    God no. Her Judas song was so fucking boring to listen to and was the most uninspired best original song win I’ve ever seen.

    Uninspired? Songs like that usually don’t get nominated, let alone win the Oscar. I thought her song was good….very Curtis Mayfield.

    And it was MUCH better than Elton John’s recent Oscar winning song.

    He’s a Producer on this film, Yes he still involved. The did’nt mention him in the article about the casting though so im not sure how involved he’s been.

    Is Quincy Jones involved with this movie? Because I would much rather have him and Fantasia cook something up than hear another H.E.R creation.

    Yes and he did Nightmare Alley which is likely to get nominated in Cinematography this year. I watched that movie two days ago to get a feel for his work and it was fantastic. I am very excited about his involvement.

    I think its going to be visually STUNNING. The cinematographer is
    Dan Laustsen (The Shape of Water)

    I loved Elton’s song. And I’m not an Elton fan. All his music that I’ve heard was from the movie Rocketman but I genuinely loved listening to the song. Amd even though I would have loved for Cynthia Erivo’s Harriet song to win, I get why he won because Elton’s song was actually sung in the movie by an actor in character and the song was instrumental in the plot and character development of the Elton character.

    But in the case of the H.E.R. Judas song, it was just as bad in my ears as Andra Day’s Billie Holiday song which was rightfully snubbed. Both songs might have had creative lyrics with deep meanings. But if your song is just unlistenable, it’s a bad song.

    Hoping he is involved fully and wins either Picture, Score or Song for this. He’d would be the 17th person to win a competitive EGOT.

    I really think this is going to be a big Oscar vehicle.

    I think Dan Lausten is the perfect choice for cinematographer. His involvement makes me even more excited about this movie.

    Fantasia just Said:

    She was contacted by the producer (Oprah and Scott sanders) and asked to audition for the role of Celie. She originally said she didn’t want to audition but they called back to which she agreed after being encouraged by her husband.

    She had multiple auditions and there was other actresses being considered.

    I agree, He was the perfect choice and he works well with Paul Austerberry who is doing the production design (The both worked on shape of Water). Also Dan is having a moment right now, his last few projects have been fantastic.

    I think Dan Lausten is the perfect choice for cinematographer. His involvement makes me even more excited about this movie.

    This will probably be next year’s Oscar contender.

    They should consider
    Anika Noni Rose as Adult Nettie
    And Trinitee Stokes as Young Celie.
