Taylor Swift And Kendrick Lamar Will Be Eligible For A Trophy At The 2023 Academy Awards
Both artists will qualify for nominations in the Best Live Action Short category thanks to the fact that extended music videos for both of their songs – the 10-minute version of ‘All Too Well’ from ‘Red (Taylor’s Version)’ and Lamar’s' Mr. Morale And The Big Steppers’ cut 'We Cry Together’ – were screened theatrically.
Swift released the accompanying short film for 'All Too Well’ – her directorial debut, starring Sadie Sink (Stranger Things) and Dylan O’Brien (The Maze Runner) – last November. After premiering it at a bespoke event in Manhattan, Swift later took the project to New York’s Tribeca Film Festival, where she declared that “it would be fantastic to write and direct a feature."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Swift is currently in talks with “a top consulting firm” to organise a formal campaign for the project – which she’s described as “a film about an effervescent, curious young woman who ends up completely out of her depth” – in the lead-up to awards season.
Meanwhile, Lamar began screening his short film for 'We Cry Together’ – starring himself alongside Taylour Paige (Zola), who also performs on the song – back in June. It’s yet to be released to the public, but it was screened theatrically across seven showings at the Laemmle Royal Theater in West LA – one each day between Friday June 3 and Thursday June 9 – which makes it eligible for next year’s Oscars.
