PLAYLIST FOR “AND THE OSCAR DOESN’T GO TO…” (3.3.18)

3 Mar

It’s that time again, time when a few people are smiling with happiness and others are forcing smiles on their faces when there is disappointment in their hearts. That means it’s time for the 8th Annual Turntable For One salute to the Oscar LOSERS! Every one of these songs (except the last) was nominated and lost. (Although it’s hard to imagine any song losing to “It’s Hard Out There For A Pimp.”)
