Fame from Nine to Five: Original Song, 1980

And now, a special musical break with the nominees for Best Original Song. "Fame" was the winner this year - though Dolly still got a moment:

Jennings' first nomination; later won this category for An Officer and a Gentleman and Titanic

"On the Road Again" from Honeysuckle Rose
music and lyrics by Willie Nelson
first and only nomination

"Fame" from Fame
music by Michael Gore
lyrics by Dean Pitchford
Gore's second Oscar in one night; later nominated for Terms of Endearment's score
Pitchford's first Oscar nom and only win; nominated thrice more here, two of them for Footloose

"Out Here on My Own" from Fame
music by Michael Gore
lyrics by Lesley Gore
Lesley Gore's first and only nomination
