What will you choose as the winner, the nominee and neither but maybe should have been a winner. It's that time again to figure out what is what for the Oscars and I choose 1959 so let's see if you can guess who won, who was nominated and who came up empty handed.
1. STRANGE ARE THE WAYS OF LOVE SUNG BY GOGI GRANT
This is a song written by Dimitri Tiomkin with lyrics by Ned Washington that came from the film, "The Young Land" with young Patrick Wayne and Yvonne Craig. Sounds like a movie I'd like to see. Don't you love the name Gogi.
2. HIGH HOPES SUNG BY FRANK SINATRA
This song is from the film, "A Hole In The Head" where Frankie sings to a little kid to make the kid feel better. It's written by James Van Heusen and lyrics by Sammy Cahn. I have to see this flick one day, too.
3. PILLOW TALK SUNG BY DORIS DAY
I have seen this film which is a very funny movie especially by the great Thelma Ritter who plays Day's housekeeper. This was a big hit for day, written by Buddy Pepper and Inez James.
So, which song won the Oscar, which was nominated and which got nadda. This sounds familiar so if I chose this year already, forgive me... I'm beyond exhausted.
