You're just trying to beat Dave Karger, aren't you.

I kinda hope "Barkin' at the Moon" gets a nomination because it would be rad to see Jenny perform at the Oscars, but Bruce will be enough.

I've thought about that too Red, because of my increasingly unsettling crush on Jenny Lewis. I haven't heard much buzz for her though

It's quite common for movies to get more than one song nomination (Enchanted, Dreamgirls, The Lion king, Beauty and the Beast) so this year it might be Bolt. We'll find out in an hour.
