Justin Bieber may win an Oscar?

Justin Bieber:
Oscar Winner?

The awards season announcements keep on coming. This week, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences released its list of songs eligible for the Best Original Song Oscar. Some names on the list are no surprise such as Alan Menken, the Tangled composer, who is probably running out of room on his mantle for Oscars. But there is one name on there you might not expect: Justin Bieber. Bieber may just be able to add winning an Oscar to his list of things "I've done before the age of 20."

Justin Bieber and Oscar?

Justin Bieber may win an Oscar. Whether you think that's wonderful or one of the first signs of the impending apocalypse, it's certainly news.

This week, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences released its list of the 41 songs eligible for a Best Original Song award. The rules for the award state that the song must "consist of words and music, both of which are original and written specifically for the film," and "a clearly audible, intelligible, substantive rendition of both lyric and melody must be used in the body of the film, or as the first music cue in the end credits."

It looks like Bieber's duet with Jaden Smith for The Karate Kid, Never Say Never, fits in those guidelines. Aw, wouldn't it be cute if they gave them both little teeny tiny Oscars like the ones they gave Walt Disney for Snow White? Just kidding guys!

Bieber and Smith are competing against the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, who is nominated for two of her songs from Country Strong, Cher and Christina Aguilera's offerings from Burlesque, and songs from Toy Story 3 and the Alan Menken-composed Tangled. Looks like they have some stiff competition.

If Bieber does win, he'll have to add a chapter to his memoir. The 83rd Academy Awards will be broadcast live from the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday, February 27.

I personally think it would be fantastic if Justin Bieber won an Oscar. noneur buisness - just because he's a teen sensation and because he is new at this, doesn't mean that he shouldn't win won. It just means that he is good enough to win one. He has worked hard to get where he is so he totally deserves and has fair game to get one.

• United states has become so ist, United States violates the rights of women around the world? I am Latina, I do not speak English forgiving. Use translator. Formerly the village women's liberation. Before respected intelligent women today make fun of them. The country of freedom has become the country most ist of all. Now they are even more ist than here in Latin America. Everyone thought that American men were good and faithful BUT ALL WE ARE ADVISED THAT SINCE THE WORST. Example: Before Brad Pitt was a role model for me, but since he deceived his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston fell off my pedestal and all blond hypocrites. They are the most ist, but the propaganda that they are the best. What do you appreciate America? Feminine beauty and feelings more or less Just as Angelina Jolie. But that too was done in the Middle Ages, only appreciated women for their beauty and nothing else. What's twilight? America is the cradle of the most ist saga of the world. A woman who is beautiful as Bella Swan, has good feelings and stupid. What is appreciated in the Middle Ages. Please, that fell to the middle ages. Men of the Middle Ages only admired pretty women of good feelings and having no brain. And you Americans returned to the Middle Ages. Intelligent and decent women should have at least the same respect as the most beautiful. I am Latina, I do not speak English forgiving. Use translator.
