An Oscar Nomination is a Beautiful thing...until it's taken away - Academy Revokes Best Song Contender

An Oscar nomination is a beautiful thing...until it's taken away...

"Alone Yet Not Alone" is no longer in the running for the coveted due to accusations of improper campaigning.

The Academy renegged it's nomination for best original song nomination for the film of the same name over accusations of the composer having an unfair advantage.

The Academy board of governors voted Tuesday night afterlearning that composer Bruce Broughton who in the past held a seat on the Academy board  e-mailed members during the voting period.

"No matter how well-intentioned the communication, using one's position as a former governor and current executive committee member to personally promote one's own Oscar submission creates the appearance of an unfair advantage," said Cheryl Boone Isaacs, president of the Academy.

Campaigning with an added avantage is a rule violation. No other song will be nominated in its place.

 

"If any campaign activity is determined by the board of governors to work in opposition to that goal, whether or not anticipated by these regulations, the Board of Governors may take any corrective actions ... to protect the reputation and integrity of the awards process."

 

Though rare, this is not the first time the Academy has revoked a nomination.

In 1992, "A Place in the World" lost its Oscar nomination for best foreign-language film over questions over whether it was produced in Argentina, and not Uruguay as it had designated itself.

An academy veteran, she had

An academy veteran, she had served in various posts inside the organization's hierarchy and produced last year's Governors Awards. But now Isaacs tenure as president is being buffeted by controversy over a decision by the academy's board of governors to disqualify the song Alone Yet Not Alone from a small, faith-based movie of the same name that few have seen. How deftly she navigates the controversy could prevent the dispute from tarnishing the Oscars.

 

The song is from a film that had a limited release last fall to qualify for Oscar consideration and will be released more widely June 13. The song was recorded by Joni Eareckson Tada, a quadriplegic with limited lung capacity, and was one of five songs nominated by the academy on Jan. 16.

  

"No matter how well-intentioned the communication, using one's position as a former governor and current executive committee member to personally promote one's own Oscar submission creates the appearance of an unfair advantage," the academy said in a written statement announcing its ruling. The action was designed "to protect the reputation and integrity of the awards process."
