The Lyrics

His name was Forest
He was an actor
Played the ultimate Scottish king,
His name: Idi Amin
Then all the critics
Said he was awesome;
"We'll all rant and rave and fret
If he won't get the statuette"

So the Academy
Made him a nominee
But is he gonna win?
We'll have to wait and see

At the Oscars
Oscar Awards show
The craziest night I just can't ignore-o
Here at the Oscars, Oscar Awards show
Gowns by the dozen and E! News a-buzzing
At the Oscars

Her name was Helen
She was an actress
Stealing every single scene
As Her Majesty the Queen
She was a natural
As was expected
After playing Elizabeth 1 with ease
Being queen looked like a breeze

Her acting was so grand
The film could not be panned
Let's hope tonight she walks off
With her golden man

At the Oscars
Oscar Awards show
The craziest night I just can't ignore-o
Here at the Oscars, Oscar Awards show
Gowns by the dozen and E! News a-buzzing
At the Oscars

His name was Martin
He's a director
With eyebrows like Groucho Marx
And films that are quite dark
Made "The Departed"
The critics loved it
Are you feeling lucky, Clint?
'Cause Martin might finally win

Jen Hudson: Perfect 10
Volver was muy bien
And to think that in just one year, we'll do it all again

At the Oscars
Oscar Awards show
The craziest night I just can't ignore-o
Here, at the Oscars, Oscar Awards show
Gowns by the dozen and E! News a-buzzing
At the Oscars

A statuesque parody. I'm gonna have to do better than that pun, if not better than this parody, when I do my annual "Bjork Awards" parody, making fun of the outfits. Maybe I can sneak in a line about Jack wearing shades indoors. Maybe Tom will make Katie wear a polyester abomination just because it was designed by a Scientologist. Maybe Helen will wear something low-cut and remind everyone that this is not 1981, when she was so freaking hot in "Excalibur." Maybe Forrest will show up in his Idi Amin uniform and scare the $#:+ out of everybody!
