Oscars: 75 Songs vie for Best Original Song led by Les Misérables, Ted & Safety Not Guaranteed

13 December 2012 8:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Oscars are almost upon us, and the past few weeks have treated us to the shortlists competing in a number of categories, including Best Animated Feature, Best Visual Effects, Best Documentary, and Best Original Score.

With the nominations announcement creeping ever closer at the start of next month, the Academy have now announced a seventy-five-long list of songs that are eligible in the Best Original Song category.

The list features some absolutely stellar songs that have debuted on the big screen this year, including Adele’s impressive Bond theme, Skyfall.

Tom Hooper’s highly anticipated Les Misérables is also in the running with Suddenly, composed specifically for the film, and it should be great to see how it’s received both by audiences and the Academy in the coming weeks.

We’ve got plenty of choices from animated films in the mix – the animated ones are often the strongest »

Listen Up: Adele, Arcade Fire, Rick Ross Top Massive List of Oscar-Eligible Original Songs

12 December 2012 6:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

In what might be a bit of an over-correction from last year’s two-song race, The Academy has released the largest list of Oscar-eligible original songs in years, topping out at 75 tunes from the movies of the year. Naturally, the big names are there — Adele with “Skyfall” and Arcade Fire with their work on The Hunger Games — but there are also some far out choices like work featured in Death By China and Saint Dracula. With that many songs in the mix, it was bound to be an eclectic group, but even though it’ll be whittled down for the final nominee list announced January 10th, it’s nice for the time being to see “Ladies of Tampa” from Magic Mike right next to “Love Always Comes as a Surprise” from Madagascar 3. Here’s the complete list with a few examples for your listening pleasure: “For You” from Act of Valor “Metaphorical Blanket” from Any Day NowLet It Rain »

Adele's 'Skyfall' theme deemed eligible for original song Oscar

11 December 2012 2:45 PM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

There are 75 original songs that qualify for the Oscar this year, but really everyone has been waiting to hear about one.

Adele’s title theme to Skyfall surged to #1 on iTunes just days after debuting in October, but some feared the number by her and Paul Epworth would be ruled ineligible for the Oscar because it incorporates elements of the classic 007 theme, which of course is not original.

But the music branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences decided it was not a significant enough problem to boot it from the potential nominees, and included it without »

75 Songs Eligible for Best Original Song Oscar Including Adele’s “Skyfall” and Matthew McConaughey’s “Ladies of Tampa”

11 December 2012 1:41 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Just yesterday we got a look at the 104 scores that will be gunning for the Best Original Score Oscar at the upcoming 85th Academy Awards, and today the Academy has unveiled the list of 75 songs that will be competing for the coveted Best Original Song trophy.  While the expected contenders like “Suddenly” from Les Miserables and “Song of the Lonely Mountain” from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey appear, one of the pleasant surprises is Adele’s “Skyfall” from Skyfall. Since Adele’s magnificent Bond track draws a few cues from the franchise’s theme, many assumed that the Academy might rule it ineligible for the Best Original Song trophy.  Not so, it appears, and now it looks like Adele just might land herself an Academy Award to keep those 47 Grammys company.  Also of note, Matthew McConaughey could find himself a Best Original Song nominee for "Ladies of Tampa" from Magic Mike. »

Begin the Campaign for 'Ladies of Tampa' as 75 Songs Compete for Original Song at the 2013 Oscars

11 December 2012 1:29 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I mentioned on today's podcast that my three nominees for Best Original Song for the 2013 Critics' Choice Awards were "100 Black Coffins" from Django Unchained, "Skyfall" from Skyfall and "Ladies of Tampa" from Magic Mike. Of my nominees only "Skyfall" made the official list of nominees, but hopefully the Academy will right a couple of wrongs as both "100 Black Coffins" and Matthew McConaughey's "Ladies of Tampa" are among the 75 songs listed as in contention for a nomination at the 2013 Oscars. The Academy just released the following list of which all voting members of the Music Branch will receive a Reminder List of works submitted in the category and a DVD copy of the song clips. Members will be asked to watch the clips and then vote in the order of their preference for not more than five achievements in the category.

104 Scores in the Race for Best Original Score at the Oscars

11 December 2012 5:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Oscars are a little over two months away, and with so many fantastic films released throughout this year, the anticipation surrounding the announcement of the nominations next month is running on high.

So far, we’ve had the shortlists for the Best Animated Feature, the Best Visual Effects, and the Best Documentary categories.

Now the Academy has announced the list of 104 films that are eligible in the Best Original Score category, and it’s going to be very interesting to see what makes the final cut come nominations time next month.

I think Hans Zimmer’s score for The Dark Knight Rises is, hopefully, a lock, because it is amazing. I also loved James Horner’s score for The Amazing Spider-Man, but can’t decide whether or not I think it will earn a nomination.

Alexandre Desplat has three films in the running this year, with Argo, Rise of the Guardians, »

Some Thoughts on the 104 Original Scores Competing for 2013 Oscar Nominations

10 December 2012 3:37 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As far as I'm concerned, the two most memorable scores of the year belong to Cloud Atlas and Beasts of the Southern Wild. That said, I made an egregious and unforgivable mistake when filling out my Critics' Choice nominations and forgot to include not one of them, but Both of them! Shame. I feel it. Now I have to hope my fellow Bfca members came through where I failed. However, we will discuss Critics' Choice nominations more on the upcoming episodes of the RopeofSilicon podcast, for now we're talking Oscar as the Academy has released a complete list of all 104 original scores competing for Best Original Score at the 2013 Oscars. I have not yet posted my predictions for Best Original Score and while I am making a fuss above concerning Cloud Atlas and Beasts of the Southern Wild, I think both of those stand a very strong chance at a nomination this year. »

104 Scores Advance in Best Original Score Oscar Race

10 December 2012 3:34 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences has narrowed down the Best Original Score race…to 104 entries.  The Academy has shortlisted over 100 scores from 2012 that are eligible to compete for the gold on Oscar night, including three from Alexandre Desplat alone (Argo, Rise of the Guardians, and Zero Dark Thirty).  Every year there are a few scores that are ruled ineligible for one reason or another, and this year those ineligible films include The Bourne Legacy, Moonrise Kingdom, and Rust and Bone. For my money, the standouts of 2012 were Beasts of the Southern Wild, Looper, and The Dark Knight Rises.  I have a feeling Howard Shore’s work on The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will end up being a favorite of mine as well.  Hit the jump to check out the full list of 104 eligible scores, and leave thoughts on your personal favorites from 2012 in the comments section.  The »

Watch: Director and Star of 'Brooklyn Castle' Promote Indie Doc on 'The Daily Show'

9 November 2012 8:25 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

"Brooklyn Castle," the acclaimed documentary revolving around how chess acts as an unlikely inspiration for an inner-city school, found a way to expand on the already positive word of mouth garnered following its October 19th release. Last night the film's director, Katie Dellamaggiore, and one of its stars, Pobo Efekoro, sat down on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" to discuss the film. The appearance of a relatively small documentary on ratings and popularity giant Stewart should go a long way to expanding interest in the film. "Brooklyn Castle," currently in theaters, holds a B+ average on Criticwire. The full interview with Dellamaggiore and Efekoro is below.

Film Review: Charming Doc ‘Brooklyn Castle’ Celebrates Young Chess Champions

2 November 2012 5:51 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – One of the greatest casualties of America’s economic crisis is the extracurricular activities at high schools and middle schools. Whereas the primary subjects fill students’ heads with knowledge, after-school programs provide them with a place to apply it. It’s in the hours following the standard daily curriculum where much of the learning and growing takes place.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

That’s certainly true of the chess team at Brooklyn’s Intermediate School 318. Many of these students live below the poverty line, but their challenging circumstances haven’t prevented their intellects from soaring. Under the tutelage of teacher Elizabeth Spiegel and assistant principal John Galvin, these supremely gifted kids have garnered more championships than any other middle school in the country. At the ages of 11, 12 and 13, these students are routinely demolishing their competition, which includes players in high school.

Brooklyn Castle Movie Review

30 October 2012 4:45 AM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Brooklyn Castle Director: Katie Dellamaggiore An Audience Award winner at this year’s SXSW Film Festival, documentary “Brooklyn Castle” is, in the mold of fellow nonfiction flicks of emotional uplift like “Spellbound,” “Jig” and “Make Believe: The Battle to Become the World’s Best Teen Magician,” a movie about kids reaching for dreams, and discovering the causal relationship between hard work and self-betterment. In this case it’s not spelling, dancing or sleight of hand that’s under the sub-cultural microscope, but instead chess, by way of an influential and successful after-school program at a New York City public school.
