There was a period of time in the early 00s when it seemed like every other alt rock song had either that abrupt change mid-song (think Broken by Seether/Amy Lee or Lifehouse’s Everything,) or a dramatic crescendo at the bridge (Coldplay with Fix You or the Goo Goo Dolls in Better Days.)
It was kind of cheesy, but I still sort of miss it.July 25, 2021 at 4:32 pm #1204362613
Don’t they need a theatrical release of at least one week for the movie to be eligible…I don’t think this movie is in contention
The Academy is making an exception this year. Due to the pandemic, films that premiere solely on streaming are still eligible for Oscars in the 2021 season. They had the same rule last year, but it should be back to normal next season.June 1, 2021 at 5:14 pm #1204282639
I apologize if this has been asked before, but is there any chance the “Save You Tears” remix is eligible for Pop Duo/Group? I realize that Abel won’y submit it, but could Ariana?May 28, 2021 at 6:16 pm #1204277211
With the Olympics and Super Bowl taking up space in February, I figured the Oscars wouldn’t be on until March next year, though it’s maybe a week or two later than expected?
Not the worst idea to give voters and few more weeks to see films, though.
Do we think they’ll push the Critics Choice back a few weeks? Not sure how much of a precursor they’ll be if they’re on 2 1/2 months prior to the Oscars.March 11, 2021 at 1:14 am #1204106858
Harry is absolutely deserving of a win. He was unfortunate that Fine Line hadn’t yet really hit it big in time for last year’s voting period and as such, didn’t really have a chance against other celebrated projects.
And to be honest, the BRITs are in need of some star power this year. With COVID likely keeping many international artists at bay (presuming they want a live show, which isn’t guaranteed,) they need big name domestic artists to keep the ratings solid. Dua is great, but she needs company and it wouldn’t be any easy task to convince the likes of Lewis Capaldi/Stormzy/Ed Sheeran/Harry to all perform if the only thing they’re eligible for is British Song (which obviously they can’t all win at the same time.)
Just look at what the top 10 biggest albums in the UK were last year.
1 – Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent/LEWIS CAPALDI
2 – Fine Line/HARRY STYLES
3 – Future Nostalgia/DUA LIPA*
4 – When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go/BILLIE EILISH
5 – Heavy is the Head/STORMZY
6 – Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon/POP SMOKE
7 – NO 6 Collaborations Project/ED SHEERAN
8 – Greatest Hits/QUEEN
9 – Diamonds/ELTON JOHN
10 – 50 Years- Don’t Stop/FLEETWOOD MAC
Loads of British talent, but unless I’m mistaken, Dua is the only one eligible for British Album of the Year.
No disrespect meant to the other artists, of course, as there is plenty of deserving talent out thereMarch 11, 2021 at 12:38 am #1204106802

LOL to the Brits for pulling their usual shenanigans and starting the eligibility window on December 13th so that Harry and Stormzy can be nominated for British Male Solo again. I’m presuming Harry wins this time around since Stormzy won it last year.
RIP to everyone else who temporarily thought they had a chance.February 25, 2021 at 9:26 pm #1204062169
The Art Directors Guild 2021 Nominations came out this morning and Cardigan was recognized. This is a pretty big deal as it’s a pretty prestigious award. Taylor’s team has two previous ADG nominations, which both came last year for the Lover music video in the Short Format category and for the Reputation Stadium Tour in the Variety, Reality, or Competition Series category. Neither won.
SHORT FORMAT: WEB SERIES, MUSIC VIDEO OR COMMERCIAL
Adidas Originals: “Superstar – Change is a Team Sport”
Production Designer: Ruth De Jong
Apple: “Vertical Cinema”
Production Designer: Shane Valentino
Camila Cabello: “My Oh My”
Production Designer: François Audouy
Harry Styles: “Falling”
Production Designer: François Audouy
Taylor Swift: “Cardigan”
Production Designer: Ethan Tobman
I don’t know how realistic Ethan’s chances are at the win as the other three are probably bigger names. Shane Valentino is also nominated in the big category of the night (Period Feature Film) so that may give him the edge. Personally, I’d give it to the “Falling” video as I think the art direction was the real star of that video, but I’m not really an expert in this field.January 27, 2021 at 6:52 am #1204004721
I wouldn’t read too much into films being pushed to the fall this year. Normally a move to October/November indicates an awards push, but over the past few weeks there has been a mass exodus of films (of all genres and budget) from the spring/summer, covering just about every major studio. By next week, there may be even more changes, especially since we haven’t really heard from Disney yet.
It’s clear that many studios aren’t confident in the spring/summer box office, so who knows who many of the current predicted awards favourites will actually come out in 2021.January 26, 2021 at 7:34 am #1204002339
Best First Feature
“I Carry You With Me”
“The 40 Year Old Version”
“The Sound of Metal”
Stellar list above. Maybe my favourite category of the morning.January 26, 2021 at 7:30 am #1204002311
It got a nomination for First Screenplay, but seems to have been snubbed in all other categories. What about One Night in Miami? Does winning the Robert Altman and John Cassavetes awards mean that it wasn’t eligible elsewhere? Because it didn’t win anywhere else.

Was Palm Springs ineligible?

Black and White cinematography used to be pretty rare in modern filmmaking (see: Schindler’s List/Sin City,) but ever since The Artist rocked up to the party and won a bunch of statues it’s been a feeding frenzy. At the time, I figured it would be a one-off for the sake of “old-times,” but then Nebraska jumped on the wagon a few months later and it’s been pretty consistent ever since.December 23, 2020 at 9:52 pm #1203943026
What do we think of “Afterglow” and Ed Sheeran’s chances? I know that it’s not an album single and Ed’s not always a grammy favourite, but his slower guitar-driven ballads seem to carry better with voters than his albums have.
Or is it just not hitting with the GP?
