10 least-deserving Oscar winners for Best Original Song
'Talk To The Animals' from 'Doctor Dolittle' (1967)
Why it didn't deserve the win: In the case of the dueling animal movies, the live action “Doctor Dolittle’s” “Talk to the Animals” beat out Disney cartoon “The Jungle Book’s” “The Bare Necessities,” though the latter has certainly proven to be the classic tune of the pair. But more erroneously, Oscar voters chose “Talk To The Animals” over the lush “The Look Of Love,” written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David. “Love” received a little love from another august body, however. In 2008, it was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
Better choice: “The Look Of Love” (“Casino Royale”)
