So I've done this twice a year since like ...208, and I enjoy it. But we all know that only a smattering of movies came out before The Sickness, so this is a combo "Ha ha, the Academy has to acknowledge mainstream art and music!" and "Remember when we had movies? And nominated songs? And the Academy awarded the wrong one?"
so, once again...SONGS THAT MAY BE UP FOR THE BEST ORIGINAL SONG AWARD SIMPLY BECAUSE ALL OF MOVIEGOING IS THROWN OUT OF WHACK
.Normani + Megan Thee Stallion - "Diamonds" - Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)
"I don't need you, all my diamonds drippin' wet."
So far, we had 2 superhero movies come out this year. One was eh, and the other was "Birds of Prey". It's bombastic and fun, even if it's not the best song on the album (Which samples some other songs
, so no nominations here).
Other potential awards should include production design, because it's coherent, fitting, and gaudy. And it should win for gaudy! Also "First DCEU film OP paid for since Suicide Squad."( 2 moreCollapse )
And, onto THESE SONGS WON, BUT LBR, SHOULD THEY HAVE?
Remember when, in spectacular fashion, The Academy fucked up on announcing Best Picture? Of course you do.
La La Land did win a multitude of things, including Best Original Song for "City of Stars", which, considering some of the talent involved, was not a bad song. But it wasn't the best the film had to offer.( 3 MoreCollapse )
