    Sorry, I know that there was a thread already, but I couldn’t find it….

    Nikki is almost always a good source for these things…she tweets:

    OSCAR SCOOP: Acad just met secretly over whether to strip composer Bruce Broughton of nom for alleged illegal campaigning to music members…

    I guess it makes sense to at least look into it….

    Another reason to put this category out of its misery.

    They wouldn’t replace it (that would be the obvious #5 choice).

    it would be bad PR, since it is fundamentalist Christian based and would be a huge brouhaha that would make a bunch of folks angry. 

    If it is disqualified, now with Bad Grandpa in hand I will have seen all the feature film nominees before the ceremony – I thought this would make it impossible.  

    My guess is after the awards they penalize Broughton as a warning to others. But maybe it was particularly egregious.

    At least it looks even more likely they minimize the exposure of this year’s nominees on the show.

    I have to admit, I was reluctant that it might be overthinking from me, but I actually did consider the possibility that this song would win. The music branch is so weird after all, and I wouldn’t put it past them to give an award for such a terrible song just because the person behind it is liked. 

    Of course, if the song is disqualified, this becomes a non-issue. But if he campaigned, we might be looking at Alone Is Not Alone beating U2, Pharrell and Robert Lopez.

    Please be disqualified so I can say that I’ve seen every eligible film.

    Well, I’ll still have to wait until The Wind Rises comes north, but I have a feeling Alone, Yet Not Alone won’t make it in time, or ever, really.

    The whole Academy votes for the winner of best song, not just the music branch.

    It has had zero chance of winning.

    Maybe the Academy should meet to decide that this category should be done away with, once and for all.

    I’m sticking with my prediction of Pharrell, with U2 practically tied. I was merely speculating.

    I wonder if this film will ever see the light of day. Probably a nothing DVD release, and die a slow death on sales bins everywhere if the controversy continues.

    Listened to this – it has a kind of “Wind Beneath My Wings” feel to it – it’s at least as bad as some of the other nominees.

    It played some mid-country cities last year – there is a whole bunch of off the radar cities that actually do well with this kind of film, which sometimes doesn’t make it to NY/LA (obviously this qualified in LA in a secret 1-week run).

    I wonder if the Academy might start looking at the bigger issue of letting films qualify this secretly, which is getting to be more and more of an issue. (Gloria actually played a week last year for reasons I can’t figure out, since Roadside didn’t really tell anyone or have reviews – it now means its long short chances for 2014, led by actress, are now gone.

    I know that we all hate the nomination, but do we know exactly what is being investigated here?

    I agree that Pharrell can win this award for “Happy.”

    Song is beautiful, it should win, although ‘Happy’ would be a deserving winner too!

    Something about the way he campaigned for it. Which is kind of obvious considering all we know about the film, the release and the song.

    Was it a Hurt Locker producer that got his nomination taken away for doing what everybody suspects went on with this song?

    THANK GOD.  Kick Broughton out of the Academy altogether and if there was any justice in the world, get rid of the song from the category.
