2015 Oscar Predictions: Best Original Song

2015 Oscar Predictions: Best Original Song

Indiewire will provide updates of our predictions for the
87th Academy Awards through February 22nd, when the winners are announced.

The primary opportunity for Oscar voters to reward “Selma” (it’s sadly the only nomination it got besides Best Picture), this will probably go to “Glory.” But watch out for “Everything is Awesome” (a way to make up for the big “LEGO Movie” snub in Best Animated Feature) and “I’m Not Gonna Miss You” (a way to honor Glen Campbell, who is ailing from Alzheimer’s disease).

 Check out our predictions in other categories here.

The Nominees:
“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

Will Win: “Glory”
Could Win: “I’m Not Gonna Miss You”
Should Win: “Lost Stars”
Shoulda Been Here: “Yellow Flicker Beat”
