Audiences around the world got to wipe away their tears as this tune played. Hopefully Newman can replicate that special moment at this year’s awards.
"We Belong Together" is just one of Newman’s countless Academy Award nominations. In fact, he recently put out the following statement (via Variety) regarding his latest nod:
"It always is a nice thing to get nominated, since this is my 20th nomination I believe…. Pixar is always supportive; the more they give me, the better and the easier it is for me to write the song, so it’s always pretty easy to jump back into the thick of things."
