The Academy Awards, also known as The Oscars, are coming up and the category for ‘Best Original Song’ looks promising.
All the nominees are first time ever nominees with the exception of two-time Oscar winner James Ralph and seven-time Oscar winner Diane Warren. This category is so important to musicians because the chance to win in the category is very rare since the Oscars are mostly film and acting based.
Here are a list of the nominees in the “Best Original Song” category:
The Weeknd- “Earned It” from 50 Shades Of Gray
J. Ralph & Antony- ” Manta Ray” from Facing Extension
David Lang- “Simple Song #3” from Youth
Lady Gaga- “Til It Happens To You” from The Hunting Ground
Sam Smith- “Writing’s On The Wall” from Spectre
The category is very diverse and spans over several genres of music. The Academy Awards will air Febubary 28th at 7pm E.S.T on ABC. Until then, you can decide on you think is more deserving of the Oscar.
