If you are as obsessed as we are when it comes to predicting the Oscars, you’ve probably already began predicting the awards for next year. If so, then you’ll probably be jotting down Mariah Carey’s name as a contender in the Original Song field after learning that she will be recording the end song for Oz The Great and Powerful. Now we all know it is foolishness to be predicting the awards this far out, but when did that ever stop us from having our fun, right? With the recent changes the Academy’s music branch has enforced, it seems we will be more and more likely to see big stars in this category in the foreseeable future (think: Adele and Norah Jones this year). So while it is way too soon to know anything (especially without having even heard the song), can you envision Ms. Carey as an Oscar nominee?
Lover of all things film and Oscar. Fantasy sports’ equivalent of George Steinbrenner. Your very own Han Solo, making friends all over the movie-loving galaxy in spite of himself. When he’s not ranking just about everything or dominating boardgames, Mark is breaking down the Oscar race 24/7 with Rain Man-like stats and knowledge. In his downtime, you can find him commiserating with other Northeast Ohio sports fans because a hero isn’t complete without a little heartbreak. If Game of Thrones, Lost, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Survivor are your style, then congratulations, you have something in common with this inglourious basterd.
