    Let’s list all the possible contenders.

    Remember, the song must be written specifically for the movie and has to be heard within the film or as the first tune during the end credits.

    One song that I think a lot of people are sleeping on is the unreleased Geroge Michael song that will be released with Last Christmas. George Michael is well liked, and he’s never been nominated for an Oscar, so this seems like a great chance for the academy to posthumously reward him.

    Doubt it would be eligible because it wasn’t made for the film.

    It has a snowball’s chance in Hell, but if this is the way that Her Smell gets an Oscar nomination…? So be it.

    That’s possible. Hopefully it will be eligible.

    How am I only now finding out that Labrinth is a co-writer on Spirit.

    I wonder if voters are savvy enough to realize what an opportunity they’re missing if they don’t invite Del Rey, Cyrus and Grande on the stage.

    Not sure if the song has what it takes to win, but it definitely screams to be nominated.
