Dreamgirls competes itself out of competition

Dreamgirls had three separate nominations for Best Original Song... and thus three songs to spread the wealth. Combined, Dreamgirls probably had the majority vote, but alas, Melissa Etheridge wins for the rather forgettable song "I Need To Wake Up" from An Inconvient Truth.
An Inconvenient Truth has fared well tonight - not only did it win Best Song, which I must imagine is pretty rare for a documentary, but it also won for Best Documentary Feature. On top of that, the Oscars and Leonardo DiCaprio played out a great gag where Al Gore began his speech to announce his candidacy for President of the United States of America, when the Oscar music started playing indicating he had spoke too long. Unfortunately, Gore never made his announcement, and thus we are stuck with a bunch of so-so Democratic candidates.
It's not to late, Al! It's not too late!
