Mary J. Blige is upset over her Oscar snub, calling the Academy "mean" for only nominating two songs when up to five songs could be included in the category.

The R&B star's theme from "The Help," "The Living Proof," was a pre-nominations favorite, but the song was overlooked when the contenders were announced on Tuesday, along with Elton John's "Gnomeo & Juliet" song "Hello Hello" and Madonna's Golden Globe-winning "Masterpiece" from "W.E." Instead, the Academy selected Bret McKenzie's "Man or Muppet" from "The Muppets" and Sergio Mendes' "Rio" tune "Real in Rio."

Blige shared her disappointment with her Twitter followers, writing, "I'm so thankful for true fans like you all. It saddens me & feels like the Academy is being mean 2 only nominate 2 of the 5 slots..." Also missing from the nominations list is the critically-acclaimed tune "Lay Your Head Down," which actress Glenn Close co-wrote for "Albert Nobbs."
