I have less faith in Oscar voters, they are fickle snobs like Grammy voters, they probably look at Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes before they vote. Mark Harris has covered their shadiness today on Twitter

I just can't wait for her tweet with a pic from the studio :D

And let's be CLEAR. Mariah CAREY did NOT start to sing over hip-hop beats and working with rappers until she hired Mary's "what's the 411?" producers for "Butterfly." Why? Because she wanted to be as respected as Mary.

What a great way it would be for Mariah to start off the year winning the globe for songwriting! :D

Agreed, completely allygdale. The Oscar voters and Grammy voters are on equal playing field as far as the snob thing is concerned. Hopefully the Academy voters will prove us wrong.

WOW I guess i'm out of touch with the winners in that category. I didn't know Madonna won a few years ago! :o Also, it might not mean anything in the end. But very interesting Kelly Clarkson is presenting. I hate getting my hopes up for things like this. But I will be ecstatic if she wins. This is exactly the type of thing she needs to further her success and positivity.

I too can't wait for the first pic from the studio!

bm08, that is a very interesting article from Goldderby. Awards & predictions are their specialty, and at least she & Marc are being considered as top contenders.

‘The Star’ director Timothy Reckart spoke to Deadline about how Mariah/Marc's song came about:
http://deadline.com/2018/01/the-star-ti ... 202230037/

D: How did Mariah Carey’s original song for the film, “The Star,” come together?

TR: We knew that we wanted the movie to be in large part musically driven. It’s not a musical, but we wanted to include Christmas music in the movie, and ideally to help tell the story. From the very beginning in our screenings, we were using temp music—slotting, “Well, here’s where we want to use ‘What Child Is This’, and here’s where we want to use ‘Children Go Where I Send You.’”

We found out Mariah was interested and it was like, which area is going to be the most fruitful for an original title song? The place where her song fits, originally there was some other pre-existing Christmas carol, but what we were able to do with the temp music was set a toe for the kind of epic scope of that part of the thing. I think that was a good jumping-off point for Mariah and Marc Shaiman to write their song. It helped evoke the mood we wanted for that part of the movie, but obviously it was a completely originally melody, and the great thing about what they put together is that it’s continually responding to what’s in the picture, lyrically speaking.

Awards predictions are my specialty, everyone! And I LOVE theorizing outcomes and am thrilled Mariah has a chance to be a player this year. I have a few connections in the entertainment reporting business, albeit all the way up here in Canada, but I have heard stories about how politicking plays out during awards season, nonetheless.
A huge chunk of the reason why Madonna won Best Original Song a few years ago for a tepid song in an inconsequential movie was a conflation of two things: (1) The HFPA's (Golden Globe voters) starry eyed attraction to huge names in entertainment, who are typically the more generous campaigners with under the table giveaways (ie. the hot as hell Aaron Taylor-Johnson winning best supporting actor last year after HFPA members received items from the film's director Tom Ford's perfume line; and then missing out entirely at an Oscar nomination) (2) the omnipresent influence of Harvey Weinstein (who is out of the picture this year and also forever), whose company Miramax distributed her film. This, and also Lady GaGa winning BEST ACTRESS is the closest precedent to a potential win for Mariah. Clearly they love the larger than life pop divas.
Sony Pictures Entertainment (which also distributes Colombia Pictures films) has ZERO contenders this year. And I mean none. So they either hand in the towel, ignore Mariah's Star momentum and return to their superhero franchises, or they can give The Star the push that it needs with projecting the right narrative to score an Oscar nomination. And the secret weapon is really Marc Shaiman. If they put out that all he needs is an Oscar to complete the EGOT, I think their chances would skyrocket. It worked in Meryl Streep's favour when she won for that mundane Margaret Thatcher film, after people (including her director and Weinstein) made the appeal that it has been 30+ years since she last won an Oscar. Best Original Song is a less polarizing category.
The only issue is the voting system in place. Even with Marc Shaiman's myriad of personal connections in the Oscar voting block (including very famously, Whoopi, who is a board member), the nominations are determined only by the branch in which the nomination is eligible. So basically the music people will be voting for the nominations whereas the Academy as a whole will be voting for the winners. And the individual branches are where the snobs are. But then again, stranger things outside of 'Oscar-nominated mega pop diva Mariah Carey' have certainly happened - like It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp being performed and winning in 2006 with Dame Judi Dench sitting in the audience.

So you are basically saying that these awards mean nothing and are all staged or down to politics ?
Hell maybe Mariah threw someone a brown envelope just to get nominated ;-)

Did you think the Grammy voters were fickle snobs when they awarded Mariah Best new artist ? Didnt she get three awards for TEOM also ?

Why not? It's important to know that long before What's the 411? graced our radios and CD players, Kurtis Blow had singers on the chorus for If I Ruled The World. Let us bask in the genius of this song. That intro, though:



Also, it's important to note that Paula Abdul had a rapping cat on "Opposites Attract". Heck, even Michael Jackson got in on the action with Run-DMC, although that song never came out.

All of these were released in the eighties, and served as the basis for what Mary and Mariah and others did in the 90s.

Lastly, it's worth a mention that these two ladies are friends, and Mary has always spoken highly of Mariah, citing her as an influence. She had this to say about Mariah:

"I love Mariah Carey. Mariah Carey's music saved little ghetto children's lives. Songs like "Vision of Love" gave us hope and we would sing those songs and try to hit every note like Mariah -- which we can't. I don't think she knows what a big part she plays in Mary J. Blige's life. And then to meet her….she's such a beautiful person that you can't do anything but defend her when [the media] starts acting stupid on her. She doesn't deserve that."
