In a comical bit of Oscars mischief, Hugh Jackman showed up to The Late Show with David Letterman on Wednesday dressed as the 16th president and proceeded to sing the opening line of the Gettysburg Address – to prove that he, and not Daniel Day-Lewis, deserves the Oscar for Best Actor.

"The truth is, I wanted to sway a few last-minute Oscar voters. I'll be honest. I mean, really, can Daniel Day-Lewis do this?" Jackman said before breaking into song.

Academy Award Best Song Nominations: Who Will Win?

Originally posted 01/10/2013 04:30PM

Might Adele wrestle a foul-mouthed bear for an Academy Award? Or will a criminal on the run sweep in to steal the statuette?

At this year's Academy Awards, it's anyone's guess.

The Oscar nominees were announced Jan. 10, and the five nominated tracks for Best Original Song range from jazzy tunes like the Norah Jones-sung "Everybody Needs a Best Friend" (Ted) to pop hits like Adele's "Skyfall" (Skyfall). The nominated bunch also includes moody, new age tracks like "Pi's Lullaby" (Life of Pi); bluesy ballads like the Scarlett Johansson-sung "Before My Time" (Chasing Ice); and Hugh Jackman's heart-wrenching, Broadway-ready ballad from Les Misérables, "Suddenly."

Listen to the nominated songs below – and then check out which songs (cough, mostly Disney songs in the '90s, cough) took home the Oscar for Best Original Songs in the past.
