Ralph Breaks The Internet's ‘A Place Called Slaughter Race' Lands Oscar Shortlist For Best Original Song


Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse may be dominating the internet buzz right now, but last month also saw a lot of praise coming the way of Ralph Breaks the Internet. Just in, the movie has actually made the Academy shortlist for Best Original Song.

This was shared by Sarah Silverman herself:

The Disney Princesses weren't the only IP to come to the film. The song A Place Called Slaughter Race was actually written by Alan Menken, who's been responsible for writing multiple Disney songs for films like Beauty and the Beast, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Little Mermaid, and more. Despite the checklist that Vanellope had to go through to qualify as a Disney Princess, it's the Alan Menken song that really makes you part of the club.

Though a lot of people are praising Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse now, I could say that Ralph Breaks the Internet was actually the more emotional film. Sure there were the family themes that Miles had to go through in Spider-Verse, but rarely does a film address such a deep emotional friendship like the one between Vanellope and Ralph.

I'm crying just writing about it.

Taking place six years after saving the arcade from Turbo's vengeance, the Sugar Rush arcade cabinet has broken, forcing Ralph and Vanellope to travel to the Internet via the newly-installed Wi-Fi router in Litwak's Arcade to retrieve the piece capable of saving the game.

Ralph Breaks the Internet is still in theaters.
