Sir Paul said today that was particularly significant for Americans to be honored during this year's Academy Awards ceremony in light of the September 11 terrorist attacks:"To tell you the truth, I think this year, with what's happened in America, I think maybe it was important a lot of Americans had to win. And you know I don't blame them. I wouldn't take that away from them. If I was an American voting, which most of the voters were, I think it's the year for America, why not?Sir Paul went on to say that he was surprised that his Vanilla Sky tune had received an Oscar nomination. He said that he wrote it in ten minutes while he sat at his kitchen table:
"If I had to lose to anyone, Randy was the man because he has been nominated 16 times. He is a great guy and I am a big fan of his anyway.""I wrote it very quickly so it wasn't like what I thought was my greatest song ever. I was very pleased it got in there."
