The Oscar nominations were announced this morning, and as far as the Best Original Song category it looks like it will come down to two heavy hitters.
I’m pulling for “Let It Go” because it’s from one of Scene’s favorite movies of all time, Frozen. Plus the two people nominated for writing “Let It Go,” Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. are married, so right now I have a soft spot for them.
Unfortunately they’ll be facing tough competition from rock heavyweights U2 and their song “Ordinary Love” from Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. The band already took home the Golden Globe so might just might have the edge.
Hey, do you want to check out Bono snubbing P. Diddy again? Because I sure do.
Yeah, that was kinda mean. But Diddy owns a vodka company and I certainly don’t support that.
The other songs that will be vying for an Oscar include “Along Yet Not Alone” from the movie of the same name, “The Moon Song” from Her, and “Happy” from Despicable Me 2 (another Scene favorite).
Scene and I, however, are not happy that nothing from the Hunger Games was nominated. That soundtrack is so good!
Speaking of snubs, Alex Ebert, the Edward Sharpe frontman and recent Golden Globe winner for Best Original Score failed to receive any Oscar love. Instead, nominations went to the scores from The Book Thief, Gravity, Her (which was composed by members of Arcade Fire), Philomena, and Saving Mr. Banks.
Again, why no Hunger Games love???
