Re: 2012 Academy Award Nominations

from the article

“The Living Proof” from The Help (Mary J. Blidge, Thomas Newman, Damon Thomas, Harvey Mason Jr.)
“Life’s A Happy Song” from The Muppets (Bret McKenzie)
“Love Builds A Garden” and “Hello Hello” from Gnomeo And Juliet (Elton John, Bernie Taupin)
“Pictures In My Head” from The Muppets (Jeannie Lurie, Aris Archontis, Chen Neeman)
“Lay You Head Down” from Albert Nobbs (Glenn Close, Brian Byrne sung by Sinead O’Connor)
(Madonna’s song from W.E. wasn’t eligible…)

The Academy Music Branch’s weird voting system, where an 8.5 is required for at least one song to be nominated and anywhere from 2 to 5 can make the cut, showed just how endangered this category is with a record low of only two nominations in what was a pretty good year for movie songs. Another head-scratcher.
i don't get it. what two songs are actually nominated? They list a handful of songs here but only two were nominated. am I missing something?
We can go from boom to bust -From dreams to a bowl of dust- We can fall from rockets' red glare- Down to "Brother can you spare..." Another war, Another wasteland ..And another lost generation
