“The Weary Kind” is a Shoe In for Original Song!

Well the Academy Awards are coming to town on Sunday night. Obviously, Avatar will sweep many of the categories. I`m looking at music related categories this morning, and I suspect that Avatar will win in Sound Editing and Sound Mixing. Inglourious Bastards, you might remember, pulled some punches to your eardrums too. Avatar will probably win in Original Score also. I`ve only seen half of the movie so far?

For Original Song I think The Weary Kind (Theme From Crazy Heart) is a shoe in. That entire soundtrack is a must have for all of us. The movie-muse is with T-Bone Burnett! It will be interesting to take a look at the sales figures for this soundtrack after say, one month. I do wonder why a song from Up In the Air, Goin` Home by Dan Auerbach, was not included in the Original Song category.

Okay, so Up In the Air and Crazy Heart are my two favorite films for 2009. I`m no Avatar NUT myself, but what can you do. I`ll root for the underdogs and good tunes anytime!

“Expecting a nice surprise under their tree this year, studio distributors instead got the equivalent of a luxury car with a giant bow on it Friday, as the domestic box-office shattered last year’s Christmas Day record with an enormous $85 million haul.” The Wrap

“Avatar” and “Sherlock Holmes” took in most of the money with ‘Holmes at $25M and ‘Avatar’ at $23.3M.

What did you see at the movies on Christmas???
