Wow, apparently the three nominations for Dreamgirls songs split the vote, because there's no way anyone could have guessed that the INCONVENIENT TRUTH song would win the Oscar. I'm no fan of Dreamgirls, but its three original songs obviously play a more important role in the film itself, and I'd say they're on the par with the mediocre Broadway pap that made up the original production. (How's *that* for a backhanded compliment?) If you picked Etheridge and have any official documentation to that effect, please share with the group.
