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, »

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.

Box Office Blather: Spectacles, Star Vehicles, Subtitles and Easy $

Year in Review Pt 1 of Many

It's time to wrap up 2010. You'll have to have patience since The Film Experience likes to do this piecemeal... and often! Let's do it every day at 10 Am or 10 Pm or both when we magically have free time. How about that? We'll start with the Us box office.

Box office hits get much coverage in the media so let's just dispense that basic "smash hit" list quick-like and move on to more interesting less covered seat-filler topics. All figures on all lists are up until the December 18th. And please go easy on any errors as I am unskilled at math is not my strong suit.

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…

Robert Pattinson, Reese Witherspoon in first “Water for Elephants” trailer

17 December 2010 11:37 AM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: 20th Century Fox today announced release dates and summaries for its early 2011 slate. In the presser were details about a “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” sequel (yay!), a “Big Momma’s House” sequel (yikes!) and brief plot details on the potential summer blockbusters “X-Men: First Class” and “Rise of the Apes.”

But buried in the middle of the release was a link to a “Water for Elephants” trailer that’s being hosted on Apples movie trailer site. How long has that been up?

“Elephants,” of course, stars Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon in a film adaptation of Sara Gruen’s novel about a veterinary student who joins the circus after his parents are killed.

Watch the trailer here:

Or visit Apple’s site to see it in high definition.

“Elephants,” which is directed by Francis Lawrence, reaches theaters on April 15.

The Year in Film in 6 Minutes

14 December 2010 6:41 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

If you were trapped under a rock this year (it happens) take six minutes to watch this YouTube short. Half music video, half trailer remix, “Filmography 2010″ cuts together the year’s hits, flops and everything in between to catchy music.

Even if you’re a jaded movie buff who hates year end schmaltz, the recap should pluck your heartstrings. So many great and touching moments this year, it’s enough to make you wonder how the Golden Globes managed to totally blow their nominations.

But we digress. Check out the video after the jump.

How many films do you recognize? Below is full list of the films in the order that they appear. Enjoy!

Music:

1. Ratatat – Nostrand

2. Kanye West – Power

Every December these ‘best of the year’ video montages make the last 12 months of cinema seem infinitely more pleasant to sit through than they actually were. Here’s the first of many that are sure to be made before the sand in the hourglass runs out on 2010, this one from a gal going by the name of Gen I, who sent in this effort to /film.

There’s 270 movies in this montage below ranging from all the well known blockbusters, to smaller docs, foreign fare and even some Japanese anime! I can’t begin to imagine how long or how much skill it takes to put something as high-quality as this together…

Full list of the tracks and films shown are below;

Now that we're about two weeks till the end of 2010, the film industry will be looking back to figure out the best movies of the year and will pick winners during the many awards shows. Today, we have a video that captures 2010 pretty well by showing scenes from the year's 270 films, including some that have yet to hit theaters. There will likely be plenty more of these montages in the next few weeks, but the video is definitely one of the better ones that I have seen. Check out the six-minute video below, in addition to a full list of all the films that were used. Questions: How many of the films listed did you actually see in full?

Must Watch: Filmography 2010 – 270 Movies in 6 Minutes

13 December 2010 10:38 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

It's getting closer and closer to the end of the year, and we've already seen a couple top 10 lists and critic choice awards announced. Since we began posting "best of the year" video montages a few years back, it seems a lot of new wannabe video editors have emerged. Maybe the software has become cheaper or more accessible, or maybe the coverage on sites like /Film and other movie blogs garnered interest in the task. Last year I received a dozen or so best of videos, most of them were not anything we would share on the site. I think we posted three in total last year, two of which were created by video editors we've featured in previous years [1]. Today I was sent the first "best of 2010" video montage of the season, from a video editor named Gen I. I'll admit that while I was expecting the worst, I came out pleasantly surprised. »
