28 Oscar Experts predict ‘Frozen’ will win Best Song, two favor U2

All but two of our 30 Oscar Experts are predicting that “Let It Go” from “Frozen” will win Best Song at the Oscars on Sunday. That support gives first-time nominees Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez leading odds of 2/13 to win an Academy Award.

If that happens, Robert will attain EGOT status having already won at the Emmys, Grammys, and Tonys previously. He would be the 12th person to join that exclusive club and also, at age 39, the youngest by several years. Rita Moreno completed her EGOT at age 45.

Tariq Khan (Fox News) and Michael Musto (Gawker, Out.com) are the only Experts predicting “Ordinary Love” from “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” to prevail. That song sits in second place with odds of 10/1 of pulling off an upset. The four members of rock band U2 (Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton, Larry Mullen) are nominated for the second time (the other was for a tune they composed for “Gangs of New York”).

Happy” from “Despicable Me 2” and “The Moon Song” from “Her” are longshots with odds of 50/1 each. The former is from first-time nominee and Grammy winner Pharrell Williams. The latter is written by singer Karen O and Spike Jonze, who is also nominated for writing and producing this year.
