10 least-deserving Oscar winners for Best Original Song
'Colors of the Wind' from 'Pocahontas' (1995)
Why it didn't deserve the win: The team of Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz is pretty unstoppable, so it’s understandable why Oscar voters checked their ballots for this pretty ballad, but for it to win over Bruce Springsteen’s sober “Dead Man Walking” or the swaying “Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman” seems wrong. But what really seems incredible is that it took the award over Randy Newman’s jaunty “You’ve Got A Friend In Me” back in the days when Newman was the Susan Lucci of the Oscars.
Better choice: “You’ve Got A Friend In Me” (“Toy Story” )
