The Original Song award wasn’t introduced until several years into the Academy Awards, but it has been a staple ever since. This category is one of the few chances for the ceremony to get a little showy and features some great performances by the artists behind the songs. The songs nominated this year are featured in some of the best films of the year, but each one has a unique message that translates well outside of film and each one complements its film beautifully.
I’m not going to speak about each song, I’m going to let each song speak for itself.
The nominees for Best Original Song are:
- “Mighty River” from Mudbound
- “Mystery of Love” from Call Me by Your Name
- “Remember Me” from Coco
- “Stand Up for Something” from Marshall
- “This is Me” from The Greatest Showman
My Prediction to win is…
“Remember Me” from Coco
