    She co-wrote the song “Til it Happens to You” with Diane Warren for the documentary “The Hunting Ground,” about sexual assaults on college campuses. Both women have name recognition, the film feels important, and the Best Song race doesn’t seem to be teeming with contenders this year (or maybe I’m mistaken about that). And Warren is kinda due a win finally after seven previous nominations.

    Will she win? If not, who can beat her?

    Their hasn’t been a “Let it Go”, “Skyfall” or “Glory” type contender this year so it’s possible for Lady Gaga to be the front-runner.

    See You Again has been hugely successful, and added to that it has sentimental value, so I say its pretty much locked in.

    reprinted from the Best Original Song 2015 thread

    It appears that some critics do not agree with those GoldDerbyites who see the theme, “Til It Happens to You” by Diane Warren and Lady Gaga from the documentary The Hunting Ground  as a frontrunner for Best Original Song.

    In its review of the film, the New York TImes critic questioned the appropriateness of the song, “Again and again, he (Director Kirby Dick) adds cinematic exclamation points when none are needed. At one point, during a sequence in which a woman describes her assault, he briefly slips into horror-flick mode and inserts a shot of a door ominously opening; soon after, he switches gears and moods by starting up the Lady Gaga and Diane Warren song “Till It Happens to You.”

    In its review of the film, the San Francisco Chronicle critic dismissed the song by stating, “Dick even commissioned Lady Gaga to write a song for the film. Really, dude? The material should stand on its own without help from a famous pop star.”

    In its review, the Variety critic was more direct in its dismissal of the song, “. . . the inclusion of an original song from Diane Warren and Lady Gaga — with the unfortunate title “Till It Happens to You” — seems tacky.”

    In its review the Hollywood Reporter critic did provide a kind word, “A song, “Til It Happens to You,” contributed by Lady Gaga and Diane Warren provides an extra jolt of poignancy.”

    I hope “See You Again” is ignored.

    I didn’t think the song was all that impressive. I love everyone involved and the message to it but I really don’t think it deserves any awards. Please all Academy members listen to “I’ll See You in My Dreams” from I’ll See You in My Dreams and vote for it!

    I can see Gaga being nominated at both the Globes & Oscars!

    2015 was all about rebranding her image & the public has taken note of it! She’s had a banner year & will be rewarded as being ‘Billboards: Woman of the Year’ this December (pretty good timing!!!)! Non-Gaga fans now are & if it were based on name recognition; she does have a shot.

    Like Daniel said, Diane Warren is becoming the Susan Lucci of her category – if the songs gets nominated, this will be her 8th bid in that category. Maybe the academy will bite with this one.

    “Til It Happens to You” sounds a mess. I hope it doesn’t win or get nominated for anything.

    Isn’t Brian Wilson supposed to win this year?

    I’m doubting any of the popular fare/artists will be nominated this year, so no Gaga, no “See You Again,” and definitely no to the ‘we need singing lessons’ duo of Sam Smith and Ellie Goulding.

    Who are you predicting then?

    I’m not predicting anything until I see the eligibility list. I have no idea what else is out there except for the songs we keep talking about.

    Same.

    I adore her vocals, and I can live without the video. It’s a song which has the gravitas to win.

    On the other hand, I only like the song winners every ten years. That’s been the pattern.

    Give me a break. It’s a beautiful and powerful song and deserves to win. Period. And that comment on Ellie Goulding and Sam Smith is laughable.
