OSCARS: 'Tree Of Life' Producer Credits Finally Determined For Best Picture Contender

Beverly Hills, CA – Producer credits for 84th Academy Awards® Best Picture nominee “The Tree of Life” have been determined by the Producers Branch Executive Committee of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The official nominees for the film are Sarah Green, Bill Pohlad, Dede Gardner and Grant Hill.

Academy rules allow for no more than three producers to be nominated and to potentially receive Oscar® statuettes. The executive committee called a meeting to determine if “The Tree of Life” represented a “rare and extraordinary circumstance,” as described by the rules, and if any additional producer would be eligible. The committee determined that Green, Pohlad, Gardner and Hill functioned as genuine producers of the film and would be cited in the nomination.

Producers for the eight other motion pictures nominated in the Best Picture category – “The Artist,” “The Descendants,” “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close,” “The Help,” “Hugo,” “Midnight in Paris,” “Moneyball” and “War Horse” – were announced on January 24 and remain unchanged.

Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2011 will be presented on Sunday, February 26, at the Kodak Theatre.

  1. I really am confused. I started watching this film. It was pretty, but went on and on and on and on and seemed to me so indulgent about what it was expressing, but I wasn’t sure what that was after a while. Yes it is sad to lose a child, for sure. But I just couldn’t stick around and see the rest after a while I seldom do that with a film or a book, but with this I just couldn’t go on either.

  2. Self indulgent wank fest by Malick. May have it’s virtues for the select few willing to dig for them, but is by no means a good FILM.

  3. It is perhaps the most influential film released in 2011, and will be remembered long after the truth.
