Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs: Oscar nominee.
Yesterday the Academy Award nominees were announced, and Spike Jonze’s film Her was nominated for four awards: Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Original Score (cheers to Win Butler of Arcade Fire!) and Best Original Song. Karen O wrote the music, and Spike is credited with the lyrics.
So enjoy this wistful little tune from the film Her. Here’s hoping we can add Karen O to the list of Oscar winners come March 2. Because if U2’s lame song wins (and it’s so milquetoast, even for U2), we’ll never hear the end of it from Bono.
