The Oscar nominations are not officially announced until January 24th, but the short list for the Best Original Song has been released. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the 39 songs vying for the big prize at the Academy Awards next year. Two of Elton John’s Gnomeo & Juliet tracks — including his Lady Gaga duet, “Hello Hello” — made the list, along with multiple tracks from The Muppets. Will.i.am’s Rio track, “Hot Wings,” Mary J. Blige’s “The Living Proof” from The Help, and Zooey Deschanel’s Winnie the Pooh track, “So Long,” are all in the running.

Noticeably absent from the list is Madonna, who contributed the track “Masterpiece” to her directorial effort, W.E.

Happy Memorial Day -x- Sean Kingston -x- MTV Music News


YOUR MEMORIAL DAY HISTORY LESSON

According to HistoryChannel.com, Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day because it was a time set aside to honor the nation’s Civil War dead by decorating their graves. It was first widely observed on May 30th, 1868 to commemorate the sacrifices of Civil War soldiers. During the first celebration of Decoration Day, General James Garfield made a speech at Arlington National Cemetery, after which five-thousand participants helped to decorate the graves of the more than 20-thousand Union and Confederate soldiers buried in the cemetery. By the late 1800’s, many communities across the country had begun to celebrate Memorial Day and, after World War I, observances also began to honor those who had died in all of America’s wars. In 1971, Congress declared Memorial Day a national holiday to be celebrated on the last Monday in May. Today, Memorial Day is celebrated at Arlington National Cemetery with a ceremony in which a small American flag is placed on each grave. Also, it is customary for the president or vice-president to give a speech honoring the contributions of the dead and lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

MEMORIAL DAY FACTS
It is believed that the holiday was chosen to be in May because flowers would be in bloom all over the country. * In 1966, Congress and President Lyndon Johnson declared Waterloo, New York, the “birthplace” of Memorial Day. * It was not until after World War I, however, that the day was expanded to honor those who have died in all American wars. * Many Southern states also have their own days for honoring the Confederate dead.  * Mississippi celebrates Confederate Memorial Day on the last Monday of April, Alabama on the fourth Monday of April and Georgia on April 26th.  * North and South Carolina observe it on May 10th, Louisiana on June 3rd and Tennessee calls that date Confederate Decoration Day. * Texas celebrates Confederate Heroes Day January 19th and Virginia calls the last Monday in May Confederate Memorial Day. * The crowd attending the first Memorial Day ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery was approximately the same size as those who attend today’s observance, about five-thousand people. * The National Moment of Remembrance encourages all Americans to pause wherever they are at 3 PM local time on Memorial Day for a minute of silence to remember and honor those who have died in service to the nation.
