Via LA Times:

You can not only forget about Beyonce Knowles winning an Oscar for best actress this year. (If you haven’t heard, a certain ingenue keeps upstaging her throughout “Dreamgirls.” And in the race for best comedy/musical actress, she’s up against a real devil — Meryl Streep — who knows a lot about winning Globes.) Now it looks like Beyonce won’t win as a songwriter either — for “Listen,” one of the original new tunes added to the original Broadway score. Officially, she’s listed as one of the song’s four writers, but the motion-picture academy only permits three names — max — as a credit

You mean to tell me Beyonce is not that creative and Mr. Knowles smartly forces her name to be put on as a songwriting credit, no waaaaaaaay. And I thought the writers at Bossip could go two weeks without being called haters. BROOKLYN Beyonce Stans, STAND UP!
