La promesse (II) (2016)
And then there are the other times when a big series finale swing goes so awry that it can undo many seasons’ worth of goodwill. Recency bias rears its ugly head and some lifelong fans use these last episodes as a reason to sour on a particular show.
That’s why that the best finales don’t always come from the best shows. “Battlestar Galactica,” “How I Met Your Mother,” “Dexter,” and more often reached brilliance over the course of their runs, but rang less true with their final notes. Some of IndieWire’s choices below come from shows that wouldn’t

There were no major surprises in the original song race and only one minor surprise in the score category.
Oscar’s music branch confirmed what many pundits predicted going into this morning’s announcement: that “Remember Me” and “This Is Me,” the songs at the emotional core of the animated “Coco” and live-action “The Greatest Showman” respectively, would be nominated.
A win for either on March 4 would give their songwriters a second Academy Award: “This Is Me,” was written by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who won for “La La Land’s” “City of Stars” last year; and “Remember Me” was by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who won for another Disney film, “Let It Go” from 2013’s “Frozen.”

Video: Chris Cornell Vows to 'Keep the Promise'
As part of his long career as a songwriter and performer, Cornell wrote and recorded the title song for “The Promise” (2017), the first feature film to highlight the story of the Armenian genocide. All proceeds from the film have gone toward human rights causes, including creation of the Promise Institute for Human Rights at UCLA School of Law. Cornell donated all of his proceeds from the song to the International Rescue Committee.
The PSA video follows the announcement of the creation of an endowed fund of more than $1 million to support student scholarships at UCLA School of Law. The Chris Cornell Scholarship honors Cornell’s commitment to justice,
The Chris Cornell Scholarship honors Cornell’s commitment to justice, human rights and advocacy for those in need. Members of the coalition include several friends and colleagues of Cornell as well as supporters of UCLA Law. UCLA Chancellor Gene Block said the endowment is a fitting tribute to Cornell.
“This endowment honors an influential musical artist who cared about human rights and enables others the opportunity to make a positive impact in the world,” he said.

There is a long list of people who are worthy of Oscar consideration, so don’t forget these people when filling out your Oscar ballots, which are due Jan. 12. But let’s also give them special recognition, a round of applause for doing work that was above and beyond.
Writer-director Taylor Sheridan and his “Wind River” team deserve awards attention for delivering an entertaining and relevant film. Beyond that, they deserve a salute for wresting control of the movie away from the original distributor, the Weinstein Co. As soon as the story broke on Oct. 5 about that industry bully-rapist, Sheridan and Acacia Entertainment renegotiated everything and made sure that no profits will go to TWC, but instead
The actor — who has three separate sexual assault allegations made against him — is being replaced by Christian Cooke (The Promise, Cemetary Junction), with scenes to be reshot later this month.

The report from Forbes reveals that to determine the "most overpaid actor," they looked at the last three films each actor starred in, prior to June 1, 2017, excluding "animated films,
For the occasion, observed Dec. 10, the actor recorded a PSA urging viewers to “please support the organizations that work tirelessly to protect and promote our human rights.”
The actor’s video message follows his starring turn in the 2016 movie The Promise, which tells the story of the Ottoman Empire’s Armenian genocide at the end of World War I. Since the movie’s release, a slew of celebrities have pledged to “keep the promise” to help displaced refugees and fight for human rights.

Few other surprises popped up in the Globes’ music categories. Other best song contenders include “Remember Me” from “Coco” and “This is Me” from “The Greatest Showman,” both of which are frequently cited as among the frontrunners in the Oscars’ best song contest.

Open Road’s “Marshall,” about Thurgood Marshall, and Universal-DreamWorks’ “Thank You for Your Service,” about real-life Iraq war vet Adam Schumann, are awards contenders, but they’re also going beyond that. Each film has done outreach to dozens of groups, to entertain and to help make a better world.
Producer Paula Wagner says if people are aware of Marshall, it’s because he won the landmark Brown v. Board of Education case and he was the first black justice on the Supreme Court. But the film takes place in 1940, early in his career before those milestones. “Nobody knew this case,” says Wagner, “but it touches on issues that we’re still dealing with,” including racism, anti-Semitism and a legal system that is often more hindrance
