2013 Best Musical Performance Winner

Inside Llewyn Davis

While I do love this scene and I love the song within the context of the scene, I’m not entirely on board with the fact that this particular song is the one getting the most attention, in part because I don’t think it’s overly representative of the rest of the music in the movie.  This is a silly novelty song and the fact that Llewyn is reducing himself to be a part of it is sort of a personal failing.  Despite that, you can see why this thing would be a hit: it’s really catchy.  There are a lot of layers to what makes this scene so successful on top of the fact that it’s just an interesting song and performance, and that’s why I went with it.
