Blige’s “The Living Proof” was nominated for a Golden Globe, but lost out to Madonna’s “Masterpiece.” Being that Madge’s tune was ineligible to be nominated for the Academy Awards, Blige probably assumed her song would be a frontrunner in the Oscar race for Best Song. (Us, too!) However, only two songs (out of five possible slots) were nominated in this year’s race — “Man Or Muppet” from The Muppets and Rio’s “Real In Rio”.
Although Mary felt snubbed by the Academy, she still managed to deliver a gorgeous rendition of her song this morning on Live! With Kelly. (She also co-hosted the episode.) The best revenge is a knockout live TV performance, right, Mary?
