The Silver Linings Playbook
David O. Russell is quickly becoming one of the great soundtrack assemblers of our times. He won in this category for his last film, The Fighter, for its use of The Heavy’s How You Like Me Now but there’s a good chance it could have also won for a Led Zeppelin song: Good Times Bad Times. There were multiple songs in consideration for TSLP as well. It easily could have won here for its use of Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash’s “The Girl from the North Country” or its use of Stevie Wonder’s “My Cherie Amour” as well.
