Soundtracking: The Grammy Nominees

Chrishere.Soundtracks are rarely awarded prizes as musical entities themselves,so I just had to take the opportunity to dive into this year's Grammy nominees.The Grammy's have an eligibility calendar that is off-kilter to the Oscars,亚博主页so you will find overlap between last year and the current year.Like Oscar past,La La Landdominates,but I suspect won't be asweep here either.This is themusicindustry after all,and Grammy loves firmly established acts even more than Oscar - could this be the chance for Lin Manuel Miranda andMoanato finally get a prize,or even Pharrell Williams forHidden Figures?

Pre-Oscar Show Pt 2: What we're rooting for

Interview: Greig Fraser talks "Lion,"his shifting style,and Jane Campion

Here's one mystery solved: Greig Fraser isn't pronounced any sort of fancy way.It's merely "Greg"with a silent extra "i".If you want to say it perfectly,though,you'll have to say it with an Aussie accent,mate.

We've been singing the praises of the cinematographer Greig Fraser for 8 years now,even if we often pronounced his name wrong while doing so.After the visually jaw-dropping calling card ofBright Star(2009) one of the new century's most undervalued and most transcendentally beautiful movies,his name appeared more and more regularly in major prestige films.Curiously though,despite his ever broadening range (he's aced virtually every genre he's hopped to and front) and quite a few critically lauded and Oscar nominated movies under his belt,he is just now enjoying his very first Oscar nomination for his evocative and resourceful lensing of the Australian hit and Best Picture nomineeLion.

I was eager to talk to him about his ability to tackle any genre,his time with Jane Campion and the challenge of Lion.Here's our interview...

The Last Oscar Week

In this weekly feature fromMurtadawe follow Oscar contender appearances and interviews

The Oscars are just 9 days away so this will be our last Oscar Week column of the season.亚博主页Let's look at how contenders are hustling in Phase 2.In this phase campaigns pivot their messages to try and secure the win.This gives us more pointed and sometimes bold messaging.Like the exploitative use of the Muslim Travel ban byLion.Always happy to see Sonny Pawar's expressive face,but this message is a bit of a stretch.Arrivalis going for the heartstrings,showing Amy Adams hugging Jeremy Renner and talking to her daughter,rather than talking up the sci-fi elements.This is smart messaging since the mother-daughter relationship is what most leave the theater talking about...
