DYLAN’S WINNING ‘THINGS’

The rock legend triumphs over Bjork and Sting in the Best Song category...

BOB DYLAN won the OSCAR for BEST ORIGINAL SONG last night (March 25) – and accepted the award live via satellite from SYDNEY.

The rock veteran is currently on tour in Australia and accepted the award for his track, ‘Things Have Changed’, from the movie ‘Wonder Boys’, saying: “Oh good God. This is amazing.”

It is the second gong the song has netted this year, having already been honoured at the Golden Globes.

The star triumphed over Bjork, – who performed ‘I’ve Seen It All’ from the soundtrack to ‘Dancer In The Dark’ at the ceremony at Los Angeles Shrine Auditorium.

Other nominees in the Best Song category included Sting, Randy Newman and Tan Dun, Jorge Calandrelli and James Schamus who were nominated for ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’.

Dun did take home award for Best Original Score for the martial arts movie, however.

Performers at the 73rd annual Academy Awards ceremony included Sting, Randy Newman, Susanna Hoffs ex- lead singer of The Bangles, and Dylan, who sang his award-winning track live by satellite.
