Best Original Song Fixed - For Now....

The Academy has announced new rules for the Best Original Song category which was shoved aside with only two nominees last year. It is a real travesty, and I am glad that the Academy has, at least for now, fixed part of the old system. Instead of the scoring system, members of the music branch will simply list their preferences, up to five, and the top five vote getters will be our nominees. It is so simple, yet hopefully will restore some sanity to the category, and put back into play more songs, such as those that play over end credits. Last year there were some great songs that were incredible snubbed. We'll have to wait and see how this effects the nominees, but I think it will be for the better.

  1. I still like this category, and I think people should stop bitching about it.
