.....Randy Newman.......Whatever.........

Randy Newman's "Toy Story 3" song "We Belong Together" had its critics, including Roger Ebert. Yet even if the song sticks to the formula of his past work for Pixar/Disney, Newman can still be an unpredictable cat when it comes to giving an acceptance speech, repeatedly saying he wanted to make "good television" and did not want to read a list of thank-yous, Newman succeeded, asking why Oscar voters gave the song category a short shrift. "They only nominate four songs?" Newman said. "What about cinematographers? There's five. They could find a fifth song from someone, but hell with it. I think it might have beat me."
