The Last Ten Best Original Song Oscar Winners

I guess it’s music week here at Unreality, as I really have just felt like jamming to some movie tunes the past few days. First it was Hans Zimmer, then yesterday I was reminded of the fantastic musical film Once, and now today I’m doing a sort of best of music post. Well, best of according to the Academy at least. You can make your own judgments.

These are in fact the ten songs to win “Best Original Song” at the last ten Oscars. There are a number of good tracks in there, and there are Randy Newman songs, also known as the “Well no one else really tried” award.

It is a really diverse list, as yes, the Three 6 Mafia and Eminem have both won Oscars. Check out the full tracklist below, and guess at what might win next year.

Fun thing to do: Go through and play them all at once. You are now a DJ.
