New to the National Film Registry: Brokeback Mountain,Hud, etc...

by Nathaniel R

Each year in the thick of precursor awards season we are momentarily (and pleasantly!) asked to think about the entire history of motion pictures.Each December the Library of Congress adds 25 new movies to their list of American titles worthy of preservation.The criteria is "cultural,historic and aesthetic importance to the nation's film heritage."

The most recent inductee this year is Ang Lee's neo western gay classicBrokeback Mountain(2005) which is about as deserving as titles get for this honor.And we're personally thrilled to see the best movie of 1963,Hud,added.Here's the whole list chronologically...

8 Days Until Oscar.Do "Moonlight"or "Arrival"have Oscar twins from the past?

With 8 days to go until Hollywood's High Holy Night let's compare our two pictures with 8 nominations each this year,Denis Villeneuve's thinky sci-fi drama and Barry Jenkins' ravishing memory/identity drama.While both films might come up empty handed on Oscar night they each have a reasonable shot at one or two statues -- Moonlight could theoretically win Supporting Actor and/or Adapted Screenplay and Arrival's best Oscar shot is probably in one or both of the Sound categories unless it surprises with Adapted Screenplay itself in what could arguably be a five way race if Moonlight is not as strong as pundits suspect there.
