Warners has put up TH for Oscar consideration in 16 categories... Can't Post

Just saw this pointed out on IMDB...On the official Warner Bros. site, the studio suggests TH for consideration in the following Academy Award categories:

-Best Picture
-Best Director
-Best Adapted Screenplay
-Best Actor: Martin Freeman (apparently they're not concerned at all Tongue)
-Best Supporting Actor: Ian McKellan, Richard Armitage, Andy Serkis
-Best Supporting Actress: Cate Blanchett
-Best Cinematography
-Best Art Direction
-Best Film Editing
-Best Costume Design
-Best Make-up
-Best Sound Mixing
-Best Sound Editing
-Best Visual Effects
-Best Original Score
-Best Original Song

(look under the "For Your Consideration" tab)

Whatever the actuality, WB certainly has faith the film will have LotR-comparable cinematic importance/impact. Note that they're yet to be nominations yet, but they must feel the film is strong across the board,

I hope Ian gets his long-deserved award for playing Gandalf this time around. BTW, as I recall, aren't mo-cap performances not recognized by the Academy? I suppose they're (rightly) trying to change that for Andy...Fox launched a similar campaign for Serkis' role in the last Apes film.

It seems also that TH will have some really depth/gravity, at least enough to warrant consideration for the Oscars. However, "Bridesmaids" was nominated for a number of categories last year if I'm not mistaken...EvilAngelicWinkTongue

My Top 5 Wish List for "The Hobbit"
5. Legolas will surf down Smaug's neck
4. Bilbo will be revealed to a Robot
3. Naked PJ cameo as Ghan-Buri-Ghan
2. Use of not only 3D, but smell-o-vision, plus the inclusion of axes coming out of the seats and poking the audience when appropriate
1. Not only keep the claim that Thorin & Co. ran amok in Mirkwood "molesting people", but depict said incident in vivid detail!!!!!

        I was referring to my reservations about which I've posted before. // Captain Salt Send a private message to Captain Salt Nov 16 2012, 6:06am

                And another Q. How often do studios put up films before they've been released. Moahunter Send a private message to Moahunter Nov 16 2012, 7:41am
                I don't know, why don't you do some research? // Captain Salt Send a private message to Captain Salt Nov 16 2012, 6:04pm

                        I think I'd came off as a tad overly-dismissive... Captain Salt Send a private message to Captain Salt Nov 16 2012, 11:34pm

    I just hope that the Neil Finn song isn't disqualified... Otaku-sempai Send a private message to Otaku-sempai Nov 16 2012, 4:37pm
        The Misty Mountain song is not Shore's Kassandros Send a private message to Kassandros Nov 16 2012, 7:47pm
            Ironic then... Otaku-sempai Send a private message to Otaku-sempai Nov 16 2012, 7:57pm
                Also strange that Finn and Shore didn't collaborate on the end titles song... Captain Salt Send a private message to Captain Salt Nov 16 2012, 8:02pm
                Doug Adams would be in a better position to comment on this Kassandros Send a private message to Kassandros Nov 16 2012, 9:48pm
