in the Entertainment Weekly discussion of the best song possibilities article? What is up with THAT? I missed this because I don't usually read the music section, but for some reason that is where they decided to put the predictions for best song. (sorry if this was mentioned before)
PEACE.

Dammit Sue! I haven't read this week's issue yet and now you've ruined the music section for me. Couldn't you have at least put "spoiler" in the thread title?!?!

It's Shaiman with an "a," not Shaimin with an "i," 'cause Shaiman with an "i" goes "Ai, ai, yi-yi-yi."

Oh, sorry about the spelling error. It was early.
I reread that article and it is amazing that they go on about songs that are not even eligible, but don't even mention Marc or Hairspray. What gives?
PEACE.

Sueleen ^ that annoyed me more than anything.

SWEENEY this and that AND a photo. Oh but by the way, not eligible.

I should write an email.

They even took the time to mention movies like SUPERBAD.

I hope HAIRSPRAY is not overlooked in this category. I know part of it is political, well if so - no one has had a better relathionship with the Academy Awards telecasts than Marc Shaiman, and lets not leave out Scott Wittman.

Oh well.

We'll know next week.

It's too bad that Hairspray wasn't mentioned. However, I wouldn't take it too seriously since it seems like the focus was more on the songs that weren't eligable, but should have been (in their opinion). Hopefully it will get a Best Song nod.

But Hairspray would have been a great example of a film with great songs that are NOT eligible and a couple that ARE.
PEACE.
