Sing me a song: 75 songs on the Best Song longlist

Yesterday, AMPAS released the list of 75 songs that are eligible this year for the Oscars. Notable absence: “Please Mr. Kennedy”, from Inside Llewyn Davis, which was deemed ineligible because it was seen as too much of an hommage to a Micky Wood song with the same title. Check for yourself if your favorite songs are still in the running. …

Critics’ choices or Oscar predictions? BFCA announces nominations

“The single most accurate precursor to the Oscars….“. If ever it was more blatantly clear what the Broadcast Film Critics Association is actually trying to do each year, it was today when they made their nominations for the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards public.

Critics Societies Roundup 3

Another day, another roundup of critics organizations. First, the San Francisco Critics Circle chose their winners (updated list to be found here). Then we have the Kansas City Film Critics Circle, which can sometimes surprise with some cool, leftfield picks.

Can you shorten it a little: Makeup & Haistyling shortlist announced

After today, there are only seven hopefuls left for winning the Oscar for Best Makeup & Hairstyling, as the shortlist in this category was announced today.
