“The Help” has been nominated for a few Academy Awards this year but not for Mary J. Blige’s singing. To many folk’s surprise, the soundtrack’s best song featuring Mary J. Blige got no Oscar love. It’s reported that Mary asked everyone to pray while the announcements were announced and was disappointed to learn that it didn’t get a nod.
You know I LOVE me some Mary J. Blige and The Help was a cool movie but… I am not sure it’s an outstanding song. I wouldn’t even buy it on iTunes. I am not sure what it did on the charts but it couldn’t have done that great. In all fairness, it probably depends on what else was nominated. The song didn’t even get any Grammy love, though.
