Madonna's Masterpiece Isn't Eligible For An Oscar For Best Song

Madonna masterpiece oscar

Such a bummer!

Madonna's Golden Globe winning song Masterpiece is not eligible to be nominated for an Academy Award!

Madge's manager broke the news to her fans with a tweet reading:

"Madonna's Golden Globe award winning song 'Masterpiece' from W.E. does not qualify for an Oscar as it did not meet eligibility requirements."

The requirements are pretty minimal, but a technicality threw a monkey wrench in the Material Girl's Oscar dreams.

According to the Academy, songs must "consist of words and music, both of which are original and used specifically for the film; and be used either in the body of the film, or as the "first music cue" in the closing credits."

The only thing preventing a nomination is the fact that the song is the second, not the first, featured in the film's closing credits!

Talk about a "D'oh!"

It's a damn shame Madonna and the producers of her film didn't think of this before they released it! After all, the Queen of Pop has done just about EVERYTHING except win an Oscar.

Oh well. She's got plenty of years left and we're confident this won't be the last song she writes for a film that isn't up for award consideration!

    What?!!? And the Academy is not going to make an exception just for MADGE!!!! Horrors! Sir Elton John is laughing his ass off. Talk about a sophomore screw up. Didn't she direct the movie? That would give her he influence to place the music where she wishes, correct? Can't wait to see her tired re-run of old hits during this years Superbowl. Both Gaga and Sir Elton will be laughing their asses off after that performance!

    hahahahaha, how stupid… basically she let the closing credits appear first b4 the start of the music. what a fucking newbie!! normally in closing credits you see a few seconds of blank screen, then the music starts, then followed by the credits. damn, that might mean elton gets an oscar com feb…

    The Academy would not vote for her anyways.

    What about "You Must Love Me" from Evita?
    Didn't it win Best Song at the Oscars?

    Re: Sunset Butterfly – Best original song is credited to the writer(s), in this case Tim Rice & Andrew Lloyd Webber. The performer would have to contribute music/lyrics to be awarded.

    Re: lington – I personally think Mary J. Blige should be nominated and win the Oscar. Sir Elton IMO should not even lower himself to being in a feud with Madonna. She will NEVER match his MUSICAL achievements. With the exception of "Ray Of Light" Her music is pure pop fluff. Madonna is still around because she's the whore of reinvention who f—ked her way to the top. BTW—she is starting to look "less fresh" in the face IMO….old and hard. Just take a good look at the pic on this post. OLD not virginal. Lol

    Re: astroboy – she looks a amazing 4 her age..menwhile elton looks like a lesbian gramma

    Hahaha, it's so good that her shitty song won't be nominated. There are way better artists out there who'd deserve it!

    Re: Sunset Butterfly – Yes, "You must love me" won an Oscar. So did a song from Dick Tracy. On both, the awards do not belong to Madonna, she was just the performer whose versions were nominated - the songwriters are the ones being nominated and/or winning the award.
    However, I still think Madonna's film can get a few nominations: best art direction, best costume, best original score, and best direction (the camera work in the film is amazing). Also, Andrea Riseborough deserves a nomination for her performance as Wallis Simpson.

    Those are pretty much bullshit eligibility requirements, IMO…It's a GREAT song…Must be used in the body of the song or as the "first music cue" in the closing credits?… Whatever. I'm sure it's not breaking her heart anyway. "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" didn't get a single acting nomination? Not to mention Best Picture? Give me a freaking break. It was better than at least 1/2 the movies up for best picture.

    Re: Stephanie Germanotta – Paws up your ass…Jesus Christ. "Masterpiece" is SO much better than "Lady" GagGags hilarious attempts at ballads. There is NO comparison.
