During the months of December and January, I will post some people/movies that deserve Academy Award recognition in February. So, if any Academy members are viewing this blog, please take this post into consideration…
With my first “For Your Consideration” post I decided instead of starting big, I’d start small. That’s why I’m starting with a category often overlooked: Best Original Song. While it may unfortunately be passed over in all of the main categories, here is the Academy’s chance to honor “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.” It offered not one, but three fantastic, hilarious, and catchy songs. Oscar is never kind to comedies in the categories that matter, but they have often been kind to them in the song category (ex: “Blame Canada” from “South Park Bigger, Longer, and Uncut”).
Here are the three songs from “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” worthy of a nomination:
We’ve Got To Do Something
Inside Of You
