Didn’t think The Painted Bird would make the international list. That is a nice surprise.December 16, 2019 at 3:57 pm #1203240733
So the panel proved my theory that Instinct’s subject matter was far too advanced and evolved for close-minded US audiences. I’m happy Corpus Christi made it though.
For Your Consideration:
Best International Feature: Instinct (The Netherlands)
Best Actress: Carice van Houten (Instinct)December 16, 2019 at 4:06 pm #1203240763
Why doesn’t the Academy reveal the entire list of submissions of the two music categories anymore?December 16, 2019 at 4:38 pm #1203240826
I’m really happy that Us made it onto the Original Score shortlist.December 16, 2019 at 4:39 pm #1203240828
Damn Pain and Glory made into score too! Thats a great category. Too bad it’s gonna be full of no chancers like Marriage Story and Little Women.December 16, 2019 at 4:48 pm #1203240834
I’ve seen two of the Live Action shortlisted films, and while one (MILLER & SON) is fine but fairly predictable, THE NEIGHBORS’ WINDOW is very good. It’s directed by Marshall Curry (three-time nominee in the doc categories–feature & short) and it’s his first fiction film. Really well done and hands-down better than anything in this category last year.December 16, 2019 at 5:34 pm #1203240900

Not completely sure why, but it ended last year when they introduced the shortlists in those categories. Apparently the Music Branch used to go from the submission list straight to the nominations in a single stage; now it’s a two-stage voting process, though only Music Branch members vote in both stages.December 16, 2019 at 5:41 pm #1203240910
how do these work? if a movie comes out after shortlists are announced but in time for eligibility, can they just not be nominated?
If they don’t make the shortlist, they can’t be nominated; it doesn’t matter when the movie is released as long as it’s in the eligibility period (i.e., released in 2018 or 2019 and opened in an LA County theater during 2019). For example, Variety leaked last week that Regina Spektor’s “One Little Soldier” from Bombshell wasn’t submitted for BOS, but made no mention of “Beautiful Ghosts”. Since “Beautiful Ghosts” was a highly anticipated entry in the BOS race but Variety didn’t mention it, more than likely it was submitted but didn’t make the initial cut for the shortlist.December 16, 2019 at 5:46 pm #1203240919
Darlings, Thatcher is happy. Paind and Glory made the shortlists and Cat Swift didn’t. It smells like a good Oscar year, dear citizens.
As a famous singer said, "ain't nobody gonna Thatcher, Thatcher, Thatcher!"December 16, 2019 at 6:18 pm #1203240980
HELL YESSS and Us qualifies for Original Song. HELLLLLL YESSSSSS!!! I hope it takes it.
Here’s my guesses:
Honeyland, North Macedonia
Les Miserables, France
Pain and Glory, Spain
Parasite, South Korea
Frozen II, Into the Unknown
Harriet, Stand Up
Parasite, A Glass of Soju
Rocketman, Love Me Again
The Lion King, Spirit
Dolemite is My Name
Alita: Battle Angel
The Lion King
My opinions will change but all I care about is Avengers: Endgame, Us and Parasite!!! And, I watched The King and I thought its music was excellent (but I don’t really care if it makes it or not).
I just love movies. And awards.December 16, 2019 at 7:03 pm #1203241045
The Biggest Little Farm
The Edge of Democracy

I wonder if the Aretha Franklin documentary Amazing Grace was even submitted.
