Oscars To Limit Song Noms to Two Per Film, Still Doesn’t Help Odds of Winning

Posted by thelanetrain on June 20, 2008

The BBC reported today that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (better known as the people that bring you The Oscars) has instituted new rules concerning nominations for Best Song.  Starting next year, there will be a limit on two songs per film for the category, which sucks for big musical movies like Dreamgirls or Enchanted, which got 3 noms each in their years of eligibility.  What rule would we like to see?  Something that prevents an otherwise mediocre song (save for the fact that it pushes a political agenda) from beating three much better songs.
