The ‘Mystery’ of Oscars: Does ‘Call Me by Your Name’ songwriter Sufjan Stevens have a Best Picture advantage?

The ‘Mystery’ of Oscars: Does ‘Call Me by Your Name’ songwriter Sufjan Stevens have a Best Picture advantage?
The current Oscar front-runner for Best Song is “Remember Me” from the Pixar animated film “Coco.” It gets leading odds of 4/9 based on the combined predictions of thousands of users who have made their picks thus far at Gold Derby. However, might we be underestimating Sufjan Stevens‘s “The Mystery of Love” from “Call Me by Your Name”? It ranks third with 16/1 odds despite being the only nominated song from a Best Picture contender. In addition to “Remember Me” it’s up against “This is Me” from “The Greatest Showman,” “Mighty River” from “Mudbound” and “Stand Up for Something” from “Marshall.” But does a Best Picture nomination usually give songwriters an edge?

In the last 30 years there have been 15 times when there was at least one Best Picture nominee in the race for Best Song. Of those 15 instances, a Best Picture nominee won 8 times:

Oscars outrage: Readers were animated over the unjust Best Picture snubs for ‘The Lion King’ & ‘Spirited Away’

Oscars outrage: Readers were animated over the unjust Best Picture snubs for ‘The Lion King’ & ‘Spirited Away’
Animated films are hardly ever nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars. Only three have accomplished the feat: “Beauty and the Beast” (1991), “Up” (2009) and “Toy Story 3” (2010). Of those only “Beauty and the Beast” ever broke through in a field of five Best Picture nominees. That means there have been many, many worthy toons that fell by the wayside, from the first ever animated feature “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” (1937) to the acclaimed Pixar film “Coco” (2017). But when we asked our readers the snubs that outraged them the most were “The Lion King” (1994) and “Spirited Away” (2002).

According to a leading 19% of respondents, “The Lion King” is the snubbed animated film that most deserved a Best Picture bid. And perhaps it came close. It won two Oscars out of four nominations for its music. Hans Zimmer won for his score, and Elton John and Tim Rice won for their original

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle tops $900 million, now Sony’s second biggest movie of all time

Despite competition for tickets ramping up with the release of Marvel’s Black Panther, Sony’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle has hit another box office milestone this weekend as the film passed the $900 million mark worldwide.

Domestically, the Jumanji sequel has now earned $377.6 million, making it Sony’s second-biggest North American release of all time behind 2002’s Spider-Man. Internationally, it has amassed $527 million, for a global haul of $904.6 million. Again, that is second only to Skyfall, which Sony distributed in 2012, with the Bond film earning $1.109 billion worldwide.

Welcome to the Jungle has certainly exceeded all expectations, particularly as it has found itself competing with Star Wars: The Last Jedi throughout its run, and Sony will be hoping for a repeat performance with the sequel, which the studio is fast-tracking for release in 2019.

Good news for ‘This Is Me’: The Globes and Oscars have sung the same tune more often than you might think

Good news for ‘This Is Me’: The Globes and Oscars have sung the same tune more often than you might think
“Remember Me” from “Coco” is the favorite to win the Best Original Song Oscar, but it needs to watch out for “This Is Me” from “The Greatest Showman” — not just because it’s a huge hit and NBC is using it as its Winter Olympics soundtrack, but because it’s the Golden Globe champ. Before you scream “The Globes and Oscars never pick the same song winner!”, know that they have agreed the past three years and their split choices are a relatively new phenomenon.

The Globes gave out its first song award to the title track from “Town Without Pity” (1961) — the Oscars went with “Moon River” from “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” — but didn’t start handing out the prize annually until three years later. The Globes and Oscars matched only once that decade, for “The Windmills of Your Mind” from “The Thomas Crown Affair” (1968).

After Grammys Controversy, Oscar Winners Could Also Lack Female Representation

After Grammys Controversy, Oscar Winners Could Also Lack Female Representation
In “the year of the woman,” gender equality has become as much a focal point in the awards-season discourse as racial diversity. In the wake of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements in particular, the importance of female agency and representation has received a profound spotlight in the entertainment industry.

At the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 7, Natalie Portman called out the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. for its notable lack of female director nominees. A few short weeks later, the Recording Academy found itself in the crosshairs as well, after only one woman, best new artist winner Alessia Cara, received a solo prize on the Jan. 28 Grammys telecast. (Additionally, according to a Variety report, 21-year-old recording artist Lorde was the only album of the year nominee not offered a solo performance spot on the show.)

Recording Academy president Neil Portnow soon after ended up in hot water with ill-worded comments telling women to “step up” if

Oscar Animated Features Use Diverse Tools

Oscar Animated Features Use Diverse Tools
This year’s Academy Award nominees in the animated feature film category take audiences everywhere from Afghanistan to the mind of an infant desperately waging a war against puppies. Here are their stories:

The Boss Baby

Directed by Tom McGrath

Featuring a tour de force vocal performance by Alec Baldwin as a baby who possesses the cunning of an adult paired with the demanding nature of an infant, this CG film from DreamWorks Animation was helmed by Tom McGrath (“Madagascar”) and loosely inspired by the Marla Frazee book.

“I had an older brother so I was really the ‘Boss Baby’ of my family, the one who came in and made all these demands while my older brother had to watch all that attention go to me,” says McGrath. “I don’t think there’s anyone quite like Alec (Baldwin) who could have communicated all those things with his voice because he absolutely wants to give everything to a project

Oscars 2018: Why ‘Remember Me’ from ‘Coco’ Will Win Best Original Song

  • Indiewire
“Remember Me” is unique among the Best Original Song nominees. Its love theme is central to Pixar’s “Coco,” helping pay tribute to Día de los Muertos as a unifying bridge for Mexican families. Sung in two very different styles, however, the song is also very personal to its composers, the Oscar-winning husband and wife team of Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez (“Frozen”).

“It was really healing,” said Anderson-Lopez. “Bobby lost his mom in August and we did an ofrenda [collection of objects] with all of our relatives that we’ve lost in October. We sat around and told stories. It was a different kind of grieving then the kind you do at a funeral because it was joyful. We made it feel like she was with us and all of my relatives.”

Lopez’s mother was fortunate to hear “Remember Me” after it was composed. In fact, it was played at his

Coco Deleted Scenes Reveal Original Opening and New Song
Disney Pixar's Coco will be available on Digital HD and Movies Anywhere on February 13, ahead of the 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On-Demand release on February 27, with the studio unveiling two new deleted scenes. Directors Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina introduce these new scenes, one of which, the directors reveal, was the original opening scene, a musical number that explains the Dia De Los Muertos holiday. The directors go onto say that this was the opening scene for a "number of years" before it was ultimately changed. This scene is set in Mexico City circa 1953.

The second scene, director Adrian Molina explains, is called "Celebrity Tour," which was crafted because they wanted to find a fun way to introduce Hector, the character portrayed by Gael Garcia Bernal, while also establishing the rules of the Land of the Dead. That resulted in this scene, where Molina and Unkrich made Hector a "celebrity tour guide,
