Cher On ‘Burlesque’ Oscar Snub
When it came to the Golden Globes over a week ago, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Cher[/lastfm]‘s survival anthem You Haven’t Seen The Last Of Me from the movie Burlesque picked up a trophy for songwriter [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Diane Warren[/lastfm]. The song also gave Cher her first #1 Billboard hit for 2011, making her a recipient of at least one top charting song in the past six decades.
But alas, when the Oscar noms came out yesterday, You Haven’t Seen The Last Of Me was nowhere to be found on the list of Academy Award-nominated Best Songs. What did Cher have to say about this?
Cher took to her Twitter account after the nominations came out and 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 !
It didn’t end there though, as Cher then began to respond to others who felt she was “whining” about the absent nomination. Never one to mince words, here was Cher’s reaction to one of her critics:
Up Yours Dude ! xxxxCHER
The nominated songs are as follows:
- “Coming Home” from “Country Strong” Music and Lyric by Tom Douglas, Troy Verges and Hillary Lindsey
- “I See the Light” from “Tangled” Music by Alan Menken Lyric by Glenn Slater
- “If I Rise” from “127 Hours” Music by A.R. Rahman Lyric by Dido and Rollo Armstrong
- “We Belong Together” from “Toy Story 3″ Music and Lyric by Randy Newman
We have to admit, we’re on Cher’s side on this one. Country Strong??? Sheesh!
