Academy Names 241 Screenplays and 77 Scores Eligible for the Oscar

30 December 2010 12:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

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 [1]). Add those to the 248 films eligible [2] 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 Academy Lists 241 Screenplays and 77 Scores Eligible for the Oscar

30 December 2010 9:28 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

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, »

Film Feature: The 10 Best Films of 2010, Part Two

30 December 2010 5:14 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – On the heels of HollywoodChicago.com’s 10 Best Films of 2010 by Brian Tallerico and Top Overlooked Films of 2010 by Matt Fagerholm, I offer the 10 Best Films of 2010, Part Two, by Patrick McDonald.

It’s hard to compare years. Moods, attitudes and experiences dictates so much of how choices are made, interacting with the particular cinema art of the year. But 2010, with a few exceptions, in general didn’t have the excitement of other years. The risks were less risky, the unusual narratives hard to find. The film business is just that, a business, and with so much changing so fast there will continue be more decisions coming from the marketing department and less from the creative one.

However, the 10 Best moves on, and the list is below. Since I begin with a film nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at last year’s Oscars (but not released in Chicago »

The Academy Names 241 Screenplays and 77 Scores Eligible for the Oscar

29 December 2010 6:05 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

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.

Here’s a look back at the 30 extensive, 1-on-1 interviews — from A(ronofsky) to Z(sigmond) — that I have conducted over the course of the 2010 awards season thus far. I really have to pinch myself when I reflect on just how many wonderful opportunities I have had to speak with the people most responsible for the best films of this year — and many others — and how many more exciting interviews are already being lined up for the coming weeks and months. For now, though, enjoy…

“King’s Speech,” “Toy Story 3″ ruled ineligible for Writers Guild awards

29 December 2010 6:52 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Sean O’Connell

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 »

‘Winter’s Bone,’ ‘King’s Speech’, ‘Toy Story 3?, and ‘Never Let Me Go’ Ineligible for WGA Awards

29 December 2010 6:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

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, »

The WGA Deems 76 Screenplays Eligible for Awards; Rules Out Toy Story 3 and The King’S Speech

28 December 2010 8:36 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

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 3Winter'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.

Strip clubs are where hits are born, reports NPR

28 December 2010 5:10 AM, PST | Nerve | See recent Nerve news »

Struggling musicians, take note — a banknote, preferably — and head to your local strip club, where your years of playing shitty bars will quickly become history. It took none other than an NPR investigation to discover that national musical tastes are being made at regional strip clubs. According to their beat-laden report, Hip-hop producers have been breaking records in Atlanta strip clubs for a long time now — at least as far back as 2003, when Lil Jon was doing it with songs like, "Get Low." He's been quoted as saying "the butts don't lie," meaning if the strippers can dance to it, the song has potential. In Tamara Palmer's book, Country Fried Soul: Adventures in Dirty South Hip Hop, Lil Jon says "Get Low" had a slow start: the dancers "didn't feel it at [...] »

Oscar ballots mailed: Where do things stand?

27 December 2010 11:15 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

The ballots for the 83rd Annual Academy Awards have been mailed today, beginning the all-important three-week-long period before they’re due on Jan. 14. Not much has changed in the past week since my last round of predictions (I am now putting Natalie Portman above Annette Bening for Best Actress, though I think the race is still too close to call). But I have been interested to watch as many of my Oscar-prognosticator colleagues have changed their predicted Best Picture winner from The King's Speech to The Social Network. Several of you have wondered in the comments why I haven’t switched my No. »

Please Note: The following rankings and remarks reflect my personal opinions and do/will not in any way impact my projections or analysis on this site, wherein I strive above all else to correctly forecast what will happen, not what I believe should happen. My demonstrated ability to do that over the years is what has led most of you to my site, and any failure to do that will undoubtedly lead you away from it, so you can rest assured that I mean it when I say that one has/will have no bearing on the other.

1. “The Social Network” (Columbia, 10/1, PG-13, trailer)

Tsr Blog: My nominations in the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards

23 December 2010 9:30 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Let’s go behind the looking glass, shall we? The 16th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards are held January 14, 2011 at the Hollywood Palladium. I will be there. I vote. I am one of the 250 members of the Broadcast Film Critics Association (Bfca). Right now the show is stilling trying to find the perfect host. I hope they go with a classic comedian such as Conan O’Brien or Steven Colbert (yes, those would be Huge names for this awards show). It’d be great to have a stand-up since the Oscars are going with James Franco and Anne Hathaway. Maroon 5 has been named the house band. I’ll be giving you my final ballot as soon as I am allowed to post.

The Complete Collection of 2010 Movie Montage Compilations

22 December 2010 12:50 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

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.

248 Films Eligible for 2010 Best Picture and maybe 10 Deserve It

21 December 2010 8:22 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences have announced that 248 feature films are eligible for best picture at the 2010 Academy Awards. According to THR, 274 films were eligible in 2009, and 281 in 2008. If I had to guess which films will be selected I would have to say Inception, Black Swan, Social Network, King’s Speech, Winter’s Bone, The Fighter, True Grit, 127 Hours, Toy Story 3 and Rabbit Hole.

To make the cut, feature films must open in a commercial motion picture theater in Los Angeles County by midnight, December 31, and begin a minimum run of seven consecutive days.

Under Academy rules, a feature-length motion picture must have a running time of more than 40 minutes and must have been exhibited theatrically on 35mm or 70mm film, or in a qualifying digital format.

248 Films are Eligible for the Best Picture Oscar This Year. “Yogi Bear” is One of Them!

21 December 2010 7:36 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

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…
