La Pfeiffer and the Original Song Oscar Race

by Nathaniel R

Here's some rather surprising news: Michelle Pfeiffer sings the closing credits song ofMurder on the Orient Express.The song is called "Never Forget"which we never in danger of doing for anything Pfeiffer.Though opinions vary about how well the goddess sings,we personally love it when she croons.Case in point:Grease 2(1982),The Fabulous Baker Boys(1989),The Prince of Egypt(1998),andHairspray(2007).Listen it's not her fault that her character inUp Close and Personal(1996) was supposed to be a bad singer or that "Miss Baltimore Crabs"isHairspray's worst song!

"Never Forget"is written by two-time Oscar nomineePatrick Doyle,a regular on Kenneth Branagh films,who also composes the score.La Pfeiffer is,of course,not the sort who would deign to sing in front of the whole world on Oscar night so they will reassign the vocals if the song is nominated.

Regardless the Original Song category is beginning to show its possible contenders so we've updatedthat chartand still suspect the leader is The Greatest Showman's catchy "This Is Me"- which was recently performed in NYC by Keala Settle & Darren Criss.

We eagerly await the full eligibility list of 80ish songs we've never heard from 40 movies we've heard of and 20 movies we didn't know existed before this always surprising list hits.
