Burlesque Snub? Does Not Compute!

Cher is no stranger to the Oscar acceptance speech. She won for Best Actress in 1988 for Moonstruck. Well, she must have been practicing for another one, because when her Golden Globe-winning song, You Haven't Seen the Last of Me from Burlesque, didn't garner an Oscar nod, she took to social media to complain.

Cher

Cher has been nominated for an Oscar, won an Oscar and had a decades-spanning career. She's an icon. She doesn't need a last name. Though her recent musical film Burlesque didn't get the greatest reviews, her song, You Haven't Seen the Last of Me won the Golden Globe for Best Song. It also grabbed a bunch of nominations for a bunch of other awards.

Cher decided to take to Twitter to express her disappointment over the snub. But did she take the low road? No. This lady stayed classy as always. Her first tweet was, "We didn't get a nomination 4 best song! That sucks! Diane's song Is so beautiful! It's hard to understand how u win."

She then said, "The Golden Globe 4 BEST SONG & not even get nominated by the Oscars? Oh well it is..what it is. The sun is still shining!"

She continued (since Twitter only allows a rant of 140 characters at a time), "Maybe she would have had a better chance if someone else was singing it?!! IT JUST CANT B HER SONG."

An understandable complaint, right? I certainly think so, especially after a Golden Globe win. She seemed to be a bit surprised at herself, because she self-corrected by tweeting, "Was looking at my last tweets! Boy I suck at this! Always going over! I don't think short! No Abbreviations! I don't know that many!"

What do you guys think? Did she go too far? Do you agree that it was a snub? Let us know below.

Of course it was a snub, and Cher has every right to feel that way. A song is only as good as the SUPERSTAR who sings it...and no one could have done this song justice better than Cher. Plus the song's performance in the movie should have gotten the nom alone! Cher...we all know who is the best!

I'm sure there are plenty of other artists that feel they were should have been nominated as well
