With awards season kicking into higher gear, even movies like "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" want a slot in the golden derby. As first noticed by Indiewire's The Playlist, Paramount Pictures' awards site has "Anchorman 2" up for consideration in the Best Original Song category.

Called "Doby," the track is a two-minute tribute to Doby, a person or animal who touched Ron Burgundy with his "expressionless face." Written by star Will Ferrell, director Adam McKay and composers John Nau and Andrew Feltenstein, the song is performed by Ferrell and what sounds like a children's choir.

Head over to the Paramount For Your Consideration site to listen to "Doby," and check out The Playlist for more information on the "Anchorman 2" soundtrack. "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" is out on Dec. 18.
