"The Lorax" Is The Best Musical You Didn't See Coming
Despite now being able to say that "The Muppets" finally bagged a Best Song Oscar for a Muppets film, last years pitiful Best Song nomination count was pathetic. It's not like there weren't any good songs to nominate, the voters of that category just seemed out to lunch or something. Provided they pull their act together, then chances are one of the catchy songs from "The Lorax" seems like a good early contender for Best Song. My pick for a likely nomination is "Thneedville" (which you can listen to on Spotify above), but other people have soft spots for "How Bad Can I Be" and "Let it Grow." As usual we'll just have to wait and see.
