You’ve read all about the Oscar snubs, but what about the snub that’s also a…FLUB?!? The Academy Award for Best Original Song doesn’t get the same recognition as whichever categories Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams are in, nor should it, not after this year’s nominees. “Let It Go” from Frozen is great, one of Disney’s best ballads in a decade, but the best song from the best movie of 2013 (100% agree) was completely ignored. UH OH.
I mean, sure, it wasn’t eligible…but dear god, Bono’s going to win, isn’t he?
