    Years like this are the reason that some people think this category shouldn’t exist.

    Unremarkable lineup of unremarkable songs from unremarkable films.

    None of them really deserve an Oscar, but any of them deserve to win out of this lineup.

    Just think if Ted or Dancer in the Dark had came out this year. We would be calling Seth MacFarlane or Lars von Trier Oscar winners.

    The sad thing is that some songs are played  at the end of the movie.  The Pimp song was incorporated thoughout thr movie

    Exactly. I think it was in inspired choice.

    I adore Dolly Parton. I would love her to win an Oscar but just dumping a song at the end of a film with no proper connection to the rest of the production (And in all likelihood not even written specifically for the film) is not what this category was meant to award.

    ‘It’s Hard Out There For A Pimp’ was a fantastic song in the context of ‘Hustle and Flow’ and was integral to the plot. The Academy got it absolutely right for a change.

    “In the Deep” was the only song I can remember tolerating. And not that this should be the determining factor of what wins this award, but it was also the only song to hit the Billboard Hot 100 (which happened after the Oscars ceremony, which tells me I’m not alone in thinking it was the most listenable song). Mind you, I can’t remember it very well. This was certainly one of the weaker years of this category.

    Don’t care for any of the songs nominated here, but based on lyrics alone it has to be the great Dolly Parton. Such a shame that, that fantastic woman doesn’t have an Oscar.
