Randy Newman Wins Oscar For Best Original Song

Tonight, Randy Newman was his second Oscar at the 83rd Academy Awards for Best Original Song. The song, We Belong Together was from the film “Toy Story 3″, and both the music and lyrics were written by Randy Newman. Not only did Newman write the music and lyrics, he also sang it in the film!

This was his 20th Oscar nomination. He won his other Oscar in 2002 for his original song If I Didn’t Have You from “Monsters, Inc.” In early February, he also earned a Grammy Award for “Score soundtrack album for motion picture, television or other visual media” for “Toy Story 3.”

Newman was out against competitors Tom Douglas, Troy Verges and Hillary Lindsey for “Coming Home” from “Country Strong,” Alan Menken and Glenn Slater for “I See the Light” from “Tangled” and A.R. Rahman, Dido and Rollo Armstrong for “If I Rise” from “127 Hours.”
