Exactly.

It could've been that banal Paul Simon song. Or another Chicago win. :p

I agree...when the nominees were being listed, I said to my boyfriend, "If U2 gets the shaft, I hope Eminem gets it."

Coz to be honest, they are the only two that deserved even a nomination. I mean c'mon, the Wild Thornberries??? Can we say "mercy fuck"??? And Chicago...well, it may have been a good movie, but still...if U2 couldn't have the shiny gold man, I'm glad Eminem has it.

I must say... I am very mixed on this.

One: all the boys were there! And their other halves!! I have never seen that happen before. This was actually a big deal to U2, which says alot! I mean, we all know how much Larry hates Award shows and all...

Two: Yes, Lose Yourself is a great rap song... I have it... I love it... but

Three: The point of a music section in the Oscars is different then say, The Grammy's. You see, the whole point of writing a song to a movie is to encapsulate the mood, vibe, and texture of the movie... tell something about it. While Lose Yourself was obviously an Eminem song to an Eminem movie, lyrically, it's just basically Em singing what he knows best about... himself. Quite frankly, it has nothing to do with the whole concept of why there is a Best Original Song section in the Oscar's to begin with... He got awarded an Oscar for writing a catchy song, not, in my opinion, telling the feelings of a movie through song...

So yeah... U2 got robbed. If it was the Grammy's perhaps I would find it less disturbing. The Academy, I feel, just wanted to show they were open to other forms of music. In other words, it's political folks... and like politics, the public gets screwed...
