Original Song 2003

"Into the West," from The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King; music and lyrics by Fran Walsh, Howard Shore and Annie Lennox.

PRO: "Here comes the Reign Again"

CON: Credits include your musical director, a pop diva, and one of the screenwriters; where's the art director and the elf wrangler when you need them?

"A Kiss at the End of the Rainbow," from A Mighty Wind; music and lyric by Michael McKean and Annette O'Toole.

PRO: Funny folk music much more bearable than real folk music

CON: We still miss Squiggy.

"Scarlet Tide," from Cold Mountain; music and lyric by T Bone Burnett and Elvis Costello

PRO: Finally, Elvis nominated for the Oscar he was so shamefully skipped over for Austin Powers

CON: Even as long-time T Bone Burnett fans, we didn't notice this song amid dismal interminable movie

"The Triplets of Belleville," from The Triplets of Belleville; music by Benoit Charest, lyrics by Sylvain Chornet.

PRO: Song named after movie so it must be good

CON: Not quite the "When you Believe" or "Beauty and the Beast" powerhouse Americans expect from their animated films

"You Will Be My Ain True Love," from Cold Mountain; music and lyrics by Sting.

PRO: At least we sorta remember this song

CON: Cold Mountain only had two song noms because it was nineteen hours long; with nominees Lennox and Costello, Sting makes a good case this category should be renamed "I Love the '80s"
