Nominations for film songs and missing nominations

  • The Grammys and the Oscars often go hand in hand. 1994 was noteworthy because three of the songs nominated were from films. Victory went to Bruce Springsteen Streets of Philadelphia.
  • Some of the world's biggest artists have never been recognised nor nominated. The Rolling Stones, Madonna, David Bowie and Queen have never been nominated. Sinead O'Connor's version of Nothing Compares To You was Prince's only nomination.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
