The Oscars are a little over two months away, and with so many fantastic films released throughout this year, the anticipation surrounding the announcement of the nominations next month is running on high.
So far, we’ve had the shortlists for the Best Animated Feature, the Best Visual Effects, and the Best Documentary categories.
Now the Academy has announced the list of 104 films that are eligible in the Best Original Score category, and it’s going to be very interesting to see what makes the final cut come nominations time next month.
I think Hans Zimmer’s score for The Dark Knight Rises is, hopefully, a lock, because it is amazing. I also loved James Horner’s score for The Amazing Spider-Man, but can’t decide whether or not I think it will earn a nomination.

As far as I'm concerned, the two most memorable scores of the year belong to Cloud Atlas and Beasts of the Southern Wild. That said, I made an egregious and unforgivable mistake when filling out my Critics' Choice nominations and forgot to include not one of them, but Both of them! Shame. I feel it. Now I have to hope my fellow Bfca members came through where I failed. However, we will discuss Critics' Choice nominations more on the upcoming episodes of the RopeofSilicon podcast, for now we're talking Oscar as the Academy has released a complete list of all 104 original scores competing for Best Original Score at the 2013 Oscars. I have not yet posted my predictions for Best Original Score and while I am making a fuss above concerning Cloud Atlas and Beasts of the Southern Wild, I think both of those stand a very strong chance at a nomination this year. »

With HBO putting Luck out of its misery earlier this year, that leaves one of the series' stars to travel to another cable network for a high profile role. Showtime has announced that Jason Gedrick, who can also be seen in films like Iron Eagle, Promised Land and Backdraft, has landed a multi-episode arc in the forthcoming seventh season of Dexter.

This comes after Ray Stevenson has been cast in a role that will likely turn out to be some sort of adversary for Michael C. Hall as everyone's favorite serial killer. Hopefully this summer we'll find out more about what Dexter will be encountering this season after the conclusion of the sixth season really shook things up between Dexter and his sister Deb, »
