For Your Consideration Episode III Ads
December 06, 2005

As the year winds down, the motion picture industry takes stock of the acclaimed movies produced over the previous 12 months. With an eye towards next year's announcement of Academy Award nominees, studios often take out captivating full-page advertisements in trade publications to remind Academy voters of cinematic achievements worth considering.

Lucasfilm has begun placing "For Your Consideration" ads for Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. Here is a sampling of ads, highlighting the contributions of the cast and crew of the final Star Wars movie. They will appear in trade publications such as Variety, Hollywood Reporter, and Cinefex. Some ads cover multiple categories, but the accomplishments in four categories have been singled out with individual ads: Best Costume Design (Trisha Biggar), Best Visual Effects (John Knoll, Roger Guyett, Rob Coleman and Brian Gernand), Best Makeup (Dave Elsey, Lou Elsey and Nikki Gooley) and Best Supporting Actor (Ian McDiarmid).

Next week, Hollywood Reporter will feature a five-page For Your Consideration ad that begins with an imposing full-page image of Darth Vader, complete with voice chip that recreates the eerie rasping breathing sound of the Dark Lord. Check your local newsstand that carries the Hollywood Reporter on December 13th.

Some great images in there.

They seem to be pushing McDiarmid hard. He's really the only actor with a reasonable chance of getting a nomination, and as much as he deserves it, it's extremely unlikely at best. Ewan likewise deserves consideration but won't even have a chance.

Costumes, Makeup, FX, we should sweep those, but the Academy has really been dickheads to GL during the prequels.

This the first time they've done a big Oscar push for one of the prequels?

It'd be a joke for ROTS to not be recognized for the visual fx, music, makeup and costume designs.

Agreed, but then again you could argue that for the past two Episodes. And since Episode III may be the first chance the prequels have of getting recognition via the aesthetics and technical aspects, McDiarmid doesn't got a shot IMO. Which is a shame, but it's a long shot for him to even get nominated.

They have really gotten the shaft thus far. TPM was the most groundbreaking in terms of effects of all the 3, and it lost out to Matrix, which had horribly shoddy CG and only won b/c it managed to advance a technique ripped from Gap commercials. A technique which, by the way, was supposedly going to have some grand effect on filmmaking, but aside from Charlie's Angels, has made no impact on film....

So, what does the Academy know anyway!!

With Kong, you can forget ILM winning the Visual Effects award this year eventhough they deserve it for Episode III or War of the Worlds.

From reports, while Kong is great most of the time, the compositing is pretty shoddy throughout the film and the dinosaurs are good but not Jurassic good.

Either way, the Academy is on the PJ bandwagon and you can forget Episode III winning the Visual Effects Award. From '99 to this year, ILM has done marvelous work and yet have nothing to show for it. Here are my highlights from these six years:

Episode I
Episode II
Episode III
Minority Report
War of the Worlds
A.I.
Hulk
Pearl Harbor

Also, it would be a crime against humanity if Trisha Biggar didn't finally win for Costumes. It's long, long, long overdue.

You're gonna get a couple nods - probably VFX, Sound, Sound Editing and one or two others...but I don't expect for it to win anything.

Who cares.

Well ROTS the score anyways is amongst the ones being nominated for best score. Also for one of the best musical compisitions being selected is from ROTS is "Anakin's Betrayal".

So here's hoping ROTS wins either best score or best musical compisition.

seriously I don't understand why Ian wouldn't have a good shot, even a great shot but I agree with all of you that he won't. Really is a shame, the guy friggin did a tremendous job.

Obviously Hayden's performance wasn't Oscar worthy, but I thought he did a really good job and can't imagine someone else as Anakin.

Ewan and Ian both in an ideal world had realistic shots at supporting actor, particularly Ian. Ewan obviously has no shot in the real world.

Who is Ian up against? I don't really watch the Pre-Packaged Made for Oscar Million Dollar Baby Beautiful Mind etc. crap. Any asshole can make a movie like that. People can call Star Wars "commercial" or "popcorn" all they want, but the type of movies that win Oscars these days are seriously garbage.

I was going to say, RotS has no more recurring themes than RotK had. Though as always, its about the anti-SW bias with this stuff.

I dont think any actors/directors/editors from RotS deserve much. It'd be nice for Ewan to win something, but it wont be an Oscar, thats for sure.

Where RotS deserves to win is categories like score (which wont be allowed), visual effects, costuming, makeup. But I dont even see them getting the nod for these, given the strong bias in the academy.

ROTS has some though competition for a nomination for the visual effects Oscar. I could easily see it being left out of the final three.

[hr]
Seven to compete for visual efffects Oscar

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Dec. 16 (UPI) -- "Batman Begins" and "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" are among seven films that will compete this year for the visual effects Academy Award.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced in Beverly Hills, Calif., Friday that those films -- as well as "Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith"; "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"; "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe"; "King Kong" and "War of the Worlds" will receive Oscar consideration.

The Visual Effects Award Nominating Committee will screen clips from the films Jan. 25, and then choose three nominees for the 78th Academy Awards.

Oscar nominations will be announced Jan. 31, with the awards gala scheduled for March 5, 2006, at the Hollywood Kodak Theatre. ABC will televise the ceremony live.

King Kong had a weak opening two days. I guess we won't really know how it is doing till this weekend. Fact of the matter is, I think Jackson has severely overrated the material in King Kong, and I can't see it catching on with a mass audience. I also think Jackson is overrated himself. Lucas is actually a better director, at least in terms of the more filmic issues, and Jackson pretty much just rode Tolkien's material to awards.

Here's hoping Kong flops because I'm bitter like that.

I would be really disappointed if Star Wars didn't pick up an Oscar for best costumes. I think for all three films they have been seriously overlooked for costume - some of Padme's garments are simply stunning.

As for Acting - please don't make me laugh.

McDiarmid is the only one with a shot at an acting nomination, albeit a very, VERY long one.

Trisha Beggar's work being overlooked so far has been a travesty, IMHO. I hope the Academy gives her a nod to recognize her work over the whole trilogy.

What do you guys think about the visual effects award? I'm starting to believe the prequels are going to by without a single win in that department, which is mindblowing. If you would have told me back in '98 that no prequel was going to win a visual effects Oscar, i would have laughed at your face.

Honestly, those ads are pretty fucking hilarious! Best Picture? Best Director? Best Screenplay?!? Best Actress Natalie Portman!!??! You've got to be fucking kidding me!

It'll be lucky if it gets a nod in anything other than the VFX category... and I bet the the little gold guy will go to KONG. If ILM wins it'll be for WAR OF THE WORLDS not ROTS. At least that's the way it should be...

I am not sure about visuals. I am not a fan of the visuals in the PT. Yes, they are cutting edge, but the look FAKE. C'mon, half the time in EpIII I thought I was watching a computer game. I know WETA isn't up to speed, but so far, everything I have seen of Narnia and Lord of the Rings was much more believable - it LOOKED real.

I doubt Episode 3 wins any FX awards aswell. I thought Episode 2 might have wone on the fact that the clones were all CG and looked real for the most part, but it's pretty clear the academy is not much of a starwars fan.

This of course is just my opinion.

That isn't a fair comparision.
It's almost impossible (right now) to pull off a convincing CG Human Being, for any VFX house.

I'm sure they will further down the track, but right now it's just not 100% there.
It's ok for backround characters, lurking in the shadows, or as a stunt double (Obi Wan on the Kamino platform was pretty darn good) but you put that CG human in the foreground with a real live actor and it just ain't gonna look right!

A fair conparison would be Obi-Wan's Boga, to the Narnia Lion.
Boga, eats Narnia's Lion for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert and late night snack.

I can't stress enough how un-fanboyishly I place the VFX of the Prequels above every other movie I've seen released alongside them.

It isn't a fair comparison, but its the point of what I am saying. RotS didn't look real - it looked like a cartoon. It may have been technologically superior, but it still didnt look real. At least with Narina it appeared real - even if the standards were lower.

Its the same thing with the OT for me, yes the effects were dodgier, but I was taken in to world easier.

Have you even seen Narnia?

Aslan (the lion) looked okay -- in the sense he was there, but he looks so incredibly soft he never gels with whatever else is in the image. But he's hardly the only effect in the movie. You have CGI wolves that are embarassingly bad, blue screen work that rivals Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone in its terribleness, and a last battle that'll make you ache for MASSIVE.

That really bad long shot is in the movie for less than a minute. The aforementioned wolves are major players in Narnia.

At least with Narina it appeared real - even if the standards were lower.

The final battle in Narina was created using Massive. Rhythm and Hues is now using Massive for all of it's crowd/battle simulation work.
