I just don't understand how you justify downgrading her for not writing the song. Actors perform material created by someone else. That's their job. And she did I hers very very well.
maybe you're misunderstanding my point. I'm not downgrading her for not writing the song and I've never once said that. I'm just calling it what it is. she did a cover of a song and did it very well. my point/opinion and purpose of this thread is that she shouldn't win an Oscar just for singing a song and making herself cry while singing it.
