Report: Peter Gabriel cancels Oscar performance and here’s why…

Former Genesis singer and 80’s icon, Peter Gabriel, has pulled out of his live performance at the Oscars this year. The reason? Simply because he was told that he would only perform the song, “Down to Earth” from the Wall-E soundtrack, for 60-65 seconds during a medley of the three nominated songs for “Best Song” category. He have decided that is not what he wanted. He wanted to perform the song in it’s entirety. Gabriel hopes the Academy will reconsider the medley mix and go back to artists performing the full song for next year.

Well, there you have it. The Oscars just revealed one of their secret surprises that they had never done before, performing short sections of songs for a medley. I actually agree with Gabriel that it is pretty ridiculous. The artists who wrote the songs for the movie should be able to perform the songs in entirety like they always did in the past. Kudos for Mr. Gabriel for calling the Academy out on this!!!

Thought: How “Wall-E” is going to get the nomination for BEST PICTURE at the Oscars…

Don’t think “Wall-E” will ever get the nomination for “Best Picture” at the Oscars? John Lassetter who serves as governor of the Academy’s animation branch, says it’s very possible, it could get the nomination.

And Wall-E is up there in the top contenders:

Animated films deserve a chance at getting more than just a small “Best Animation Award”, the Academy is looking to change that.

I don’t think Wall-E is Oscar worthy enough to win “Best Picture” but it certainly deserves the nomination for sure.

Thought: “Wall-E” is amazing but not worthy enough for “Best Picture” for the Oscars…

I finally saw, “Wall-E” last night and here is just a brief review. I loved it, I thought it was wonderful, great and entertaining, but I don’t find it worthy enough for a “Best Picture” win at the Oscars. It does deserve the nomination for “Best Picture”, yes, but definitely not winning the whole thing. The reason that “Wall-E” would be qualified to get “BEST PICTURE” nomination is because the film is both live action and animation put together in one film.

I really liked the story to “Wall-E”, it’s a love story where Wall-E falls in love with another female robot named Eve. A science fiction, action adventure story. What I love the most about “Wall-E” is the animation and the CGI graphics of the film. It’s indeed, Pixar’s best film. I liked the film a lot. It is a great film for all to see.

Report: “Wall-E” named Best Picture of the Year by the Los Angeles Film Critics…

The Los Angeles Film Critics Assn. has named “Wall-E”, an animated film about a robot made by Disney/Pixar, “Best Picture of the Year”. For them, this is the first time an animated movie has been named “Best Picture”. “The Dark Knight” is the runners up.

Is this a sign that “Wall-E” could get Best Picture nomination for the Oscars and it could actually win? That’s why this year’s Oscars is so unpredictable.

“Wall-E” does look amazing and I’ve been dyin’ to see it ever since it first came out in theater but I never did. I did put the “Wall-E” DVD on my Christmas wishlist so hopefully I’ll get “Wall-E” under the Christmas tree also. “Wall-E” looks like a great flick and can’t wait to see it.

Report: “Wall-E” beats “Wanted” in Box Office this weekend…

It was quite a competition in the box office this weekend between two huge movies. One was Pixar’s “Wall-E” an animated movie about a robot and the other was the action film “Wanted” starring Angelina Jolie. Both films pretty much broke world records in sales, however “Wall-E” beat out “Wanted” stealing the no. 1 spot this weekend. “Wall-E” made 62.5 million while “Wanted” made 51.1 million.

The Associates Press reports:

While “Wanted” didn’t make no. 1 it is still a huge hit, so that’s great news for Angie. This is Angie’s biggest hit in a long time. I plan to see “Wanted” this week on a day off of work.

I do want to see “Wall-E” too but I’ll wait for DVD on that one.
