"The Grey" Re-Released in October to Qualify for Oscars?

"The Grey" Re-Released in October to Qualify for Oscars?Submit Comment
"The Grey" hits theaters on Friday (January 27th), but with such strong buzz around Liam Neeson's performance, director Joe Carnahan considered a limited release in 2011 to let Neeson become eligible to win an Oscar.

"We didn't have [everything] set, [so] we said let's just release it when it's all ready," said Carnahan. "It's nice to even be mentioned, the idea that people even think it's awards-worthy. That's flattering. Open Road has said flat out and sort of scrawled it in blood that they're going to release the film in October 2012 for a qualifying run, which is great."

In other words, the studio will re-release the film in October to remind the Academy that "The Grey" is still out there and Neeson's performance is worthy of a Best Actor nomination for the 2013 Oscars.

"Taken By Wolves"

A true story.

Liam Neeson is going to find those wolves and kill them.

why didn't they just let it out a month earlier so it could compete in this year's oscars???

This only further prove the stupidity with the Oscars. Apparently they don't have the memory, or the will, to rewatch movies. They just pick the ones which they have fresh in mind.

It's R rated film. So, Q. Tarantino have some chances then ?

Zero chance. Maybe, just maybe a nom, but no chance in hell for an Academy win.

Did not Liam get an Oscar the same year StarWars TFM won for best movie and director?
