Much to my surprise, the Eminem song "Lose Yourself" from "8 Mile" won the Oscar for best original song in last night's academy awards ceremony. That would make it the first rap genre song to ever win an Oscar reflecting changing tastes in music. As an aside, the score to "Frida" won as best score. I saw that movie and did think the music was beautiful. I may see if the score is available on CD and buy it. I ran a thread here about a week ago asking for guesses as to what score and song would win Oscars. It really surprised me how few responses that thread received. I'm not sure if that means we have few movie fans at TalkBass or just that few folks here care about the Oscars. I'm thinking it is the latter, because the Grammies get little attention here also. Maybe the indifference to such industry awards is a good thing. Who needs someone else to tell us what music is the "best"?
