  1. I like all the love for Les Miserables! That's one I really look forward to. I'm guessing you've seen "Keep Smiling" and loved it? Haven't seen much mention of it anywhere else.

    1. I really believe Les Mis can be a hit of this year. There is so much exiting about this movie, explicit cast and beautiful production.

      Yes, I've seen "Keep Smiling" in Georgia and I truly liked it. It's quite strong and touching story-line about the contestants of beauty pageant for mothers, but lacks a lot technical features.

      It could not get much international applause as it was screened only in Germany during Berlinale.

      So my prediction is more hope, maybe it won't make even a short list.

      Thanks for stopping by, actually you are the first to comment here :)

  2. What do you think of the chances for the romantic comedy, "Halloween Party" and its five songs in the Best Original Song category (Voodoo, Eyes, Read The Book, My Mama Warned Me, Monster Party)? See clips here: http://halloweenpartymovie.com/awards/

  3. Hey there,

    I guess, Halloween Party was premiered in 2011 (if you are talking about this one http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1991059/combined )and therefore it is ineligible for this year award.

    But even it was, I don't feel those songs are Oscar type.
