I didn't know Tom Cruise was nominated (deserved, I think) but was pleasantly surprised that one of Aimee Mann's songs was as well. But what's this? "Save Me" nominated? How could "Wise Up" not be nominated? What sort of cruel injustice was this? Even crueler: that effing hack Phil Collins won that year for some song in Tarzan (Disney, never saw it).
A few clicks told me why the haunting "Wise Up" wasn't in: the nomination was for original song, and "Wise Up" was in "Jerry Maguire" a couple years earlier. (Remember it? Me neither...) It makes sense because all the Cameron Crowe movies have great soundtracks. (I don't remember whether Vanilla Sky did because it's permanently blocked from ever surfacing in my head again. Yuck.)
