No Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross?

Setting aside Purple Rain, that's basically a list of underwhelming songs from a bunch of (mostly) good musicians.

Don't forget Mark Knopfler was up for a song in The Princess Bride.  The song kind of sucked so he got money for nothing.  But I bet when he was in Hollywood, he got his chicks for free.

Interestingly, "Purple Rain" wasn't even nominated for Best Original Song but was for Best Original Song Score.

maybe it's because I'm not a song writer but it kinda feels like there are too many award categories

"Lost in the shuffle was Elliott Smith's stab at his own "The Sound Of Silence" with the nominated 'Miss Misery.'" Really? That's the writer's choice of words? Apparently not an Elliot Smith fan considering how the man died. Or doesn't know how to use this newfangled whatchamacallit called Wikipedia.

Yeah, nothing was going to back a "Dirty Dancing" song into a corner.

Yeah, rude choice of words there. Almost impossible that it wasn't intentional.

And "Miss Misery" is a damn fine song which doesn't owe anything to Simon & Garfunkel. I don't get why the comparison was made. Love both artists, though.
