No Brian/Scott.  "Not eligible"

?

Fingers crossed for some acting nods.

I've always thought the Oscar for Best Song is a silly holdover from the days when movie musicals were a big deal. Now the songs just slow down the TV show. 

(PS -- My own lack of interest in the Best Song category isn't meant to detract from what would have been a very exciting development for Brian.)

Anyway, they say "One Kind of Love" was written for the movie, but I don't think it met the other criteria. Based on the Variety review below, the score may not be eligible either (I hope I'm wrong about that).

The rules that were online in April:

A. Original Score: An original score is a substantial body of music that serves as original dramatic underscoring and is written specifically for the motion picture by the submitting composer. 

B. Original Song: An original song consists of words and music, both of which are original and written specifically for the motion picture. There must be a clearly audible, intelligible, substantive rendition (not necessarily visually presented) of both lyric and melody, used in the body of the motion picture or as the first music cue in the end credits.

From Variety:

...the real hero of the below-the-line crew is probably sound mixer Edward Tise, who creates elaborate mosaics of the sounds of silverware on porcelain, or the low thud of music bleeding through a soundproof room. (Indeed, the film’s depictions of drug hallucinations and psychological breakdowns are almost all sonically driven.) Atticus Ross’ haunting score reincorporates snatches of the Beach Boys’ effervescent melodies into something that sounds intriguingly similar to Animal Collective.

That is pretty damn disappointing. Hoping that Dano comes away with something!

The Academy decided that One Kind of Love did not meet the " clearly audible intelligible substantive rendition of both melody and lyrics". Short version ; it was not mixed up front enough in the car scene , the dialogue buried the song in the mix .

So could God Only Knows go in, in its place? 

http://www.thewrap.com/oscars-set-74-eligible-tunes-for-best-original-song/

"Brian Wilson‘s “One Kind of Love” from Beach Boys biopic “Love & Mercy” is ruled ineligible despite Golden Globes nod

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences released the list of 74 works eligible for best original song at the upcoming Academy Awards on Friday.

However, Brian Wilson and Scott Bennett’s “One Kind of Love” from Beach Boys biopic “Love & Mercy” didn’t make cut despite receiving a Golden Globes nomination Thursday.

According to a spokesperson for the Academy, the song was deemed ineligible by the Academy’s Music Branch.

DVDs containing clips of the eligible songs as they are used in their films will be sent to members of the branch, who will vote for their five favorites. The contenders receiving the most votes will make up the nominees, which will be announced on Jan. 14 at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills."

"GOK" isn't original, as in composed expressly for the movie. Which, to the best of my knowledge, "OKOL" was. Not sure what's going on here... most odd.

Ah, that'll teach me to read the preceding threads first. As ever, Ray has the true gen.

The Oscar snub for "Best Song" is no biggie for me. 

Frankly, in recent years, I can't remember any winner - much less any nominees - for that category. Am I the only one? So if part of the prerequisite is being clearly heard during the movie, recent noms and winners haven't left much of a mark IMO compared to some of decades ago.  (Actually OKOL plays clear as day in its entirety during the end credits, but I guess they assume most people have left by then so it doesn't count). 

I've noticed Dano's speaking voice during the movie really matched the actual young BW's pace and rhythm of speech. Apparently, that was from 6 months of listening to him in session tapes or any audio, so PD was seriously doing his homework for the role. If he's not at least nominated for acting, there better be some clock-stoppingly monumental performances that are.

It has to be the first 'music cue' in the end credits, which I was thinking it *is* but then I checked! So, no.

True, it's not one of the really big categories but I guess it would be nice to win it.

And I was goofin', Andrew, on the GOK reference but it is performed exclusively for the film by Paul Dano at least.  Could this scenario happen, that Atticus Ross wins for soundtrack? Brian = shut out!  Again, the overlooks happen with Grammy/Hollywood in Brian's very own backyard.

To me this insanity NOT having One Kind Of Love in consideration.  A fabulous song to begin with and one that FITS the entire story-line and heart of the film!  The more possibility for exposure to the music of Brian Wilson.  The man IS a musical genius (yes he is) after all and the honors need to be bestowed where they need to be. 

Sure, some kind of technicality.  It's IN the film!!!! Hello.

Can anyone find something/somewhere that we can contact the musical elite in H-wood who are sitting on this panel?

Regarding soundtrack - the category is "Best Original Score" and must also be written expressly for the movie. One could argue that a score built on samples is freshly written, but it won't fly. No Love & Mercy music will be eligible, unfortunately.

Good points as usual, Al. 

Even on a bad day, OKOL ain't bad compared to ...uh...this winner from 10 years ago...the rare one I remember well in spite of shock (cough! sputter! what tha..seriously?):





A good list of nominees and winners thru the ages here:

Yeah, that particular winner will be remembered through the centuries, huh?  It does make one want to shrug and not care.

If the leaders of the Academy were of a mind to, they could present quite a montage of Brian's music from famous movies (as well as Love and Mercy) and then give him one of those honorary Oscars. That would be a very nice gesture.
