Dawn Treader Award Nominations News Update

A few news updates on award nominations for the The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

Bad news first, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader was in the running for a Best Visual Effects Academy award, but did not make it into the next round of finalists in this category.

The good news is, Dawn Treader is a finalist for two BAFTA awards — Special Visual Effects and Costume Design. The full list of nominees can be seen on BAFTA’s website here. The document can be downloaded as a Word or PDF file.

And last but not least, Dawn Treader has also received a nomination for Best Fantasy Film by the Art Director’s Guild. That full list can be seen here.

Thanks to everyone who sent these stories in!

    Well, I like Steven Curtis Chapman and Casting Crowns and Tenth Avenue North, and they all have good songs that capture the emotion(s) they are going for, but I am not sure a Christian band doing it would be quite the answer, although I can actually see a Tenth Avenue North song at the end of the next Narnia movie, their songs make me cry and are awesome. I think they would be able to capture the feelings that TAPFU didn't. Maybe it would work, I don't know. And I LOVED the music at the end of LWW, was it Italian? I didn't know that…but it was so perfect and beautiful.

    And on Box Office Mojo's weekend roundup (http://boxofficemojo.com/news/?id=3050&p=.htm), they had this to say: "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader dropped 48 percent to $9.2 million in 65 territories. Its $3.6 million weekend in China brought its total there to $12.6 million, making it China's highest-grossing entry in the Narnia series. With an foreign total of $257.6 million, Dawn Treader stood just over $20 million away from eclipsing Prince Caspian's total." So that's good news for nearing PC's total, even if that's not necessarily the benchmark studios are looking for to green light the next movie (I don't think anyone had come out and said so, anyway).

    Maybe nominations will continue to bring in a few new viewers here and there. Repeat viewings are good, but new viewers are even better I would think. Looking forward to the announcements of Academy Award nominations, even if "Dawn Treader" only ends up contending for the technical/music categories! 🙂

    Gem: I actually thought that having a song like The Call fit the movie plot nicely. They were leaving Narnia, and all the sparkly, fantastical wonders that belong to Narnia, and coming back to the "real" world. (So maybe it should have been Bing Crosby or something instead?:))
    But I wasn't so okay with a country song in a Narnia movie. A pop "ish" song is one thing, country-which is distinctly American and makes us think of cowboys, guitars and such-is another. You could look at it from a lot of different angles. It all depends on what you want from a certain movie.

    What about TobyMac, David Crowder, or Kutless?

  6. Gem says:

    elanor, neither country nor pop songs belong at the end of a Narnia film, that's just that. Well, I am a fan of TobyMac, but seriously, he's kind of the king of rockier music in Christian music, what would people think of him doing a song? And though he has some very surprisingly deep lyrics a lot, he will just always do rockier music, I can't see him doing something that would suit Narnia music wise. David Crowder is good, but I don't think for Narnia. Hey, Kutless would be great, if maybe they did something a little slower than what their norm is. I just can't see a big slam finish song with electric guitars and drum beats blasting out of the speaker for the end-of-the-movie music, for Narnia, that is.

    are you going to apologize for calling me rude, queen eliz? Remember I am the HIGH queen.

  8. Edmund's Queen says:

    I've liked all the Narnia songs so far, except for Dance Around the Memory Tree, Lucy, and Winter's Light. The genre doesn't really bother me, so long as the words fit and the tunes are reflective.

  9. Alambil and Tarvis says:

    If 'There's A Place for Us' doesn't win an Oscar, I'm going to throw a Scrubb tantrum Dx

    And of course David Arnold wouldn't get nominated for the soundtrack. Which made me CRY. ugh Hollywood has no taste

    I like the old song writer more they were beautiful! Don't care for David Arnold's songs for Narnia!
