    Last week, I created a post asking people to name their 10 favorite Oscar-winning songs. And while there are many great songs that have been nominated for or won Oscars, there are many that were never nominated at all that were probably good enough to be nominated. So I decided to post my own list here. Unlike my last post, you don’t have to limit yourself to a top 10 and honorable mentions. List as many as you want (but don’t go too overboard and make your list as long as Frank Welker’s IMDB page).

    Songs That Should Have Gotten Oscar Nominations:

    “A Spoonful Of Sugar”—Mary Poppins
    “Toot Sweets”—Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
    “Pure Imagination”—Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory
    “Tomorrow Is Another Day”—The Rescuers
    “Brazzle Dazzle Day”—Pete’s Dragon
    “Hey A Movie!”—The Great Muppet Caper
    “Flying Dreams”—The Secret Of NIMH
    “It Feels Like Christmas”—The Muppet Christmas Carol
    “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me”—Batman Forever
    “God Help The Outcasts”—The Hunchback Of Notre Dame
    “Hellfire”—The Hunchback Of Notre Dame
    “At The Beginning”—Anastasia
    “Reflection”—Mulan
    “I’ll Make A Man Out Of You”—Mulan
    “Your Heart Will Lead You Home”—The Tigger Movie
    “Where The Dream Takes You”—Atlantis: The Lost Empire
    “Get Out Of London”—The Wild Thornberrys Movie
    “Gollum’s Song”—The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers
    “When Christmas Comes To Town”—The Polar Express
    “Real Gone”—Cars

    The biggies are the Saturday Night Fever and Purple Rain soundtracks.

    I like “How Deep Is Your Love” and “When Doves Cry” in particular. But really, you could’ve filled out those entire categories with tunes just from those pictures.

    I don’t like the existence of this category given how very few movies these days have songs that are actually significant to them.

    Songs That Should Have Gotten Oscar Nominations:

    “Maybe This Time”—Cabaret

    “Maybe This Time” from Cabaret was originally performed by Liza Minnelli on a 1964 album and simply given a new arrangement for the film. It was not a new song.

    Whoops, my bad. I didn’t know that. I’ve removed it now.

    “I Believe I Can Fly” – Space Jam.

    Can’t believe that song didn’t get in. Did they snub it because of R. Kelly’s pedophilia accusations?

    I am sorry for my past behaviour. I am sorry for being a turd. I would like to try and be better.

    I have no idea. As much as I liked “I Believe I Can Fly” as a kid, it never stood out as Oscar worthy to me.

    God Help The Outcasts is, by far, the worst of the Disney snubs. It upsets me so much.

    I also wish that they’d nominated Spoonful of Sugar (or maybe even Let’s Go Fly A Kite) instead of Chim-Chim-Cheree and Part of Your World instead of Under the Sea.

    If I’m not mistaken, didn’t the R. Kelly issues not arise until the early ’00s? I just don’t think the Academy wanted to recognize a Michael Jordan-Bugs Bunny movie.

    The Saturday Night Fever songs obviously.

    I didn’t know, or forgot, that Reflection or Part of Your World weren’t a nominee. Seems so easy. I did know I Believe I Can Fly is not a nominated song, but again, why?, it looks like an easy nominee.

    And well, today of all days, it’s easy to add Pure Imagination to the list. Ridiculous that it was left out.

    I know three nominated songs is enough, and the soundtrack did win, but I Just Can’t Wait to be King is such a fun song from The Lion King.
