Taylor Swift’s short film is eligible for an Oscar – Music News

Taylor Swift is officially eligible for an Oscar after her short film screened during the critical Oscars time window.

The pop star made her directorial debut with ‘All Too Well: A Short Film’ which starred Sadie Sink and Dylan O’Brien and was set to the full 10-minute version of Taylor’s song and she screened it at the Tribeca Film Festival over the summer.

It also screened at AMC Lincoln Square in New York in November 2021, which means it qualifies for Oscar eligibility, as the live-action shorts category window for the award Awards 2023 runs from October 1, 2021 to September 30, 2022.

While that doesn’t guarantee Taylor a nomination, her film can at least be considered a wink.

Taylor has previously insisted that her film isn’t just an extended music video, saying, “It’s not a music video. We approached everything differently.”

Short film star Dylan O’Brien also revealed that he thinks Taylor has a bright future in Hollywood as a director. The actress is convinced she could have a successful career behind the camera if she ever wanted to take a break from music. He told Etonline.com: “She would make a very, very good director. If it’s something she cares about, Taylor can do whatever she wants. She could easily direct a feature film and that would be something. something I would sign up for, for sure.”

The project has already landed five nominations for the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards, which will be presented on August 28 at New Jersey’s Prudential Center in Newark.

Oscar nominations will be announced on January 24, 2023 ahead of the March 12 ceremony.
