List of Oscar Contending Songs Does Not Include Anvil


The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences released the list of 63 songs that will be vying for nominations for best original song. Five songs from Hannah Montana the Movie appear on the list along with four from The Princess and the Frog. It's hard not to notice that there's not a single Anvil song on the list. Sure, none of the songs from Anvil! The Story of Anvil actually qualify (lyrics and music must be written specifically for the film), but there couldn't be a better excuse to break the rules than "Metal on Metal." [THR]
