Oscar-eligible songs revealed

To be screened for voting members Jan. 6

Forty-nine songs have been deemed eligible to compete in the best original song category at the 81st Annual Academy Awards.

"High School Musical 3: Senior Year" led the potential hit list by qualifying 11 tunes. Its nearest competitor is "Repo! The Genetic Opera," which is represented by three songs. A maximum of two songs can be nominated from any one film.

On Jan. 6, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will screen clips featuring each song, in random order, for voting members of the music branch in Los Angeles. Members then will vote to determine which three to five should become nominees in the category. A DVD copy of the song clips will be made available to those branch members who are unable to attend the screening.
