U2 React To Oscar Nomination For Mandela Tribute 'Ordinary Love'
"We are humbled and honoured that 'Ordinary Love' has been nominated for an Oscar," said the band. "It was a privilege to be asked to write a song for this extraordinary film, Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, and to help tell this extraordinary love story. We have been working for this great man since we were teenagers and for our song to be recognized in this way by the Academy is beyond our wildest teenage dreams."
The band are nominated alongside Pharrell Williams' "Happy" from Despicable Me, Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer Karen O's "The Moon Song" from Her, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez for "Let It Go" from Frozen, and Bruce Broughton and Dennis Spiegel for "Alone Yet Not Alone" from the film of the same name. more on this story
