Oscar Nominees: Best Original Song

My predictions: 0/2
My ballot: Come back next week!
The nominees: “Man or Muppet” (The Muppets) and “Real in Rio” (Rio)

This category annoys me to no end. Why, out of 39 contenders, do only two get deemed worthwhile? I’m absolutely thrilled that Bret McKenzie of the Flight of the Conchords is now an Oscar nominee, and though I haven’t seen the film, I did enjoy that song. It wasn’t, however, the one that I was expecting to get nominated from that film. I’m not a big fan of “Real in Rio,” however, and think that this category could have done a whole lot better. More on the deserving songs that were snubbed in my AFT Award nominees.

My current bet to win: “Man or Muppet” with a 50% chance.
