Pharrell the Oscar Nominee? Here's our picks for Best Original Song.
91
 Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Frozen,”

Indiewire will provide regular updates of our predictions for the 86th Academy Awards through March 2nd, when the winners are announced.

Featuring -- only to have it taken back -- the weirdest Oscar nomination yet not Oscar nomination of all time in "Alone Yet Not Alone" from the movie of the same name that almost nobody had ever heard of, this year's best original song race is now down to just four. "Frozen" tune "Let It Go" seems like the frontrunner among them, but pretty much anything could take it.

Nominees and predictions below. Check out all predictions in all the categories here.

The nominees:
“Happy” from “Despicable Me 2”
Music and Lyric by Pharrell Williams
“Let It Go” from “Frozen”
Music and Lyric by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez
“The Moon Song” from “Her”
Music by Karen O; Lyric by Karen O and Spike Jonze
“Ordinary Love” from “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom”
Music by Paul Hewson, Dave Evans, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen; Lyric by Paul Hewson

Will win: “Let It Go” from “Frozen”
