Academy Awards Best Original Song

And the Award for Best Original Song goes to......Randy Newman for the song "We Belong Together" from the movie Toy Story 3. Randy wrote the music and lyrics for the award winning song. His acceptance speech was funny. He said his percentages were bad, that he had been nominated 20 times and this was only the second win! He also said, couldn't they have found another song to nominate?? There were only 4 songs nominated, but he also said that if they nominated another song it would have beat him...

The songs nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song:
"I See the Light" from the movie,Tangled, music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Glen Slater
"If I Rise", from the movie 127 Hours, music by A.R.Rahman, lyrics by Dido and Rollo Armstrong
"Coming Home" from the movie Country Strong, music and lyrics by Tom Douglas, Troy Verges, and Hillary Lindsay
"We Belong Together", from Toy Story 3, music and lyrics by Randy Newman
