Michael McKean and Annette O'Toole Earn an Oscar Nod for "A Mighty Wind" Song
LOS ANGELES, Jan. 27, 2004 - Michael McKean and Annette O'Toole are two of the more recognizable actors working in Hollywood today, but now they've also been recognized as a songwriting duo with an Oscar nomination for Best Original Song. In 2003, no song written for a motion picture played a larger or more pivotal role in its film than "A KISS AT THE END OF THE RAINBOW," composed by McKean and O'Toole for director Christopher Guest's latest comedy feature, "A Mighty Wind." "A KISS AT THE END OF THE RAINBOW" is a sweet love song laced, in the best folk music tradition, with hope, idealism and shades of melancholy.
McKean and O'Toole, who are also a married couple, co-wrote three of the songs featured in "A Mighty Wind," with Michael providing an additional seven compositions. The song that has captured Oscar's heart, however, is "A KISS AT THE END OF THE RAINBOW." The song is performed by Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara, who play 'Mitch & Mickey'; their heart-warming reunion and the song which exemplifies it, serve as the climax to the film. Now nominated for Best Original Song, "A KISS AT THE END OF THE RAINBOW" is destined to become both the movie's, and the songwriting duo's, biggest success story to date.
