Here's another strange omission from the Oscars this year.

It just occurred to me that next to Oscar snubbing The Boss for his amazing song The Wrestler from the film of the same name, the Academy completely flipped two fingers up to Australia as well.

Ophelia of the Spirits' By the Boab Tree is a beautiful song from the end credits, which uses the David Hirschfelder score (derived itself from Bach's Sheep May Safely Graze). While there's no official soundtrack to the film (which is almost unheard of for a Baz Luhrmann production), you can get the full "sample" soundtrack from iTunes here.

The movie's out on DVD now, and worth checking out, especially if you have a large screen TV and possibly Blu Ray to do it justice.
