No Time to Die receives 3 Oscar nominations

No Time to Die, the 25th James Bond film, received three Oscar nominations, the Academy of Motion PIcture Arts and Sciences announced today.

The Bond film was nominated for best song, visual effects, and sound.

Hans Zimmer, the lead composer for No Time to Die, was nominated for Dune instead.

No Time to Die is only the third Bond film to receive multiple Oscar nominations. The others were The Spy Who Loved Me (three nominations, no wins) and Skyfall (five nominations, two wins). The 2021 film is the third consecutive Bond movie to be nominated for best song. Both Skyfall and SPECTRE won in that category.

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Bond’s home studio, had conducted a blitz seeking nominations. There had been speculation that genre movies such as No Time to Die and Spider-Man No Way Home might be included in the 10 best picture nominees.

It was not to be. Neither film was nominated. Here is the list of the 10 nominees:

  1. ‘Seems that stigma which has always saddled Bond films persists. As Rodney Dangerfield would’ve said… ah, you know.

    Not that it would’ve made a hoot of difference, but “Don’t Look Up” …really?

  2. I think that is three nods TOO many for that over-long, poorly executed and intellectually insulting boring waste of electronic images.
    I have a friend that had three better nominations:
    “Best picture (because Bond dies and the Academy hates all Bond movies). Best Original Score for John Barry. Best Supporting Actor in a Terrible Film: Robert Brown’s Portrait”

  3. Totally agree.
    One of the most UNDESERVING films for an Oscar ever made.
    Happily, it does solidify that fact that the Academy knows nothing about quality and follows politics as usual.
    At least, the series seems to be dead for some time, unless a company like Disney buys it and puts it all back on track and dumps all the silly, girly angst that the little snowflakes out there seem to embrace.
