well, I think its only a clip of the song but the song none the less.

If I recall, the thornberries song and Lose Yourself were up against the band for the Golden Globe -- and lost.

I just saw they got the nomination a few minutes ago I'd say it's a good chance they'll win.. it's hard to say what the biggest contender is though.

Nominated songs on Oscar night are performed live!!

So U2 should be there to perform which would be so awesome!

I hope they win!!

However, one should not compare the Globes to Oscars. There are sometimes many differences in who wins between the two. Just because they won at the Globes doesn't mean they have it in the bag!

Plus, they are up against a new "Chicago" song which they weren't in The Globe race!

Usually the pattern is who wins at the Golden Globes has a pretty good chance of winning an Oscar.

I think the only competition U2 has for the Oscar is the song from Chicago. The Academy seems to be absolutely in love with that movie. It got 13 nominations! Of course Gangs of New York got a ton of nominations too, and U2 did win the Golden Globe, so...

I agree about Chicago being the competition. My thought is that those who vote for Chicago as best picture may also do so for the song since it was a musical. The Globes are a good indication of who will most likely win but you never know about the Academy. I think they stand a good chance though. *crossing fingers*

I was peeved to see the Chicago song nominated. I didn't realize there were any songs specifically writeen for the movie, so I didn't figure the movie would have any nominations for best song.

If it wasn't for Chicago, I'd say the biggest competition was Eminem, but Eminem has about as much of a chance as the South Park guys did a few years back, which is to say: not much of a chance, because of the voters.

However, last year they gave it to Randy Newman after years of being nominated and never winning. Maybe they'll feel the same about Paul Simon this year (even though this is his first nomination, believe it or not).

My hope is that the voters will give everything else under the sun to Chicago and make room for U2 for best song. As much as I think Chicago rocks, that song certainly isn't one of the ones I've been singing for the past month.
