41 Songs Eligible for Best Original Song Oscar

The original film musical Burlesque leads the list of potential nominees for Best Original Song at the 83rd Academy Awards with three songs listed on the annual eligibility list. Films that have two songs eligible include Afghanistan’s selection for Best Foreign Film The Black Tulip, the washed up country singer movie Country Strong, and the animated blockbuster Despicable Me.

Included in the list of eligible songs are frontrunners for the Oscar “Shine” from Waiting for Superman, “You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me” from Burlesque, “We Belong Together” from Toy Story 3, “Me and Tennesee” from Country Strong, and “I See the Light” from Tangled.

  • “Never Let Me Go” from “Never Let Me Go” is a great song, too bad its ineligible.

  • AND WHAT ABOUT THE SONGS FROM “SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD”?!?!?!?!?

  • Andrew R.

    Yeah, where’s Scott Pilgrim?

  • That is a good point. Sex Ba-bomb deserved to be considered.

  • Quinn

    I agree Sex Bob Omb was fantastic. I LOVED that soundtrack. Also, I though that Never Let Me Go was pretty good too. I really hate “You Haven’t Seen The Last of Me”, “Bound to You” isn’t bad though.
