THERE’S NO CHANCE BEYONCE’ WILL GET AN OSCAR THIS YEAR!
As The Insite first told you several weeks ago there was controversy over a song (Listen) Houston native Beyonce’ co-wrote for the movie Dreamgirls but her name didn’t appear in the credits. Now that the song is being nominated for an Oscar her name is still missing. I’m told Oscar rules state only three names can be listed in credits for an Oscar nominated song – my only theory is Beyonce’s contribution may have been so insignificant that the trio of writers left her name on the cutting room floor. By the way Jennifer Hudson and Eddie Murphy were both nominated for their supporting roles in the movie musical!
The Official nomination:
“Listen” from “Dreamgirls”
(DreamWorks and Paramount)
Music by Henry Krieger and Scott Cutler
