Did They Get it Right? – Best Original Song – Oscars 1994


DTGIR 1994

Continuing Disney Animation’s dominance of these awards, The Lion King had 3 songs nominated this year and all 3 are much better than the other two “token” nominees IMHO.  I think Madonna’s song I’ll Remember from With Honors should have replaced one of the two non -Lion King nominees

Here are the five nominees: (Winner in Bold)

  • “Circle of Life” – The Lion King • Music: Elton John • Lyrics: Tim Rice

  • “Hakuna Matata” – The Lion King • Music: Elton John • Lyrics: Tim Rice

  • “Look What Love Has Done” – Junior • Music and Lyrics: Carole Bayer Sager, James Newton Howard, James Ingram, and Patty Smyth

  • “Make Up Your Mind” – The Paper • Music and Lyrics: Randy Newman

  • Can You Feel the Love Tonight” – The Lion King – Music: Elton John • Lyrics: Tim Rice

Song (s) that I think should have been included in the mix: (Not sure if all really are eligible according to Oscar standards…)

  • I’ll Remember – Madonna (With Honors)

  • Baby, I Love Your Way – Big Mountain (Reality Bites)

My Rankings:

Songs

  • 5. – Look What Love Has Done
  • 4. – Make Up Your Mind
  • 3. – Hakuna Matata
  • 2. – Circle of Life
  • 1. – Can You feel The Love Tonight

Movies

  • 3. – Junior
  • 2. – The Paper
  • 1. – The Lion King

Do I agree with the Oscar winner? – Yes, Can You Feel The Love Tonight is by truly the best among the nominees this year and was very deserving of the win
