The Red Carpet Report, Mingle Media TV’s “Oscar Insider” on Best Picture Nominees

In this ongoing series of blog posts, we’ll be sharing the observations of our Entertainment Reporter, Kristyn Burtt, with you between now and the Oscars. We’ll be covering the Oscars from set up to day of at the Kodak Theatre and will be on the red carpet talking to celebrities on the day of the event as well.

Today, we’re looking at Best Picture Nominees that are up for the Oscar – and this is one that we believe will also be the Best Director too. Let us know your thoughts by posting here on our blog.

New rules – each movie had to had 5% of the vote in the #1 slot to be considered for Best Picture. We narrow it down to The Artist or The Help. The Help won big at the SAG Awards but as Kristyn points out the SAG Awards is about acting not that’s not a best picture. We all loved The Artist due to the romance and nostalgia celebrating movies – if you haven’t seen it, there’s still time.

Best Picture Nominees

  • “The Artist” Thomas Langmann, Producer
  • “The Descendants” Jim Burke, Alexander Payne and Jim Taylor, Producers
  • “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close” Scott Rudin, Producer
  • “The Help” Brunson Green, Chris Columbus and Michael Barnathan, Producers
  • “Hugo” Graham King and Martin Scorsese, Producers
  • “Midnight in Paris” Letty Aronson and Stephen Tenenbaum, Producers
  • “Moneyball” Michael De Luca, Rachael Horovitz and Brad Pitt, Producers
  • “The Tree of Life” Nominees to be determined
  • “War Horse” Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy, Producers

The Red Carpet Report, Mingle Media TV’s “Oscar Insider” on Best Original Score and Song Nominees

In this series of blog posts, we’ll be sharing the observations of our Entertainment Reporter, Kristyn Burtt, with you between now and the Oscars. We’ll be covering the Oscars from set up to day of at the Kodak Theatre and will be on the red carpet talking to celebrities on the day of the event as well.

Today, we’re looking at Best Song and Best Original Score that are up for the Oscar – and the controversy that is being talked about this year as it relates to each category and or film. Let us know your thoughts by posting here on our blog.

Music (Original Score)

  • “The Adventures of Tintin” John Williams
  • “The Artist” Ludovic Bource
  • “Hugo” Howard Shore
  • “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” Alberto Iglesias
  • “War Horse” John Williams
One nominee has 47 nominations but not more than Walt Disney who had 59. Who do you think will win?

Music (Original Song)

  • “Man or Muppet” from “The Muppets” Music and Lyric by Bret McKenzie
  • “Real in Rio” from “Rio” Music by Sergio Mendes and Carlinhos Brown Lyric by Siedah Garrett

Why only two nominees? Kristyn will explain.

This is a one film race – which one do you think she’s talking about. Also, what is the controversy surrounding Foreign Film submissions?

Let’s see what else Kristyn has to say:
