CARRIE UNDERWOOD IS ELIGIBLE FOR BEST ORIGINAL SONG OSCAR
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Carrie Underwood could pick up an Oscar for her songwriting. "There's a Place for Us" from "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" is one of 41 songs eligible for the best original song Oscar. Gwyneth Paltrow and Tim McGraw sing "Me and Tennessee" in the film "Country Strong," but it wasn't written by a country artist. It's by Chris Martin of Coldplay, Paltrow's husband. "Coming Home" from that film is also eligible. So is "Dream Big" from "Pure Country 2: The Gift." The nominees will be announced January 25, and the Oscars will be February 27.
