Oscar Best Song Non-Nominees

Oscar and Ellen 2014The Oscars are next week and there are four songs nominated for Best Song.

“Happy” by Pharrell Williams from “Despicable Me 2

Let It Go” sung by Idina Menzel from “Frozen

The Moon Song” sung by Karen O from the movie “Her

Ordinary Love” by U2 from the movie “Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom”

Alone Yet Not Alone,” a little-heard tune from a little-seen film of the same name was disqualified.  Songwriter Bruce Broughton, a former governor and current music branch executive committee member, “emailed members of the branch to make them aware of his submission during the nominations voting period.”. An Academy no-no.

There were 75 songs eligible for nomination.  Here are a few that could have replaced the song that would eventually lose to (my prediction) winner “Let It Go”

“Last Mile Home” by Kings Of Leon from August: Osage County

100$ Bill by Jay-Z from “The Great Gatsby”

“I See Fire” by Ed Sheeran from “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug”

“Atlas” by Coldplay from “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”

“Stay Alive” by Jose Gonzalez from “The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty”

Doby by Will Ferrell from Anchorman 2
