Great Moments in Horror Actressing: Margot Kidder

"This genre gives actresses some really juicy lines and roles,but denies them the acclaim that comes from more 'serious' roles.Kidder was a gifted actress who was indelible in a few films."-Lady Edith

"She won a Genie for it - because Canadians have great taste!"-Mike in Canada

The Film Bitch Awards begin: Score,Song,and Sound

Illustration © Tom Ralston.See more of his workhere.Yes,we're finally starting!Since Oscar nominations are next week,we have to get through the parallel categories quickly,before we can dive into the crazier stuff (which we always have fun doing).First up the five sound categories.A reminder that we have two score categories since there are so many movies each year that rely as much on their soundtracks as their instrumental scores,or use a great deal of pre-existing material within their score.

Onthe sound pagesyou'll find honors forYou Were Never Really Here,Annihilation,Mary Poppins Returns,First Man,Roma,A Star is Bornand more so have a look,won't you?

Final Predictions: Supporting Actress,Foreign Film,and Sound Categories

by Nathaniel R

Expecting a high nomination count for "First Man"even if it misses Best PictureRunning out of time we are!So here are the final predictions for six more categories!

We've been over and over this one in our brains,trying to figure out that fifth spot (we don't believe,as some panicky folks do,that Regina King is in any danger of missing for Beale Street).In the end we're defaulting to Claire Foy inFirst Manwho's been there all along.Primarilybecauseshe's been there all along and these things have a way of sticking if you're considered solidly in for months,even if you start losing steam toward the end of the season.We expectFirst Manto have a high nomination count despite predicting it to miss Best Picture and Claire Foy has remained visible all season.Sorry,Margot Robbie...

Soundtracking: Randy Newman's Original Song Nominations

byChris Feil

Happy 75th Birthday to Randy Newman!

Newman has had an extensive musical career,but in these parts we remember the musician as once one of the most Oscar nominated folks without a win - previously missing out on 14 bids in both Original Song and Original Score before finally winning for 2001'sMonsters Inc.track "If I Didn't Have You".To date,he now has a total twenty nominations and two wins,and isn't slowing down anytime soon.Just last year he delivered some massively underrated work forThe Meyerowitz Storiesand will be returning to theToy Storyfranchise for next year's fourth instalment.

Newman's impact on the movies is one of uplift and charm,and a current mainstay in the Mouse House.But Oscar history is the name of this week's Soundtracking game,solet's rank his Best Original Song nominations...

HMMA Honors "Black Panther"and "A Star is Born"

We're not sure why or how the Hollywood Music in Media Awards came about but they're now in their ninth year honoring musicians in a few buckets worth of categories across all visual media.Their winners are determined by committee and like the NBR,who people tease for divvying up their prizes in a way that insures each studio buys a table at their banquet,there's a little something for everyone.The only multiple winners wereBlack Panther(Original Score -Scifi/Fantasy,Original Song - Scifi/Fantasy & Soundtrack Album),andA Star is Born(Music Supervision & Original Song).

The winners are after the jump though we're not listing the nominees because it's one of those silly awards shows that seems to have no consistency about how many nominees each category is allowed to have.All that said,you might see some of these winners again on the Oscar nomination lists,though...

Middleburg Celebrates Diane Warren with the "Impact Award"

by Nathaniel R

Each year at the Middleburg Film Festival,TFE's favorite event is a live concert honoring a film composer.This yearSheila C Johnson,the co-founder of BET who created the Middleburg Festival opted to do things a bit differently.Though there was a composer honored at a smaller event (29 year-old rising talentKris Bowerswho scored both the likely Oscar smashGreen Bookand the critically acclaimed indieMonsters and Menthis year) the main concert and "Impact Award"was reserved for hit-machine songwriter Diane Warren.

This year Warren co-wrote the much memed "Why'd You Do That?"fromA Star is Bornbut her Oscar bid for 2018 will surely be the theme song from the documentary hitRBG,"I'll Fight"

More after the jump including a couple of song snippets...
