The Felixes

Or, the Anti-Oscars.TM

Original song 2000

"Fool in Love," from Meet the Parents

PRO: After 14 nominations, Randy Newman pretty much has this gig down.

CON: Suffers, in our minds, simply by not being the Joe Jackson song.

"I've Seen It All," from Dancer in the Dark

PRO: Actually a good song; this category not a bad place to recognize on the best movies of the year, which mysteriously failed to get other nominations.

CON:Bjork? And the Academy? and Joan Rivers on the pre-game show? It's like matter and some kind of weird anti-matter that might blow up the world.

"A Love Before Time," from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

PRO: This magical movie could have a big year and sweep everything, including this category, in its path.

CON: Song not at all central to movie; was every bit as memorable as annoyingly generic title suggests.

"My Funny Friend and Me," from The Emperor's New Groove

PRO: Sting. Disney. Oscar-o-polis.

CON: The director of this movie went out of his way to get the Sting songs away from his flick. Why second-guess him?

"Things Have Changed," from Wonder Boys

PRO: Catchy tune. Younger academy voters will be pleased to find Jakob Dylan's dad is actually a pretty good songwriter. And maybe he'll escort Bjork.
CON: He could change religions during the acceptance speech or something.
