Oscar Prediction: Song

February 27th, 2004

Today's Oscar prediction is for one of the more minor categories, which are often harder to predict than the big awards. But this year, Numbers readers seem to be of one accord on the song destined to pick up the Oscar.

Music (Song)
Into the West (Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King)  (83%)
A Kiss at the End of the Rainbow (Mighty Wind, A)  (6%)
Scarlet Tide (Cold Mountain)  (3%)
The Triplets of Belleville (Triplets of Belleville, The)  (2%)
You Will Be My Ain True Love (Cold Mountain)  (5%)

Another strong prediction for Lord of the Rings, with Into the West gaining over 80% of the votes so far. A Kiss at the End of the Rainbow from A Mighty Wind looks like the dark horse here, and could actually pull off a surprise if the academy feels it's time to recognize the mockumentary format in some small way.

Personally, Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara's performance of A Kiss at the End of the Rainbow could be one of the highlights of the night, regardless of whether it wins the award.
