2012 Oscars Update: Best Original Song Shortlist

This category is so much easier now. Remember before, when it used to be that stupid shit, they vote from 6-10 in increments of .5s, and a song needs an aggregate of 8.25 in order to be nominated? And how if no song did, they’d take the two highest vote-getters (kind of like last year, where we only had two nominees)? Well, there’s no more of that bullshit. Now there are guaranteed to be five nominees. And whichever songs from this following list get the highest votes from the music branch will be the five songs nominated.

So basically this is just like Best Picture, except we have a guaranteed list of shit. The songs I’m about to show you are songs that the music branch will sit down and watch (they make clips videos of all the songs), and whichever songs get the most votes (I’m assuming everyone gets to pick a 1-5, like with Best Picture) will be the ones in the final category.

So let’s start listening and seeing what we’d vote for, huh? (more…)


Pic of the Day: “Oh! A case… for my harmonica.” “Oh, my! A chain for my… watch. Oh, Mickey, it’s beautiful. But I traded my watch to get you that case.” “And I traded my harmonica to get a chain for your watch.” “Oh, Mickey! I can’t believe you gave up what means the most to you for me.” “Oh, Minnie. You’re all the music I’ll ever need.”
