Oscar Honors Irony

Michael McKean and his wife Annette O’Toole are nominated for an Academy Award in the Original Song category for A Kiss at the End of the Rainbow from the mockumentary A Mighty Wind. In the film, the song is performed by Mitch & Mickey, a tragic/comic singer/songwriter duo/couple from the ’60s folk revival (portrayed by Catherine O’Hara and Eugene Levy). The film (from the people behind Waiting for Guffman and This is Spinal Tap) follows the planning of a folk music reunion concert.
