Justin Bieber An Oscar Contendah?
Never thought JBiebs would be up for an Oscar nod? Never say never. The American Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences has determined that Justin Bieber’s duet with Jayden Smith, “Never Say Never,” from “The Karate Kid” is eligible for an Oscar nom in the original song category. To be considered, a song must consist of words and music, both of which are original and written specifically for the film. It’s on a list with 41 other songs, including ditties from “Country Strong” and “Burlesque.” Now we just have to sit back and see what the Academy voters have to say on January 25. [FOX]
