An Academy voter yesterday told me she wished there was one place to hear all five of the Oscar-nominated songs at once. Alhough the Academy sends out a lavish DVD package of the Foreign Language, Documentary Feature and Live Action, Documentary and Animated Shorts, it does nothing regarding the songs, which at best show up in downloads or the occasional CD.
So instead of making you rummage through YouTube videos, Oscar voters, here is every one of the five nominees for Original Song. And this year they are, to quote the title of the first entry, awesome. Check out the contenders below.
“Everything Is Awesome” from The Lego Movie
Music and Lyric by Shawn Patterson
“Glory” from Selma
Music and Lyric by John Stephens and Lonnie Lynn
“Grateful” from Beyond The Lights
Music and Lyric by Diane Warren
“I’m Not Gonna Miss You” from Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me
Music and Lyric by Glen Campbell and Julian Raymond
“Lost Stars” from Begin Again
Music and Lyric by Gregg Alexander and Danielle Brisebois
