2016 was a weird year. It felt AMPAS finally figured out what the **** to do with this category and the mess that was the 2000s and early 2010s. You 2 La La Land songs, a recognisable pop hit, one of the best Disney efforts in YEARS.
But on the other hand you only one good La La Land song, the pop hit was bland AF and the 5th nominee being a no1curr Sting song. The options for a better LLL song was there and so was Sing Street and Zootopia, god this category is a mess (but I love it).
They literally had another Best Picture nominee written by one of the most important song-writers of the 2010s and snubbed it for that boring Sting song. That hurt.
Btw I only now realize that Sia could have been a double nominee that year.

I have no idea what year it would even be eligible for, but “Beginning, Middle, End” from the newest To All the Boys film is a outstanding little romantic pop rock number.
And it’s actually sung in the film (multiple times), would be inspired nominee.February 13, 2021 at 4:02 am #1204040033
Dolly Parton would be a two time winner!!! I like “Fame”, but both the music and lyrics of “9 to 5” are far, far superior. The same can be said for “Travelin’ Thru” & its competition with “It’s Hard Out Here For a Pimp”, but to a lesser degree, even if I’d prefer to casually listen to “Fame” more than pimp.
I love Dolly! Who doesn’t, but “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp” deserved the Oscar, imho. The song was weaved into the plot as it was recorded and it played an integral role in telling the story of “Hustle and Flow”. As a not really a fan of best original song, I think the winner should play a part in the movie’s storyline and not a song just played at the beginning or end as a recap or for an Oscar nod.
Life is a thin thread.

The way WB completely missed a golden opportunity to get an actual hit song nominated, that’s not a no1curr end credits song and people actually know the words to.
