The show’s producers said none of the nominees were invited to sing at the March 7 awards ceremony. Randy Newman’s totally wry and bemused about this. More at EW, including a clip of Elliott Smith’s memorable, jarring performance at the ’98 Oscars.
This makes sense to me. I mean, they don’t have the Best Actor nominees recreate their performance live.
i disagree because nobody wants to see a scene recreated, but a song is usually short and complete and is great build up for the award (especially if someone like elliott is nominated or three 6 mafia for a little contrast).
