"Not Even Nominated" still a classic Oscar sing-along

The 1979 Oscar ceremony had highlights ranging from John Wayne's last public appearance to Laurence Olivier eloquently speaking gibberish upon receiving an honorary statue.

But the 10-minute "Not Even Nominated" medley by Steve Lawrence and the late Sammy Davis Jr. remains a classic of its kind. They swung and crooned their way through an astonishing array of standards, including "Singin' In The Rain" and "When I Fall In Love," that somehow were ignored by the austere but often clueless Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.

Warm up for Sunday's 84th annual Oscars on ABC with one of the ceremony's all-time greatest production numbers. Even though it's just two old school dudes in nothing more than their tuxes.
