@djtooshay: It's pretty obvious that the Academy does strategic shit. Halle AND Denzel winning the top acting awards in the same year? Brokeback AND Transamerica getting nods the same year? Yeah. They keep getting more transparent every time.

But still, I didn't like the song, I didn't like the message behind the song (who makes a pimp all his money, while he's sitting on his ass?), or the message of the movie (you can treat women like shit, and throw a baby out on the sidewalk, so long as you fall for one of your hos and get a rap career going). Also the performance was rubbish, partly because they couldn't sing half the words of the song on TV. But, agree to disagree and all that.
