Peter effin’ Gabriel gets the nod for Best Original Song while the Academy stiffs Springsteen’s sublime “Wrestler?” Change rings hollow, America.

  1. Thank you for this. What a song. Springsteen writes so well when he’s got a film in mind.

    The Academy has no idea what it’s doing.

  2. Have you seen the movie yet? It’s pretty great – and I’m struggling to remember a more perfect marriage of soundtrack and film.

  3. Just saw it last night. At the end of the movie, I couldn’t get up—I just sat and sang along quietly while everyone else left.

    Randy the Ram is one of my favorite characters I’ve seen on the big screen in quite a while.

    Jerry McGuire had a pretty good song on its soundtrack. So did Dead Man Walking, and Jonathan Demme’s Philadelphia. (But now I’m just being silly.)
