At this weekend’s Golden Globes, Sufjan Stevens isn’t one of the five nominees for Best Original Song. Not really surprising given the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) are huge star fuckers and love marquee names. They nominated Nick Jonas, Mariah Carey and Mary J. Blige for the category. However, Stevens is still an odds-on-favorite to receive love from the Academy. If you’ve seen Call Me By Your Name, you know how essential his music is to the film.
With Call Me By Your Name about to expand nationwide on Friday, January 19 and Oscar nomination ballots mailed out this week, a music video for “Mystery Of Love” has finally arrived. It features footage from the film as well as footage filmed at the M.A.N. (Museo Archeologico Nazionale of Naples).
The clip beautifully captures the sweetness and sadness of the critically-acclaimed film in just a few short minutes. It works as an excellent clip reel and should sway Academy members to cast a few nomination votes towards the film’s direction. Check it out below.
