“Peaches” from ‘The Super Mario Bros. Movie’ Will Be Eligible for Best Original Song at the Oscars

No matter how much someone liked or didn’t like The Super Mario Bros. Movie this past weekend, it seems nearly everyone is united in enjoying the song “Peaches” that Jack Black‘s Bowser sings. Well, not only is it capturing the attention of audiences, Universal is hoping that it will eventually catch on with Oscar voters in the Best Original Song category.

According to Variety, Universal has confirmed that “Peaches” will be eligible. Now, a campaign may not be a sure-thing, but stranger nominations have happened. So, look for The Super Mario Bros. Movie to at least be hoping the Academy notices them in Original Song, regardless of what happens this year with Best Animated Feature.
