And the 2014 Oscar nominations are...
Michael Bonner

It's awards time of year, folks. And here's the nominations in the key categories of this year's Oscars. I'm very pleased to see a lot of films we've supported over the last 12 months have received nominations - especially American Hustle, Nebraska (our 2013 Film of The Year), The Wolf Of Wall Street and Gravity.

It's great, too, to see Bruce Dern up for a Best Actor nomination, and also the tremendous work done by Matthew McConaughey, Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence recognised with nominations. It is - dare I say it - the most Uncut-friendly Oscars for many years. And you can click on the links embedded below to read our original reviews of the films.

Anyway, we'll see who wins on March 2.

The 35th Uncut Playlist Of 2014


Weird serendipities aplenty this week: versions of "O, Death" on two albums I downloaded one after another, by Mike & Cara Gangloff and Bessie Jones; dovetailing into Sea Island overlap between Jones and Loscil. It makes for a nice blurring between time and genre with, say, the Gangloffs...
