Bruce Springsteen To Get Wrestled To The Ground By “Twilight” Fans

May 4th, 2009 // 3 Comments

In an effort to perhaps show the world that it is Really For Real Serious About Bringing Music Back To Its Programming This Time Around, MTV has revived the Movie Awards category that honors the Best Song From A Movie. The category–last seen in 1999, and perhaps retired because Aerosmith’s wretched foray into Diane Warren territory “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing” was the winner–has four nominees this year, including one who’s way out of MTV’s target demo. The envelope before the envelope, please:

* “Jai Ho” – AR Rahman, Slumdog Millionaire (Fox Searchlight)
* “The Wrestler” – Bruce Springsteen, The Wrestler (Fox Searchlight)
* “The Climb” – Miley Cyrus, Hannah Montana: The Movie (Walt Disney Pictures)
* “Decode” – Paramore, Twilight (Summit Entertainment)

Given that the MTV Movie Awards are decided by the always-democratic process of Internet and dial-in voting, there is no way that the Twilight-affiliated Paramore song does not walk away with this “honor.”

  1. My gut is telling me Paramore should win this two but watch us all get surprised when Alaska Nebraska…er, Hannah Montana win because tweens are a sly and sneaky.

  2. @sixstars: Second that. The Hannah song is better-timed right now than the Paramore — it could totally upset.

  3. I just saw The Boss kick ass for 3 hours in Greensboro. Yeah, he won’t win, but most Bruce fans are used to it. I’m sure the Viacom connection is the only reason he’s nominated.
