Oscar Watch: Auto-tuned Musical Montage that includes Twilight’s “He Doesn’t Own a Shirt?”
One of the highlight’s of the 83rd Annual Academy Awards was a little Auto-Tune musical montage that was created by Justin Timberlake and it included:
“Tiny Ball of Light,” credited to Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger from “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1.
That number was followed by another Auto-Tune-ification, this time of Woody and the gang from “Toy Story 3,” via the funktastic “We’re Still Here.”
The song, “Fishing for Facebook,” worked the infamous “14 trout” speech into the kind of slick club come-on that might easily have been a B-side to one of Timberlake’s own albums. The piece ended with Timberlake dropping his signature line, “A million dollars isn’t cool, you know what’s cool?” over a driving beat, then pausing a moment and adding: “a billion dollars.”
Just to make sure they snagged the kids, the musical tribute ended with “He Doesn’t Own a Shirt,” a pretend slow jam from “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” in which a jealous Edward Cullen sneers, “Doesn’t he own a shirt,” at romantic (and, yes, shirtless and ripped) rival Jacob Black. In the background, a group of female singers explained, “He’s too sexy for a shirt” and “She’s so glad he doesn’t have a shirt” as Bella Swan embraces her werewolf pal.
Between this and Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr.(who Anne Rice wants to play Lestat) presenting two awards…
They are my vote for Monday Morning Hotness!!!
The awards were not as bad as in year’s past, still long though!
