Best Original Song At The Oscars

Posted by lonnie On February - 18 - 2013 0 Comment

Praising the year’s cinematic achievements, The Academy Awards will air this Sunday, February 24th. With honors given for “Best Picture”, “Best Actor”, “Best Actress” and “Best Director”, the award for “Best Original Song” tends to get overlooked amongst the batch. While I can name recent winners of the four titles above, the same cannot be said for the latter category. Titanic’s “My Heart Will Go On” and Three Six Mafia’s iconic win for Hustle &Flow’s “It’s Hard Out Here For A Pimp” are my only secure bets on past victors.

So, I’ve decided to stop my continuous unfamiliarity with “Best Original Song” and acquaint you, Shockya readers, and myself with recent year’s champions and this year’s contenders.

2003: “Lose Yourself” – “8 Mile”

2004: “Into The West” – “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King”

2005: “Al Otro Lado Del Río” – “The Motorcycle Diaries”

2006: “It’s Hard Out Here For A Pimp” – “Hustle & Flow”

2007: “I Need To Wake Up” – “An Inconvenient Truth”

2008: “Falling Slowly” – “Once”

2009: “Jai Ho” – “Slumdog Millionaire”

2010: “The Weary Kind” – “Crazy Heart”

2011: “We Belong Together” – “Toy Story 3”

2012: “Man or Muppet”’ – “The Muppets”

2013’s Ceremony Nominees

“Before My Time” – “Cashing Ice”

“Everybody Needs a Best Friend” – “Ted”

“Pi’s Lullaby” – “Life of Pi”

“Skyfall” – “Skyfall”

“Suddenly” – “Les Misérables”

Who Do You Think Will Take Home This Year’s “Best Original Song”?
