    My guess is that “Young and Beautiful” from The Great Gatsby, which is a wonderfully haunting song (it’s actually tied with “Let it Go” for my favourite song of the year) could be in. But I guess that, had they announced a replacement, the song in sixth place would’ve gotten in, and it would’ve probably have been a really obscure nomination choice.

    I’m betting whatever song was in 6th place had no effect on whether or not they named a nominee. I think it’s a case of “everybody loses” here to keep it “fair”.

    I know that people really wanted Lana Del Rey in, but yep, there’s a good chance that a song like the one in 12 Years A Slave or the rap from Short Term 12 was actually ahead. Those were songs that had a real impact and a context in the movie itself.

    It’s useless to argue about this though. I believe that the current Academy rules prevent a replacement in this case, so even if they wanted to and it was logistically possible, they coudn’t do it. We’ll never know.

    I don’t think Lana Del Rey would’ve made it in even without Alone… She is simply not the kind of artist the Academy would go for.

    I don’t know if it would have got in, but I think it would have possibly been I see fire from The Hobbit.

    I hope that #6 was “Young & Beautiful,” but I can see why that is a longshot idea.

    Hopefully not Lana del Rey’s little song. I think the world has had a lifetime worth of her overrated shtick in 2012, no need to keep pretending she was good.

    My guess is “You Can’t Fix This” from Sound City

    Probably something from another Rick Santorum movie.
