The Hobbit Movie – Behind The Scenes Look At Creating The Music With Howard Shore

11 December 2012 4:16 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Over the past two days The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences listed both the score and song from Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey as eligible for nominations in both the Best Score and Best Original Song categories for the 85th Academy Awards in February. I can’t even begin to fathom any of the movies in the Lord of the Rings trilogy without the soaring soulful works of Howard Shore. It undoubtedly stands as his most towering achievement to date. He won three Academy Awards® for his music for those films, two for Best Original Score, and one for Best Original Song. Shore has also won numerous other honors for his film work, including four Grammys and three Golden Globe Awards.

WaterTower Music has released The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Original Motion Picture Soundtrack today and once again composer Shore’s score is a triumph. »

An Early Look at 2013 Oscar Contenders

27 February 2012 11:00 AM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

It's almost hard to believe, but with the conclusion of Sunday's Academy Awards, this year's awards race is now officially over -- and the race to the 2013 Oscars has officially begin.

While it's obviously premature to guess who will be walking up to the podium next year to accept their golden man, we figured you'd like an idea of the likely contenders. If these films we've assembled as our early (way early) 2013 Oscar predictions are anything to go by, next year's race promises to be a solid one. Bring them on!

While his acting career has yet to peak, Ben Affleck's directorial career is flourishing. His last two films, "Gone Baby Gone" and "The Town," were critical darlings that each garnered Academy Award nominations, so expectations are riding high on his next one, "Argo," to deliver.

And The Oscar Goes To ... Someone Who Didn't Deserve It.

23 February 2012 11:59 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

It still provides a chuckle

The history of The Academy Awards is littered with strange and inexplicable happenings: Revealed shortcomings, spontaneous pushups, "The winner is Paul Newman," Sandahl Bergman's interpretive dance to "Eye Of The Tiger" (admittedly, one of the highlights of my life).

And of course ... Snow White rolling on the river.

But aside from the odd ceremony moments, and the fashion drama on the red carpet, it's the Oscar errors in judgment that we remember the most.

A few weeks ago we discussed the Oscar nomination Sins Of Omission, so let's now take a look at the performers who actually won, and how The Academy still blew it.

The 2005 nominees for Best Actor were:

Philip Seymour Hoffman in Capote

Heath Ledger in Brokeback Mountain

David Strathairn in Good Night and Good Luck

Terrence Howard in Hustle & Flow

Joaquin Phoenix in Walk The Line
