Paramount FYC site goes live

Posted by · 9:08 am · December 5th, 2009

One of the things I always look forward to each year has been the launch of, an FYC site that was geared toward Paramount Vantage’s product and always had great interactive features and wonderful design.  This year, with Vantage gone, we’ve got, which just went live.

You can check out some goodies related to “Star Trek” and “Up in the Air” right now.  I’m told the content for “The Lovely Bones” and “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” will be available next week.  For now, give the image below a click and have a look.

    Looking through The Lovely Bones’ consideration list I remembered that Eno did the film’s score. I haven’t heard any word on it though?

    I have to say that I expected “Up In The Air” to get better reviews. I mean, the critics obviously like it a lot but An Education is higher on Metacritic and The Hurt Locker is a lot higher on both MC and RotTom. I still think it’s Up In The Air or Precious for the Oscar but I just expected it to be more loved.

    How much do I love the fact that for the Star Trek page they put the actors first? A lot. They made the film and they rightfully deserve to be first… or J.J. and the casting director

    It’s just funny seeing a FYC page for Transformers 2. Especially the categories of Best Picture and Best Director, and nothing for the actors hahaha.

    Did they add more to Wahlberg’s role to make him a lead?

    And I have to admit… Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Best Picture FYC leaves a bad taste in my mouth

    oh, I didn’t know that father and son Reitman’s would win an Oscar together, in case Up in the Air wins Best Picture… I think that’ll happen…

    Odd that they give the “Help Yourself” song its own little spot on the Up in the Air page, even though they’re not pushing it for an Oscar nom on the “Consider this” page (was it ineligible?).

    Both Kendrick and Farmiga for supporting too, I guess they realized it was foolish to plug Farmiga as lead?

    Two InContention quotes on the “Up in the Air” page?

    Mmm…listening to a snippet of the Star Trek score reminds me how much I love Giacchino’s score for that. Even though I just kind of like the movie, I loooooooooove the score, and think Giacchino should be nominated for it AND Up. Double composer nods have happened before, so it might be possible, depending on how much respect Giacchino has.

    Wow, I’m proud of you Kris! And it’s not just the good things you wrote about the film. It’s the fact that they noticed you write great reviews!

    Oh, didn’t even notice those. Neat.

    aspect ratio: You must have missed this. And I think I mentioned a couple of months ago in an Oscar Talk that Farmiga’s personal reps didn’t bite on the lead campaign.

    Funny that they have Transformers as up for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, etc., but they don’t put Shia LaBeouf up for Best Actor. His performance was actually…good. I mean, no, he’s not going to get an Oscar nom, but if you’re going to bother FYC’ing for Best Screenplay, why not do it for a part of the movie that was actually -good-?

    I wasn’t a fan of “Star Trek” at all, but I would be very pleased to see Giacchino nominated for “Trek” instead of “Up” (a very expected score, whereas “Trek” was a complete surprise and a wonderful one at that).

    I do wish they weren’t using that awful warp poster though.

    It’s likely that the studio just does overall FYC lists for all of their films. Certainly Transformers deserves to be considered in Tech categories but every studio that has an FyC list for any film lists the people that worked on the film. maybe the leads in transformers didn’t want to be listed. we don’t know how they come up with their lists. but to me it seems like it’s just a place so people can see who worked on the film.

    Looking at that all I can think is:
