Taylor Swift’s “All Too Well: The Short Film” video with Sadie Sink could be nominated for an Oscar
As producer and director of the movie-format clip made for the ten-minute version of “All Too Well,” Taylor Swift could win an Oscar next year, as the work meets the qualification criteria to be nominated for best short film.
At 15 minutes long, the video stars Sadie Sink, Max from “Stranger Things”, and Dylan O’Brien (Thomas from the Maze Runner film series). Taylor won the right to run after she screened the short in a New York movie theater in November last year. Swift said that the video was not a “music video”, and that the film was made with a totally different approach from that used in traditional music videos.
Another similar work that could also be at the maximum movie party is the still little seen, “We Cry Together (feat. Taylour Paige)”, by Kendrick Lamar which has not yet been made available on YouTube. In the rapper’s case, the clip was shown in a room in Los Angeles and seen only by a lucky few, basically friends and family of the artist, who had to leave their cell phones at the entrance.
Obviously, being qualified is no guarantee of being nominated, but the first step is already taken. Now it’s time to wait until January 24 when the contestants will be known. The 2023 Oscars will be held on March 12.
