As posted on the Ricki and the Flash thread:
Sounds like “I’m Checkin’ Out” which Streep did for Postcards from the Edge that was nominated for Best Original Song (1990).
“Cold One” may have the same outcome and hopefully Streep will perform this this time around @ the Oscars with The Flash band.June 29, 2015 at 3:27 pm #189008
I haven’t seen The Last Five Years yet but did that have any original songs?
No original songs from The Last Five Years. All from the Off-Broadway show.June 30, 2015 at 2:37 pm #189009
I actually just watched it today! I bet they could have added a couple it seemed very short for a musical at 90 minutesJuly 11, 2015 at 3:22 pm #189010
Is “Earned It” from 50 Shades eligible? That strikes me as the strongest contender so far this yearJuly 12, 2015 at 5:10 am #189011
FYC: “Bing Bong Theme” from Inside Out.

My immediate candidate for this Oscar is the Beach Boys-esque “Feels Like Summer” from SHAUN THE SHEEP MOVIE.August 9, 2015 at 1:26 am #189014This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.August 9, 2015 at 2:14 am #189015
Nathaniel R of The Film Experience made an EXCELLENT argument in support for Best Original Song – Cold One, to quote:
Plus the Original Song “Cold One” is the kind of contender they should be honoring if they’re going to keep that Original Song category. It’s an important moment in the film, it’s a good song, and it is played in full. And it plays again over the main credits to underline how tied it is to the actual movie. It’s not just an afterthought.August 10, 2015 at 3:01 pm #189016
Etchie, you’re a troll. I can’t deal with it anymore.August 10, 2015 at 3:58 pm #189017
Cold One is actually pretty good. I would like to see it get nominated. But of course it all depends on what else comes outAugust 23, 2015 at 11:04 pm #189018
Also the whole soundtrack is as good.
*and probably will give a run for its money to the next Bond theme song, depending on the artist choice for Spectre – hard to beat Mvula with a mediocre Ellie Goulding or Sam Smith or same caliber blandness pick.

‘Till It Happens To You’ from ‘The Hunting Ground.’ It’s a haunting power-ballad with a strong theme, written for a critically acclaimed documentary by seven-time Academy Award nominee Diane Warren and Lady Gaga, who has 6 months ago turned a tribute performance into the most talked-about moment of the Oscars. I can definitely see it happening.August 24, 2015 at 5:53 am #189020
My immediate candidate for this Oscar is the Beach Boys-esque “Feels Like Summer” from SHAUN THE SHEEP MOVIE.
Absolutely. This is my favorite original song so far this year. I know the movie didn’t make much of an impact here in the U.S., but I’m hoping that animation and song nominations aren’t too much to ask for.
