Oscar Nominated Songs

ID : 8093   
« back to classes page

Since 1934, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) has recognized one song written specifically for films released during the previous calendar year as worthy of an Oscar.  Past winners have included such wonderful numbers as "Moon River," "It Might As Well Be Spring," "All the Way," and "Over the Rainbow." However many other great songs such as "Unchained Melody," “My Foolish Heart," and "An Affair to Remember," although nominated, failed to be recognized as the best in a particular year.  Class will view archival video clips of the actual presenters and recipients for several dozens of these classic songs as well as experience many of the original artists’ renditions as they were first introduced to movie audiences.
