Ok for what feels like the first time multiple mainstream artists are hoping for Oscar nominations. With the Golden Globe, Grammys and the Critics’ Choice awards all nominating at least one of the acts in the poll.
Till It Happens To You – Written By Lady Gaga and Diane Warren. Nominated by the Grammys and the Critic’ Choice. Warren is a notorious Oscar loser but has been nominated multiple times. It was ineligible for the Golden Globes.
See You Again – Written by Wiz Khalifa, Charlie Puth, DJ Frank E and Andrew Cedar. Nominated in every category available Grammys (Song for visual media and Song of the Year), Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice.
Earned It – Written by The Weeknd, Stephan Moccio, Jason Quenneville and Ahmad Balshe. Nominated by the Grammys. Now it is part of the 50 Shades of Gery soundtrack and is the only song snubbed by both the Critics’ Choice and the Golden Globes.
Love Me Like You Do – Written by Max Martin, Savan Kotecha, Ilya Salmanzadeh, Ali Payami and Tove Lo. Nominated by the Grammys, Golden Globes and Critics Choice. Like Earned It LMLYD was also apart of the 50 Shades soundtrack and the Oscars might not want to nominated that film but unlike Earned It the song has been nominated elsewhere.
Writing on the Wall – Written by Sam Smith and Jimmy Napes. Nominated by the Critics’ Choice and the Golden Globes. A safe pick but the only song here with negative reviews.
Now not all will be nominated (if any) but who do you think will have the best shot at getting nominated for the biggest award for the movies.December 31, 2015 at 10:43 am #415690
the Oscars’s jury is very selective, conservative and strict.
I’ll be not surprised if there are many snubs the day of the nominations.
I really doubt that they will nominate 50 Shades Of Grey in any category , including original song. (wich is it best chance to get one)
I think the chances are like this:
Dianne & Gaga 70% (after the Gaga’s tribute to the Sound of Music this year and with the veteran Dianne in the song, I think that Til It Happens To You has a good chance of being nominated)
Wiz & Charlie & others 65%
The Weeknd 35%
Max Martin & Tove lo 30%
Sam Smith 40%
I think there are several songs by non-mainstream artist that have better chances for a nomination and even a victory.December 31, 2015 at 4:58 pm #415691
Everywhere I look Til It Happens to You is being predicted, people are very confident that it will be in. Not being elegible at the Globes isn’t such a big deal for its Oscar chances because with these two artists as writers, it would’ve been nominated and probably would’ve been the easy winner with the competition it has. Which is the main point here, competition isn’t that fierce. Not at all. Which also is a good sign for the 50 Shades songs. They were very very popular.
The Weeknd is having such a great overexposed year, that it could translate all the way to the Oscars as he keeps growing in popularity so he might get some votes. But Love Me Like You Do seems more logical. The problem here is not the film were they come from, but the fact that musically, neither one is Oscar friendly.December 31, 2015 at 5:15 pm #415692
None of the above.December 31, 2015 at 8:24 pm #415693
See you Again from Furious 7 is the only lock, everything else is a possibility.January 2, 2016 at 3:17 am #415694
Lady GagaJanuary 2, 2016 at 12:46 pm #415695
The popular choices, like the Grey songs and the Furious one, are really not that good. The GaGa song is really good and deserves at least a nomination. The Spectre one… just no. It doesn’t deserve to be even a Bond theme.January 3, 2016 at 8:46 am #415696
To me both “Til It Happens To You” and “Love Me Like You Do” will be nominated. The first one because it was penned by Dianne Warren and because Lady Gaga is now being respected by the Oscars thanks to her Sound of Music performance.
“Love Me Like You Do” had been nominated elsewhere and though it is cheesy. It does have nice lyrics and imagery.
I wouldn’t be surprised if “See You Again” is also nominated. They’d want the ratings. They’d want the Paul Walker tribute.
“Earned It” on the other hand does not feel very Oscar-like. “Writing’s On the Wall” did not make a huge impact and not all of the Bond themes had been nominated. In fact, Adele’s “Skyfall” win was the first from a Bond theme.January 4, 2016 at 3:20 pm #415697
All of them have chances, but the least one is Sam Smith’s, it received too much backlash. I put that on being released after Skyfall, the expectations were very high.
See You Again and Til It Happens to You seems to be the front runners right now.January 11, 2016 at 4:30 pm #415698
^People forget that many “non-oscar”-worthy movies, had been nominated, thank a song.
“Thanks God, It´s Friday” is an oscar-winning movie. And it´s and awful movie.
“You light up me Life” gave an oscar for a movie, i am quite sure, had seen.
“I´ve just called to say i love you” from Lady in Red… awful comedy.. and it´s a oscar winning movie.
If we were on the 80s, a nomination it will be easier for them…
About Bond´s song… well, Neither Madonna, nor Garbage, Duran Duran, A-ha, Sheryl Crow, U2 for Goldeneye got a nomination… and they are/were powerstar when they did the songs…
As far i can remember only these songs had been nominated
Paul McCartney-s “Live and Let Die”
Carly Simon´s “Nobody does it better”
Sheena Easton “For your Eyes Only”
Burt Bacarach´s “The look of Love” (Casino Royale)January 11, 2016 at 4:56 pm #415699
Sam Smith s victory at the Golden Globes over Wiz and Charlie makes this category very complicated.
so far I can see geting a nomination: TIHTY, SYA, & WOTWJanuary 14, 2016 at 6:10 am #415700
wow I never expect that snub for see you again, but is the academy so I understand.
congratz Gaga, Sam and TheWeeknd and the rest of the nominees 🙂January 14, 2016 at 7:50 am #415701
Gaga is taking thisJanuary 14, 2016 at 8:24 am #415702
See you Again from Furious 7 is the only lock, everything else is a possibility.
