RYAN BINGHAM: OSCAR NOMINEE
After winning a Golden Globe for "The Weary Kind" from the film Crazy Heart, today Ryan Bingham received an Oscar nomination for the song. He's up against two Randy Newman songs, both from The Princess and The Frog, "Almost There" and "Down In New Orleans." Also nominated: a song called "Loin de Paname" from a film I never heard of called Paris 36 and from the film Nine, "Take It All." Also up for an Oscar is Jeff Bridges, who played "Bad Blake" in Crazy Heart, he already won the Golden Globe for that role. I know he has had like four Oscar noms, but has never won. Maybe this will be his year.
Anyway, dig the above video: it is Ryan Bingham doing a solo acoustic version of "The Weary Kind" on SIRIUS XM's Outlaw Country.
