fall of 1969, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid rolled out in theaters, eventually winning four Oscars and becoming an enduring classic. On Sept. 10 of that year, The Hollywood Reporter appraised the film, cheering its "joyous contemporary spirit" and performances by Paul Newman and Robert Redford. Read the entire review below, which was originally titled "'Sundance' Beams With Joy: A Great & Profitable Film." For an industry whose portion of non-creative, irresponsible agents and system-bound producers have brought it close to collapse by over-pricing familiar failures whose liability to endless productions is the

Interview: Matt Barr on his still-mysterious 'Sleepy Hollow' rogue

20 October 2014 12:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Wilmington, Nc. I sit down with Matt Barr on the "Sleepy Hollow" set in Wilmington, Nc in late August without really knowing much about the actor's character, Noah Hawley.  I know he's got Han Solo rogue swagger and a holstered firearm, but little else. The reports when Barr was cast described his character as a bounty hunter and then he was later described as an arms dealer, two descriptions with a potentially wide gulf between them.  Nearly two months later, I've "acted" in a scene with Barr -- possibly appearing in Episode 8, until they decide to cut me out for reasons that I certainly won't begrudge -- and watched two episodes featuring Hawley and I'm still not sure I know all that much more.  Hawley first popped up in the season's third episode and he returned in the fourth, both times on the trail of the same artifact Crane and Abbie were looking for, »
