As of late there has been some major controversy surrounding the Best Original Song category. With “Alone Yet Not Alone” having their nomination rescinded, the category now has four songs competing to win the coveted Oscar. I really enjoy this category because the song pretty much describes the movie in the most poetic way possible while also giving audiences a tune that simply can’t escape our minds. With no real frontrunner in this category, predicting a winner comes as quite the challenge.
