Today the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that 241 screenplays (134 original and 107 adapted) are eligible for Best Screenplay nominations and 77 films are eligible for Best Original Score (not including Black Swan, The Fighter or The Kids Are All Right).
Earlier we shared the 248 films eligible for Best Picture. Even though there are great deal of films that were amazing movie going experiences, Academy voters are likely only to concentrate on the films that have garnered awards from other organizations.
Below are the front runners for each of the categories thanks to Awards Daily:
Best Original Screenplay
Lisa Cholodenko, Stuart Blumberg -The Kids Are All Right David Seidler – The King’s Speech Christopher Nolan – Inception Mark Heyman, Andres Heinz, John J. McLaughlin – Black Swan Mike Leigh – Another Year Scott Silver, Paul Tamasy, Eric Johnson – The Fighter Derek Cianfrance – Blue Valentine
Best Adapted Screenplay
We know you were losing sleep over it, so we're happy to be the first to tell you that Furry Vengeance and Yogi Bear are both eligible to be nominated for Best Screenplay Oscars on January 25. Also that Marmaduke score that has been wearing out your iPod? It's eligible too. However, the inclusion of these 2010 masterpieces really isn't that big a surprise. With final nominations just over a month away the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that 241 screenplays - 134 original and 107 adapted - are eligible for a Best Screenplay nomination and that music from 77 films is eligible for Best Original Score (not including Black Swan, The Fighter or The Kids Are All Right ). Add those to the 248 films eligible  for Best Picture and Oscar voters have a lot of work to do in the coming weeks. Kind of. See the full lists, the favorites and read the rules after the jump. »

The AMPAS have named 241 scripts eligible for the Academy Awards — 134 original, 107 adapted. Unlike the WGA, Winter’s Bone, King’s Speech, Toy Story 3, Never Let Me Go, and How to Train Your Dragon will be considered.
The AMPAS have also released the list of nominees for best score. The list was narrowed down to 77 scores, which makes Best Original Score the 2011 Oscar the category with the least number of films under consideration. The scores for Black Swan, True Grit, The Kids Are Alright and The Fighter will not be eligible to compete this year. Clint Mansell‘s Black Swan score and Carter Burwell‘s True Grit score were disqualified attributed to a designation within Rule 16 of the Academy’s Special Rules for Music Awards (5d under “Eligibility”), which excludes “scores diluted by the use of tracked themes or other pre-existing music.” Meanwhile, the scores for The Kids Are All Right, »

There was a minor kerfluffle last night when it was announced only 76 screenplays from 2010 are eligible for the WGA Awards, leaving out such quality films as Toy Story 3, The King's Speech, and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. No need to fret over Oscar consideration: the AMPAS named 241 scripts eligible for the Academy Awards -- 134 original, 107 adapted. The AMPAS is a bit pickier about original scores, though -- Black Swan, True Grit, The Kids Are All Right, and The Fighter were deemed ineligible last week. The list was narrowed down to 77 scores, which makes Best Original Score the 2011 Oscar the category with the least number of films under consideration. Hit the jump to see the full list of films up for the original screenplay, adapted screenplay, and original score categories.

According to /film, Winter’s Bone, King’s Speech, Toy Story 3, Never Let Me Go, and How to Train Your Dragon are ineligible for nominations for the WGA Awards. The Writers Guild of America have just released the list of eligible films, and none of these highly acclaimed films are on the ballot. The guild’s rules restrict nominations to productions that aren’t produced by WGA members or under WGA guidelines. Also not appearing on the ballot is Biutiful, The Ghost Writer, Nowhere Boy, Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World and The Way Back. Here is a full list of films that are eligible.

Hollywoodnews.com: The Writers Guild of America revealed the films that will be eligible for this year’s Writers Guild Awards, and the lists – both Original and Adapted – are noteworthy for the titles that are not in the running.
“Toy Story 3” and “How to Train Your Dragon,” for instance, were declared ineligible. So was “Winter’s Bone” and “The King’s Speech,” believed by many Oscar pundits to be a frontrunner in several categories. They’re not alone. Other titles left out of the running include “Blue Valentine,” “Biutiful,” “Another Year,” “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World,” “Never Let Me Go” and “The Ghost Writer.”
But the screenplay for “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” made the cut. Thank God.
Why are these film scripts ineligible? Steve Pond over at The Wrap explains that they’ve been ostracized “because of guild rules that restrict nominations to films that »

Don't expect to see Winter's Bone, King's Speech, Toy Story 3, Never Let Me Go, and How to Train Your Dragon nominated for the WGA Awards. The Writers Guild of America have revealed the list of eligible films, and none of the previously mentioned highly acclaimed movies/screenplays are on the ballot. Before you get up in arms, you must realize that the guild's rules restrict nominations to productions aren't produced by WGA members or under WGA guidelines. Other films missing from the WGA ballot include Biutiful, The Ghost Writer, Nowhere Boy, Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World and The Way Back. Of the animated feature films, Zack Snyder's Legends of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole passed, while more highly acclaimed movies like Pixar's Toy Story 3 and DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon were deemed ineligible. Last year, several of the high-profile award contenders weren't eligible for WGA Awards, »

To be eligible for the group's annual awards, the Writers Guild of America requires that screenplays be produced under WGA jurisdiction and formally submitted for consideration. This year, 76 films qualified -- 43 original screenplays and 33 adapted. A few of the quality scripts that didn't meet the qualifications: Another Year, Biutiful, Blue Valentine, The Ghost Writer, The King's Speech, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Toy Story 3, Winter's Bone. The WGA winners have been a reliable predictor of the Oscars: the winners have matched up 11 of the last 16 years in both the original and adapted categories. To my eyes, The King's Speech is a lock for a Best Original Screenplay Oscar nomination and the favorite to win. So we'll see how that relationship holds this year. Hit the jump for the full list of eligible screenplays. Via Variety: Original Screenplay All Good Things Black Swan Brooklyn's Finest Burlesque Casino Jack City Island »

With the success of each of their career outside the cable series, they had little time left for other projects. Amanda's film career has taken off quite nicely since landing a main role in the 2008 "Mamma Mia!" while Aaron just Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for "Breaking Bad" this year.
Still, both actors have returned to the show to reprise their roles. Amanda played Bill Paxton and Jeanne Tripplehorn's daughter who disapproved of her family's polygamous beliefs, while Aaron played her boyfriend-turned-husband Scott. They relocated to Portland at the end of season four.
Co-creator Will Scheffer told TV Guide, "Both Amanda and Paul really wanted to be a part of the last episode, even »
They say you can't go home again but apparently "they" haven't seen Big Love.
As reported by TV Guide, Amanda Seyfried and Aaron Paul are returning to the polygamist drama for its series finale, set to air this March. When last we saw eldest daughter Sarah and husband Scott, they were being ushered off to Portland for new job opportunities and the chance to live a "normal" life away from the drama of Bill, Barb, Nicki, and Margene.
I have to say that I like this move by both actors. Too often, when someone starts out on a show, moves on, and gains success, they tend to forget what got them to that point, so for both Seyfried and Paul to be willing to make an appearance says a lot about them. Granted, one episode won't be enough for the two of them to really get into the mix of »

So far I've collected six separate 2010 compilation videos looking back at the this year's collection of films. To the best of my knowledge, these six videos include clips from 303 films and together they total 34:34. I have included the complete list of films on the second page if you are interested. Let me know if I'm missing any, but I think it's pretty safe to say if you liked a film in 2010 one of these following videos will feature it.
So, have a watch and leave your thoughts on which one is your favorite in the comments below and if you find another one online that I should add to the collection shoot me an email.

41 Songs were declared eligible for Oscar's least cinematically relevant prize a short while ago. Wheeee!
We only didn't share them yesterday because every single damn thing happens in the same week. I'd be more excited about this category if recent years hadn't seen the big show trending away from original performers singing their original songs. If I can't see Cher doing her Burlesque number(s) on Oscar night, someone is going down.
The Academy will choose up to 5 of these songs as nominees, depending on how their voting goes. I've included video accompaniment when available - listen (and watch up).
Which are you rooting for?
Please god no. No more honors for this eyesore movie.
oooh, now this is more like it. Sadly, it's only a partial video.

In 2009, THR reports, 274 films were considered eligible for the Best Picture Oscar, but this year that number has dropped just a small amount it seems. Rules state that to make the cut, for the movie award that every film maker dreams of winning, an eligible feature must a) have a running time of over 40 minutes, b) must open in a commercial picture in L.A. County by the stroke of 12am on the 31st of December and run for seven days, and c) must have been shown in theatres on 35mm or 70mm, or in a qualifying digital format. Tough, eh?
With that in mind, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Science announced on Monday the 248 films that are eligible to win.
Prepare for the long list…

Justin Bieber's "Never Say Never" promises to be one of the biggest film events of the early part of 2011, but the 16-year-old Canadian singer could get quite a big boost from another piece of culture that shares the same name. The shortlist for the Academy Award for Best Original Song just got released, and Bieber's "Never Say Never" (his duet with Jaden Smith that was the theme song of the summer smash "The Karate Kid") is on that list.
There are a total of 41 tracks included on the short list, and from that massive batch, as many as five finalists will be named when the rest of the nominations are announced on January 25. It's not a guarantee that Bieber could be nominated for gold, as he is up against favorites like Cher's "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me" (from "Burlesque"), John Legend's "Shine" (from "Waiting for 'Superman' »
