The Lyrics

Here are my tips on how you can win an Oscar. But if you really want an Oscar, do a Lord of the Rings movie.
So you want to win an Oscar Award?
You should have done Lord of the Rings
Just get a handheld camcorder
Then make some films
Independently

Flick opens Friday night
The critics are right
Your film might win that night
Yeah, just like Lord of the Rings

Get an agent, man, he'll get you roles
Get honored by the Academy
On the Red Carpet, need something to wear
And in a week or two
If you get some noms
You'll get an Oscar Award

If you do a sequel, it can't be lame
Do like Lord of the Rings
You lose, it's insane
The money, the fame, the public acclaim
Don't forget what you won
Won an Oscar Award!
Congratulations to Lord of the Rings for all of its Oscar wins!

Right on, Chris! I'm glad that LOTR got some recognition but thought that it should have only won 10 awards (hated that boring song!).

I felt they should have had the Pet Shop Boys' 'Go West' at the end of LOTR!
