I've said here before that I expected Jackson's RotK to haul away
wheelbarrows full of Oscars, and so it did. Many were deserved.
But others were travesties, most notably "Best Adapted Screenplay"
(for reasons that should be glaringly obvious to anybody who has
read the book more than once) and "Best Makeup" (Gimli's
silly-putty face and Old Bilbo's "Little Big Man" mask were
- THe other songs in the category were not anywhere near as well known as Into
the West. I personally liked the song well enough, but The Oscars have done
this in the past, I mean picking a song ahead of time. I remember people
saying when the film came out that it was a contender for best song, I don't
recall that being said for any of the other nomines, just like with Chicago

What I found amazing was that it won best song -- it was the most boring,
forgettable, poorly performed song. There's no way it deserved best song!
Allison Krauss was great with the two songs from "Cold Mountain" and I
really like the snappy tune from the animated short, "Triplets from
Belleville." It was cute to see Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara be
& Mickey" from "A Mighty Wind" again, but that wasn't such a good song
either, I thought -- although it was still better than "Into the West"!
