I like to dream big. WOM is through the roof and with no family competition, I expect it to stay in the mid-high teens through New years weekend.With Tangled legs it gets to 285M+ and it has held better than Tangled pretty much throughout it's run. 300M becomes a lock if it drops under 30% this weekend and with the holds it has had this week, I would be shocked if it drops more than 30%. Don't worry you'll come around, when it only drops 15-20% this weekend. ;) :P :)

This weeks holds already makes me believe 300 is in play, though not a lock. Give me another two - three weeks of epic holds and I'll move to 300 as a lock with 350 in play :)

Mess. Frozen isn't part of the 114 movies that are in contention of the Academy's Original Score nominees.

And scores that base the instrumental compositions off of the song music are ineligible. This renders most musicals ineligible since the incidental music is mostly derived from the song music.

Ah. Although I still love the score, especially near the end.

Did they change the rule to that in the early 2000s? I remember in the nineties the renaissance films swept the original score section.

that was the reason why they changed the rule. Alan Menken kept winning them.

It makes some sense. If your score is based on the songs it's not technically "original", is it?

Well I thought Disney would be aware of that rule since they are actually pushing it for Original Score.

Yep. They wanted to open things up a bit. But it also makes sense. If the regular instrumental music is derived from the cues of the songs, then you're really awarding the song music and not anything else.

Interesting list. Disney has Randy Newman in the running for Monsters University and Thomas Newman in the running for Saving Mr. Banks. It's good to see that Saving Mr. Banks had enough of an original score to differentiate itself from the music in Mary Poppins. I remember that there was a concern that the score might have been to similar to Mary Poppins to be eligible. I am glad that isn't the case.

 

Also, good to see that Danny Elfman was on the list for Oz: The Great and Powerful. Hopefully, a few Disney original scores get nominated.

 

Even though Frozen seems to be ineligible, it should be eligible for best original song.

Ah, okay. That makes sense. Now I can focus my bitching on the Academy's "2 songs max per movie" rule for Best Song nominations and the Globes' stupid "A movie can only compete in one of Animation/Comedy/Musical etc." rule. :P

I understood it as the animated movie having to forfeit its chance to compete in the animated movie category in order to compete for one of the Best Film categories and likewise. Like The Wind Rises choosing the Best Foreign Language Film category over Best Animated Film and Frozen choosing Best Animated Film over Best Comedy/Musical. Still dumb as hell though.

However, even if it had been eligible Frozen would not have been nominated given how HFPA only gives nods to pictures that have only slight comedy/musical elements. the nominees this year are indeed amazing films but the category itself doesn't make any sense. I mean, Hustle, Wolf, Llewyn. Nebraska and Her? what's the point of having the category anyway. I would say even This is the End would have fit better.

Yeah, none of the films nominated are a Comedy or a Musical. It is a joke really.

What does one define a comedy as? Is it just having a substantial amount of humor, or should it also mean having a certain thematic lightness? Allegedly the five nominees are much more humorous than the others, so it would be difficult to lump them together with something really heavy like 12 Years a Slave.

yeah it could be true, but for me it looks all kinda random. why is American Hustle or Lllewyn Davis is in comedy/Musical but why not Mr. Banks or Blue Jasmine? think they should just have one big best picture category consists of 10.

For me it would be defined by what section I would find the movie in a video rental store. I don't think any of the 5 films nominated would be in the Comdey section.
