Why Not Me?

The Lonely Island (Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone) was commissioned to write a song for this year's Oscar ceremonies. They came up with an amazing tune called "Why Not Me?" about the stars and movies that weren't nominated, which were the ones we liked the most anyway. But the song was rejected because of all the star power that would have been involved in producing it. "Too expensive," they said. Sad!

But we have the demo song, with a video The Lonely Island cobbled together from the storyboards. It's a gem, and would have been a highlight of the broadcast. -via Uproxx
