Oscar Race: 241 Screenplays & 77 Scores Eligible For Oscars

Today the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced that 241 screenplays (134 original and 107 adapted) are eligible for Best Screenplay nominations and 77 films are eligible for Best Original Score (not including Black Swan, The Fighter or The Kids Are All Right).

Earlier we shared the 248 films eligible for Best Picture. Even though there are great deal of films that were amazing movie going experiences, Academy voters are likely only to concentrate on the films that have garnered awards from other organizations.

Below are the front runners for each of the categories thanks to Awards Daily:

The Academy Lists 241 Screenplays and 77 Scores Eligible for the Oscar

The AMPAS have named 241 scripts eligible for the Academy Awards — 134 original, 107 adapted. Unlike the WGA, Winter’s Bone, King’s Speech, Toy Story 3, Never Let Me Go, and How to Train Your Dragon will be considered.

The AMPAS have also released the list of nominees for best score. The list was narrowed down to 77 scores, which makes Best Original Score the 2011 Oscar the category with the least number of films under consideration. The scores for Black Swan, True Grit, The Kids Are Alright and The Fighter will not be eligible to compete this year. Clint Mansell‘s Black Swan score and Carter Burwell‘s True Grit score were disqualified attributed to a designation within Rule 16 of the Academy’s Special Rules for Music Awards (5d under “Eligibility”), which excludes “scores diluted by the use of tracked themes or other pre-existing music.” Meanwhile, the scores for The Kids Are All Right,

The Academy Names 241 Screenplays and 77 Scores Eligible for the Oscar

There was a minor kerfluffle last night when it was announced only 76 screenplays from 2010 are eligible for the WGA Awards, leaving out such quality films as Toy Story 3, The King's Speech, and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.  No need to fret over Oscar consideration: the AMPAS named 241 scripts eligible for the Academy Awards -- 134 original, 107 adapted. The AMPAS is a bit pickier about original scores, though -- Black Swan, True Grit, The Kids Are All Right, and The Fighter were deemed ineligible last week.  The list was narrowed down to 77 scores, which makes Best Original Score the 2011 Oscar the category with the least number of films under consideration.  Hit the jump to see the full list of films up for the original screenplay, adapted screenplay, and original score categories.

The Complete Collection of 2010 Movie Montage Compilations

So far I've collected six separate 2010 compilation videos looking back at the this year's collection of films. To the best of my knowledge, these six videos include clips from 303 films and together they total 34:34. I have included the complete list of films on the second page if you are interested. Let me know if I'm missing any, but I think it's pretty safe to say if you liked a film in 2010 one of these following videos will feature it.

So, have a watch and leave your thoughts on which one is your favorite in the comments below and if you find another one online that I should add to the collection shoot me an email.

248 Films Eligible for 2010 Best Picture and maybe 10 Deserve It

The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences have announced that 248 feature films are eligible for best picture at the 2010 Academy Awards. According to THR, 274 films were eligible in 2009, and 281 in 2008. If I had to guess which films will be selected I would have to say Inception, Black Swan, Social Network, King’s Speech, Winter’s Bone, The Fighter, True Grit, 127 Hours, Toy Story 3 and Rabbit Hole.

To make the cut, feature films must open in a commercial motion picture theater in Los Angeles County by midnight, December 31, and begin a minimum run of seven consecutive days.

Under Academy rules, a feature-length motion picture must have a running time of more than 40 minutes and must have been exhibited theatrically on 35mm or 70mm film, or in a qualifying digital format.

248 Films are Eligible for the Best Picture Oscar This Year. “Yogi Bear” is One of Them!

In 2009, THR reports, 274 films were considered eligible for the Best Picture Oscar, but this year that number has dropped just a small amount it seems. Rules state that to make the cut, for the movie award that every film maker dreams of winning, an eligible feature must a) have a running time of over 40 minutes, b) must open in a commercial picture in L.A. County by the stroke of 12am on the 31st of December and run for seven days, and c) must have been shown in theatres on 35mm or 70mm, or in a qualifying digital format. Tough, eh?

With that in mind, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Science announced on Monday the 248 films that are eligible to win.

Prepare for the long list…

There’s 270 movies in this montage below ranging from all the well known blockbusters, to smaller docs, foreign fare and even some Japanese anime! I can’t begin to imagine how long or how much skill it takes to put something as high-quality as this together…

Must Watch: Filmography 2010 – 270 Movies in 6 Minutes
It's getting closer and closer to the end of the year, and we've already seen a couple top 10 lists and critic choice awards announced. Since we began posting "best of the year" video montages a few years back, it seems a lot of new wannabe video editors have emerged. Maybe the software has become cheaper or more accessible, or maybe the coverage on sites like /Film and other movie blogs garnered interest in the task. Last year I received a dozen or so best of videos, most of them were not anything we would share on the site. I think we posted three in total last year, two of which were created by video editors we've featured in previous years [1]. Today I was sent the first "best of 2010" video montage of the season, from a video editor named Gen I. I'll admit that while I was expecting the worst, I came out pleasantly surprised.
