Here's How 'Anchorman 2' Could Be an Oscar Contender

If you ruled Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues out of the Oscar race, you might have spoken too soon. As The Playlist handily points outParamount is touting the ballad "Doby" as a best original song contender. You can listen to the song here.

It's naturally sung by Will Ferrell/Ron Burgundy, though it really is hard to tell the two apart these days. Sung to a mysterious "Doby," has lyrics like: "Doby, oh Doby, may you find many treasures both emotional and monetary." Somehow we still think one of the songs from Frozen has a better shot at winning or — heck — even getting a nomination, but we've been fooled before. 

Anchorman is basically everywhere these days. In addition to the many many cross-promotional materials the movie is already engaged in, Will Ferrell will host SportsCenter as Ron Burgundy December 5, and the cast was recently warbling "Afternoon Delight" in  Australia.

But you don't have to wait as long to see the whole shebang in theaters. Yesterday it was announced that the release date was moved up two days to December 18.
