Skip to comments.Critics Ballistic Over Christian Film's Oscar Nod
Posted on 01/19/2014 9:13:05 PM PST by unlearner
Like David versus Goliath, an upstart Christian film has shocked the world by winning an unlikely victory in the form of an Academy Award nomination.
Only this time, the crowds aren't cheering for David.
Instead, mainstream-media Oscar watchers across the nation have blasted the Academy for choosing the hymn-like testament to Gods presence over hits by pop artists like Jay-Z and Taylor Swift.
"I cant figure any of this s out," an unnamed competitor told the Hollywood Reporter, or THR, after learning his or her song was beaten out by "Alone Yet Not Alone," the title song from the faith-themed movie of the same name.

Beautiful song sung by an Angel, IMO.
Could somebody please just perhaps mention the f n name of the film?!
Thanks for posting, I had heard about this and then forgot about it...one of my heroes...she’s very real!
Alone, Yet Not Alone....same as the song title.
That’s a beautiful song.
Did you not read the story? The film has the same name as the song.
And you wonder why many people complain that the entertainment industry is out of touch with the average American.
No. I’m stuck out with just a phone. Five minutes and the story won’t load.
Just a break. Title, state, if not city, a clue
Just the title in parentheses :) :)
Amazing! Her voice will one day be a welcome addition to the Heavenly Choir!
Praise God...What a testimony to God’s grace...
“Alone Yet Not Alone,” the title song from the faith-themed movie of the same name.
Everyone’s so jumping on the job when it comes to humiliating me. Nary a soul to inform before I stick my neck out yo ask a simple simple very easy request.
Thanks you have been ever so helpful after four others have posted snarky answers
Thanks so very very very kindly
Like David verses Goliath is the title.
oh, I’ve been there! Worse things have happened.
Could be the way you asked it - you were pretty snarky yourself.
“Alone Yet Not Alone.” Just laziness that you didn’t read the excerpted portion. It was in the 4th sentence. Nothing snarky here. Don’t expect to be spoon fed on FR.
LOL, now go take another swig of Miller Lite, tough guy.
Odds are you never will.
Could be that everyone here is a little taken back by your choice of the word f n when we are talking about a faith based film.
You might have had a more gracious response to a question on a Christian thread if you had asked without an obscenity. That might not have set well with people who are discussing a beautiful Christian song and movie facing hostility from a coarse, obscene Hollywood culture.
I should get a little credit. I did answer his question. Just a little cranky here. Sorry.
...wonder how a song that has been heard by virtually no one outside the branch from a film that hardly anyone has seen secured an Oscar nomination”...
I seem to recall conservatives asking the same thing a few years back when Brokeback Mountain and Transamerica were nominated and Cinderella Man wasn’t.
You ask: “Could somebody please just perhaps mention the f n name of the film?!”
LOL - time for bed?
Ummm - reading comprehension 101?
I says: “titls song from...the movie of the same name.”
Betcha can figure that out :)
Movie has only been in limited release and seems to be scheduled for 6/14.
Maybe it’s because it’s a religious song and you had to ask “what’s the f name”?
As you said, “ugh.”
