The Oscar for best original song is a garbage category – Bette Midler Proves It In One Segment

The Washington Post
The Oscar for best original song is a garbage category
By Dan Zak
March 2 at 1:42 PM

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: Phil Collins grasps his Oscar in 2000; Robin Williams performs “Blame Canada” the same year; Mariah Carey, left, and Whitney Houston perform “When You Believe” in 1999; and, from left, Peter Allen, Christopher Cross, Burt Bacharach and Carole Bayer Sager claim their shared prize in 1982.

Remember when Ann Reinking lip-synced — and danced to — “Against All Odds,” the No. 1 hit by Phil Collins from the movie of the same name, at the Academy Awards in 1985? No?

The One That Got Away: Bette Midler Hosted “Seriously Sinatra” Feb 19, On Sirius XM Radio – More Info In Article

Mister D: While I was away,sick, Bette Midler slipped out of her elegant loft to host Seriously Sinatra on Sirius XM. Not sure how long it lasted, I’ll say an hour, but I did hear bits of it this morning. It’s On Demand right now.

If you don’t have Sirius XM, you can sign up for a 30 day free try and listen to it. Not sure how long it will be up, Also I found the site hard to maneuver. After you register, just look for the damn search box and type Bette Midler in it. The show should come up. Then I think you should click On Demand, then click on her show. My dearest foreigners, I don’t think it will work for you, but Ill try to make it up to you.

Was Bette Midler Nervous About Making Her First Film, The Rose?:

Was Bette Midler Nervous About Making Her First Film, The Rose?: “Oh this isn’t my first film. I’ve never told anybody this. I never thought I’d have any reason to. But once I was an extra. I was an extra in The Detective with Frank Sinatra. And then I was an extra in…are you ready?…Goodbye Columbus. Thirty two fifty a day to and from New Rochelle to watch Ali McGraw snap at the straps of her bathing suit. Snap those straps Ali. Snap those things. (Plain Dealer, September 17, 1978)
