Which songs from 'High School Musical 3: Senior Year' will Oscars voters prefer?

November 21, 2008 | 11:53 am

There are so many strong songs in "High School Musical 3: Senior Year" that Disney doesn't know which ones to trumpet in their Oscar campaign for best song. Remember, the rules are different this year. While the Mouse House was able to score three nominations last year for tunes from "Enchanted," the most bids any one film can reap now is two. Theoretically, to keep things simple, the studio should inform voters which two songs those should be, but the best it can do is narrow the choices down to four.

These four songs are being officially campaigned for "High School Musical 3: Senior Year" — "Can I Have This Dance?" (written by Adam Anders and Nikki Hassman, sung by Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens), "I Want It All" (written by Matthew Gerrard and Robbie Nevil, sung by Ashley Tisdale and Lucas Grabeel), "A Night to Remember" (written by Matthew Gerrard and Robbie Nevil, sung by film cast) and "Scream" (written by Jamie Houston, sung by Zac Efron).

When I asked our message-board posters which song has the best shot to be nominated and win, I got a lot of cynical replies from snarky non-fans of the "High School Musical" franchise who harrumphed, "None!" Ah, well, others were more helpful.

Kams says, "My favorite song is 'I Want It All,' but, since I have seen the movie, I have the feeling that 'Can I Have This Dance?' will be nominated."

Dr. McPhearson agrees, adding, "'I Want It All' would be the easiest choice were I an Oscar voter: it references show-biz, paparazzi, and even makes a mention of Oscar (when Grabeel says, 'And the Oscar goes to...'). It is most likely going to be the nominated one, if any."

What do you think?

A night to remember, la cancion es cheverisima y la corogreafia ni que hablar todo es chevere en esta cancion para mi criterio esta es la mejor, claro que Can i have this dance is nice too, but I decide to "A night to remember"

Can I have this dance, and Scream. I love all the songs in the movie, but I really love those two. Imagine Zac and Vanessa performing Can I have this dance?! Now how cute a Zanesa moment would that be?!
I also read that the song High School Musical was up in the runnings?!

I would love to see them perform Can I have This Dance? It would be the number 1 Zanessa moment!!! And love them to win the Oscar!

I want it all..is a great song!!!! is original....is my favorite... apart of a night to remember, is very nice too!!

can i have this dance... simple y claro, es una cancion tan romantica, y me encantaria que los dos protagonistas ganaran ese premio tan importante.

Can I Have This Dance?"

I want it all! Please!

I'm from Argentina and that song is soo amazing!

Please!

I want it all!

Can I have This dance!!! I love It!! Zanessa Are the best!! (L)

I WANT IT ALL AND A NIGH TO REMEMBER THE BEST!

I pick Can I have this dance because I love it. Also Zac and Vanessa would have to perform it live. Last year all the nominated songs were performed. Think of what a Zanessa moment that would be!!!
