    That last thread has gotten too long.  The academy announced a number of rule changes this morning, including that the music categories will now have shortlists.  Discuss.

    For the first time, studios, distributors and filmmakers will be required to use an Academy-approved mailing house to send sanctioned awards materials for eligible films to Academy members. Each approved mailing house will be provided with an official list of Academy members who have opted-in along with their contact information to facilitate both physical and digital mailings.

    In addition, the number of post-nominations screenings with a filmmaker Q&A is now limited to a maximum of four regardless of category or country in which the event takes place. This rule eliminates the two additional screenings currently allowed for Documentary and Foreign Language Film nominees.

    The number of eligible producers has been expanded in the animated and documentary feature categories to match those who get included in the Best Picture category.

    There is also a change in submission deadlines. October 1 will be the submissions deadline for the Animated Feature Film, Documentary Feature, Documentary Short Subject, Foreign Language Film, Animated Short Film and Live Action Short Film categories. The deadline for Best Picture and other major category submissions is 5 PM PT Thursday, November 15.

    In the Music categories, all members of the Music Branch will view films eligible for Original Score and film clips of eligible Original Songs and vote in a preliminary round to produce a shortlist of 15 titles in each category using the preferential voting system. Five nominees for Original Score and five nominees for Original Song will then be chosen by branch members in a second round of balloting also using preferential voting.

    In the Documentary Feature category, films that have won a qualifying award at a competitive film festival will be eligible for Academy Awards consideration regardless of any prior public exhibition or distribution by nontheatrical means. The Documentary Feature Qualifying Festival List will be available later this spring. Furthermore, the critic review eligibility requirement has been expanded to include additional New York- and Los Angeles-based publications.

    In a procedural change, members of the Visual Effects Branch Nominating Committee now will be able to stream bake-off reels from the shortlisted films or attend satellite bake-off screenings and vote online. Previously, committee members were only able to vote in person at the Academy’s Visual Effects Bake-off in Los Angeles.

    I’m glad they did this. I’ve thought for long that every category should have a shortlist to ensure visibility.

    Normally, I’d pan people who predict Black Panther, but after Get Out not only got in for BP but also won Original Screenplay & Logan got an Adapted Screenplay nom, I’m starting to less and less doubt its chances.

    Did you really dislike Get Out that much you expected it to be ignored by the Academy?

    I liked Get Out, it was something fresh. I just think it’s extremely overrated. I was hoping honestly for it to get nommed for Original Screenplay, and the fact that it even won blew my mind. But Picture, Director and Actor? Please..

    None of Peele’s nods felt excessive. Actor is the citation I felt was hysteria driven. And winning Original Screenplay isn’t that difficult when you’re the most flamboyant and provocative title in the bunch. Especially when they know that’s your best bet at a win.

    Well, being one of the most successful movies of the year, a Picture nom isn’t that surprising, and Director either, but I’m mad at McDonagh’s snub whose spot was actually taken by Anderon, not Peele, but anyway. The Kaluuya nom is completely laughable and the most ridic nom this year along with Blige.

    McDonagh deserved to be snubbed and the fact that he was replaced by Paul Thomas Anderson made the lineup more refreshing (even with Christopher Nolan in it). Kaluuya being nominated wasn’t “hysteria”, it was expected. He was nominated for a bunch of critics awards and won Boston and National Society (beating their own beloved Daniel Day Lewis). “Hysteria” would be something like Woody Harrelson or Lesley Manville.

    Get Out was decent but quite overrated, though not quite as much as Lady Bird. Peele probably deserved a Director nomination, Gerwig didn’t and that was driven by hysteria and #metoo. McDonagh deserved the Director nod and, in a year where there wasn’t so much political posturing, would surely have won Original Screenplay.

    I liked your comment even though I think Woody Harrelson totally earned his nomination. The only Supporting Actor nominee I didn’t care for was Willem Dafoe “The Florida Project,” I would replace him with Patrick Stewart “Logan” in a heartbeat. Agreed about Manville as well. She was solid and believable in her role, but I don’t think her role will stand the test of time very well. Blige’s nod was a joke from the moment it was announced. I would sooner have nominated Tatiana Maslany “Stronger” and Hong Chau “Downsizing” over those 2 even though both of their movies were box office bombs. Or hell, who would have complained if Betty Gabriel made the cut for “Get Out?” That “No, no, no,” scene would have been a perfect Oscar clip.

    I’ll only buy Black Panther as a serious Oscar contender if it gets Bafta nominated in any category. They hate superhero movies snubbing The Dark Knight for Picture before the Oscars did and snubbing Logan this year for Screenplay. They also hate movies with black people in leading roles. Even 12 Years a Slave lost Adapted Screenplay to Philomena. Get Out wasn’t even nominated for Picture. Barry Jenkins was snubbed for Directing Moonlight, which got shut out in wins at the Baftas. Perhaps most notably, Denzel Washington has never been nominated even once. If Black Panther can wow anti-superhero and generally anti-black Bafta voters with just a nomination in any category, even a tech nod like Costumes, then I will be able to take the BP Oscar buzz with a lesser grain of salt. Too bad Best Actor is looking so crowded this year and Michael B. Jordan has eaten up all the awards buzz for the films great cast, since Chadwick Boseman’s delivery of every line is just so perfect and Letitia Wright was a delight as the brilliant and funny Sister Shuri.
