As 27 of our 29 Oscar Experts predicted, Common and John Legend won the Best Original Song Oscar Sunday night. Their tune “Glory” from the 1960s historical drama “Selma” brought the first nomination and victory for both men.
After wins at the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards, this song was the overwhelming choice to prevail with 2/11 odds. It was also predicted by six of our seven Editors, 22 of our Top 24 Users, and 84% of our overall Users.
Tied with that tune at 20/1 was “I’m Not Gonna Miss You” from the documentary “Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me.” It was written by Campbell and Julian Raymond and had the backing of Scott Feinberg (The Hollywood Reporter).
