Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks.
It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme.
It’s the first Thursday of the month which means it is time for our Oscars Winners Edition. Today we’re going to cover best original as well as best original song. I bring you three picks for each!
I actually saw this one in theatres and was blown away by the beauty of the soundtrack!
#2 The Hateful Eight
So, did you know that Ennio Morricone only won one Oscar and it’s for The Hateful Eight? Long overdue.
#3 Lord of the Rings 1 & 3
I’ve mentioned these movies a lot before but there are just so many amazing details about them. LOTR won this particular Academy Award for the first and third films and those are such deserved wins.
#1 8 Mile
As for Lose Yourself from 8 Mile, I always liked the song and was really happy that Eminem finally got to perform it at the Academy Awards last year.
#2 Beauty And the Beast
There had to be at least one Disney song on this list. Many of the tunes won Oscars but I think my favorite one is from Beauty and the Beast.
#3 Dirty Dancing
Think of this movie what you will, but the soundtrack is iconic!
What’s your favorite winner for best original score and best song? Let me know in the comments!
