We are one step closer to a Matthew McConaughey Oscar striptease, friends, because — as hoped and prayed for — Magic Mike's "Ladies in Tampa" has been declared eligible for Best Original Song. Also on the Academy's go-list: "Skyfall," which will probably ensure a post-baby comeback performance from Adele;  Rick Ross's "100 Black Coffins," from Django Unchained; the new Les Miserables song; Fiona Apple's ferocious, not-so-censor-friendly "Dull Tool," from This Is 40; and, strangely, Katy Perry's "Wide Awake." Start mailing in your thongs or coffins or whatever a dull tool is to the Academy; the Save the Best Song Performances campaign starts now.Full list: "For You" from "Act of Valor""Metaphorical Blanket" from "Any Day Now""Let It Rain" from "Being Flynn""Learn Me Right" from "Brave""Touch the Sky" from "Brave""Airport" from "Brooklyn Brothers Beat the Best""Come on Girl" from "Brooklyn Brothers Beat the Best »
