Sony Pictures has kicked off its campaign for promoting SPECTRE for Oscars.
If you CLICK HERE, you’ll see a Sony website aimed at members of the Motion Picture Academy of Arts and Scientists who nominate and vote on the Oscars.
Sony’s website lists “for your consideration” basically all the major SPECTRE cast and crew members. Among them: Daniel Craig for Best Actor; Christoph Waltz, Ben Whishaw, Ralph Fiennes, Dave Bautista and Andrew Scott for Best Supporting Actor; and Lea Seydoux, Naomie Harris and Monica Bellucci for Best Supporting Actress.
One change of note, compared with Skyfall’s Oscar campaign. Here, Sony suggests SPECTRE’s scribes of John Logan, Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and Jez Butterworth as worth of “Best Original Screenplay” consideration.
Three years ago, Logan, Purvis and Wade were promoted for “Best Adapted Screenplay” for Skyfall.
Skyfall ended up with five nominations, the most for any Bond film. It won two, including Best Song.
Sony’s contract to distribute Bond movies for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer expires with SPECTRE. MGM will either reach a new agreement with Sony or sign with another studio.
A shout out to “Gustav Graves” on the message board of the MI6 James Bond website for pointing out the website.
