Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Original Song

The competition: Man or Muppet, Real in Rio

Previous winners: We Belong Together (Toy Story 3), The Weary Kind (Crazy Heart), Jai Ho (Slumdog Millionaire), Falling Slowly (Once), I Need To Wake Up (An Inconvenient Truth), It’s Hard Out There For A Pimp (Hustle & Flow)
My winner: Masterpiece (W.E.)
Who should win: Man or Muppet
Who will win: This category is extremely difficult to predict since, for some inexplicable reason, there are only two nominees this year. The only nominee that has been here before is Siedah Garrett, one of the three-person team nominated for “Rio.” Oscar voters to tend like animated anthems, but I’m not sure that “Real in Rio” counts. It seems so unlikely that “The Muppets” won’t win, and I’d be absolutely thrilled to see Bret McKenzie of the Flight of the Conchords win an Oscar.
