Oscars: Looking At the Best Original Song and Score

To tide you over until I finish up my insider's view of the Oscar Nominees Luncheon, check out my Behind The Red Carpet look at the nominees......

Let's look at the Best Original Song/Best Original Score Category.  There are so many controversies in both of these categories with the voting, the shortlist, who was eligible, and why there were only two nominees in the Best Original Song category.  I break it all down for you along with giving you a look at some of the rules at how the nominations happened in this category.

After shooting the video, I was able to interview two of the nominees for Best Original Song:  Sergio Mendes and Siedah Garrett for the movie, Rio, at the 39th Annual Annie Awards.  Here's what they had to say:


  1. I would really like for them to sort out the song category.  Then, I would like for a a few great ones to be written by both familiar + new to me musicians.  And then as the topper, I want the songs to be performed by the original artists at the Oscar ceremony.

  2. I can't believe they aren't having the Muppets perform. I can't think of a greater gift to fans of all generations.  They are revamping the rules after the Oscars this year......they already admitted that the system isn't working.
