MAN OF STEEL Among Films Getting Oscar Push From Warner Bros.

Despite the mixed reactions to Man of Steel this year, Warner Bros. is still including it among the films that it will promote for the Oscars 2014 season. The studio launched a “For Your Consideration” website (which you can view by clicking HERE), where ten movies are being pushed for award nominations. The Superman reboot is being pushed for the following categories:
Best Picture

Best Director for Zack Snyder

Best Adapted Screenplay for David S. Goyer

Best Cinematography for Amir Mokri

Best Production Design for Alex McDowell and Anne Kuljian

Best Film Editing for David Brenner

Best Original Score for Hans Zimmer

Best Visual Effects for John “DJ” DesJardin, Guillaume Rocheron, Dan Lemmon and Ged Wright

Best Costume Design for James Acheson and Michael Wilkinson

Best Sound Editing for Scott Hecker and Eric A. Norris

Best Sound Mixing for Michael McGee, Chris Jenkins and Frank A. Montaño

Best Makeup and Hairstyling for Victoria Down and Anji Bemben

You can check WB’s “For Your Consideration” page for Man of Steel for more details. Unfortunately, the movie will unlikely be nominated for any major categories (if any categories at all) since it was such a mixed bag among critics. Man of Steel was also surprisingly snubbed from the Best Visual Effects finalists, even though movies with weaker CGI (such as World War Z) were included. Meanwhile, other films being pushed by WB this season include Gravity, Pacific Rim, 42, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and Her
