Grammy award-winning singer and songwriter, Taylor Swift might soon be called an Oscar-nominated director for her recent short film, All Too Well. Swift, who is currently in the process of re-recording all her songs to have ownership of her masters, recreated her 2012 song, ‘All Too Well’, blessing us with a 10-minute long version which later turned into a short film starring Sadie Sink and Dylan O’Brien.
The 15-minute long short film received love and praise from fans all around the world, especially for Sadie Sink who played her so beautifully, truly making it a masterpiece. In fact, the ‘Enchanted’ singer’s debut short is now eligible to qualify in the best live-action short film category at the Oscars which features films that are timed under 40 minutes.
Written and directed by Taylor Swift, the singer-songwriter recently had a screening of her “not a music video” short film at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. But, Swift is not the only artist this year to compete at the Oscars. American rapper, Kendrick Lamar, who has previously worked with the pop singer for her chart-topping single, ‘Bad Blood’, also created a short film, We Cry Together, which has made the cut. The ‘Humble’ rapper stars in the six-minute long film alongside Taylor Paige which was released earlier this year in May.
So, Swifities, what’s the verdict?
