I know they just announced the shortlists, but does anybody have the full list of eligible songs and scores for the Oscars for this year? I can’t seem to find a press release, and most of the articles I can find on the subject don’t make not of the entire lists, and I’m finding that a little frustrating.December 22, 2021 at 5:16 am #1204673266

Longlists aren’t offered by the Academy anymore, David. All we have to work with now are the shortlists.December 22, 2021 at 10:01 am #1204673826
Presumably there was some list of all eligible scores and songs made available to the music branch, but I don’t believe it’s been released to the press ever since this category started doing shortlists.December 22, 2021 at 12:00 pm #1204674119
I think having a big name like Beyonce could be a benefit for the Oscars. She may be the winner fir Original Song.December 22, 2021 at 1:44 pm #1204674364
That Billie eilish song is pretty shite. Somebody compared it to Shirley bassey and I want to slap them!
Who thinks Adam driver and Marion cotillard would actually perform their song live? 😅December 22, 2021 at 1:44 pm #1204674366
Ariana’s song is bad too. There is no hook at all.December 22, 2021 at 1:48 pm #1204674368
OK I just listened to Beyonce song and while it’s not fit to kiss Shallow’s shoe there is a bit more life and catchiness to it. But her fans mustn’t like it very much. It only has 2 million views after a month… For a Beyonce song that’s pretty bad right?December 22, 2021 at 1:49 pm #1204674375
If Top Gun wasn’t postponed to next summer Gaga would have destroyed all of these songsDecember 22, 2021 at 1:54 pm #1204674391
Thank God there is a thread for this here lol. It was only at the Music forums for a while.
I miss the longlists. Helped a lot in 2011 when I didn’t remember most of the Songs that came out.
Really a fan of an original song that adds to the movie and Be Alive playing over a montage of the Williams’ achievements is perfect.
No Time to Die
Guns Go Bang
Just Look Up
I just love movies. And awards.December 22, 2021 at 2:23 pm #1204674464
Billie’s song is great, I believe she wins easily. and in score, I beg Dune, that’s fantastic.December 22, 2021 at 3:55 pm #1204674594
“Here I Am (Singing My Way Home)”
“No Time to Die”
“Somehow You Do”December 22, 2021 at 4:03 pm #1204674600
1. Don’t Look Up, “Just Look Up” (no hook? You are kidding me! This song is BRILLIANT!)
2. Encanto, “Dos Oruguitas” (so heartfelt and beautiful).
3. No Time To Die, “No Time To Die” (not as good as “Skyfall” or “The Writing’s On The Wall” but excellent in its own way)
4. Belfast, “Down To Joy” (a joyful song from a wonderful film. Morrison’s music isn’t original outside of this song but it adds up to a brilliant score)
5. Respect, “Here I Am (Singing My Way Home)” (Jennifer Hudson and Carole King pay their respects to the Queen of Soul with this beautiful song)December 25, 2021 at 6:39 am #1204678295
Longlists aren’t offered by the Academy anymore, David. All we have to work with now are the shortlists.
Variety claimed to have leaks of the music longlists the last two years, though they didn’t fully disclose either one; there were surprises on last year’s longlist but not this year’s. The biggest thing this year’s leak did was shoot down my uncertainty (expressed in the Music forum thread) as to whether or not “Down to Joy” would meet the originality requirement. The leaks also proved that songwriter names are NOT on the lists used during shortlist & nomination balloting, though we all know voters find those names anyway (as proven by Diane Warren’s stack of nominations).
Still, you’re right: The longlists for both music categories are now Music Branch secrets; only the 15-song shortlist is made public. Took a lot of the fun out of predicting BOS, but this year the fun seems to be guessing which big names on the shortlist will & won’t join Billie Eilish (the odds-on BOS favorite ever since NTTD was delayed to this year, and last year’s favorite before that) among the nominees.Not now
