Leona Lewis rumored for Oscar nod

leona_lewisLeona Lewis may be up for an Oscar at the next Academy Awards. Two of her songs — “Happy,” from Precious and her new single “I See You,” which is the theme for the upcoming new James Cameron movie Avatar — are rumored to be in the running for the movie awards.  Lewis talked to the Daily Star: “I’m just so proud of it,” she says about the song ‘Happy,’ “because I wrote it, and to be associated with a film like Precious, which is about trying to overcome troubles and trials in your life. I’m glad that someone got that message.” As for Avatar, she says she’s only seen a clip from the movie, which is set to open December 18. “It’s not finished yet and it’s insane, awesome. I heard the song — great lyrics, very, very epic. So I went in and I did it. And then they played it to James and he phoned me up and said: ‘Oh, my God. I love you!’ He’s so cool. I had this perception that he was going to be totally untouchable and unreachable. But he’s just like your nice uncle. He’s lovely.” ~Alexandra Heilbron
