    Wanted to discuss original song category for next Oscars. The category is stacked. Who do we think will make it in final five line up and will win.
    Listing some contenders:
    Lin Manuel Miranda for Encanto, in the heights
    Jennifer Hudson and Carole King, Respect
    Ben Platt, Dear Evan Hansen
    Lady Gaga for Top Gun Maverick
    Ariana Grande , Don’t Look Up
    Billie Elish, No time to die
    Diane Warren for being Diane Warren

    I hope Jhud gets in.Her movie is not getting very good reviews from early screenings but I hope the song gets in. Billie would have been a sure thing last year but I wonder if the delay dented her chances. Her movie also isn’t getting good reviews. I think Ariana is getting in because the composer is Nicholas Brittei and her movie is Netflix’s major Oscar player plus the director is an Oscar favourite. Lin Manuel is a sure thing too.

    This far i only know No Time to Die.

    If Lady Gaga indeed does have a song for Top Gun, then she’ll probably make it, the music field loves her.

    FYC:

    "Succession" and "Severance" in all Drama categories;
    "Ted Lasso" and "The Great" in all Comedy categories;
    "Station Eleven" and "The White Lotus" in all Limited categories + Ethan Hawke for "Moon Knight".

    Kaley Cuoco ("The Flight Attendant"), Janelle James ("Abbott Elementary"), Mandy Moore ("This is Us"), Colin Firth ("The Staircase"), Christine Baranski ("The Good Fight"), Katja Herbers ("Evil").

    1. “No Time to Die” (No Time to Die) – frontrunner until otherwise

    ———————————————————————————————

    2 “Here I Am”, (Repsect) – getting major Rocketman vibes here

    3. “Don’t Look Up”, (Don’t Look Up) – Ariana & Cudi are two acts who I feel AMPAS won’t be embarrassed to call “Oscar nominated x” (cough Wiz Khalifa & Charlie Puth cough), it’s in a potential BP contender and apparently sung in film.

    ———————————————————————————————

    4. “So May We Start”, (Annette) – film could flop into oblivion but it’s got a legendary band, a song actually sung in the film and has snob appeal (a la that song from Youth)

    5. “Somehow You Do” (Four Good Days) – never underestimate Diane Warren, sigh.

    ———————————————————————————————

    6. “Footprints” (Joe Bell) – see above, sigh.

    7. “TBA”, (Dear Evan Hansen) – Platt’s being touring and making music of his own for a while now so it’ll have the “credibility” that stopped McConaghey & Close noms here. Plus the triple EGOT narrative again (a la Jesus Christ Emmys)

    8. “Colombia, Mi Encanto”, (Encanto) – Disney animated musical composed by Lin Manuel Miranda. Pure Oscar bait.

    ———————————————————————————————

    9. “TBA”, (The Harder They Fall) – Jay Z allegedly written a song for it.

    10. “Beyond the Shore”, (CODA) – no idea how this will play but it’s got Apple money behind it

    ———————————————————————————————

    11. “Chasing Dreams”, (Changing the Game) – there’s always some random documentary song

    12. “Hourglass” (Mary J. Blige’s My Life) – another random doc song but this time with Amazon money and from someone they actually know

    13. “Beginning Middle End” (To All the Boys: Always and Forever) – if AMPAS didn’t touch Furious 7 there is no way there touching TATBILB, still think it’ll make a couple precursors though on the bias of being a song that’s actually being listened to and used well in its films plot.

    ———————————————————————————————

    14. “We Will” (Space Jam: A New Legacy) – Lil Baby & Franklin work surprisingly well together and it’s being pushed as “the song” from the film.

    ———————————————————————————————

    15. “On My Way”, (The Mitchell’s vs the Machines) – lemme live in my delusion

    ———————————————————————————————

    16. “Home All Summer”, (In the Heights) – theoretically could happen but doubtful after it flopped and there’s more LMM coming.

    No Time To Die Should be ineligible.

    Congratulations to Grammy Winners: Jazmine Sullivan, Doja Cat, SZA and Olivia Rodrigo!

    Why lol? It wasn’t eligible last year too. It has to be eligible when the movie is eligible. Tho I don’t think Billie is winning.

    ? The only reason she is singing an original song in a McKay movie is to win Oscar for original song. And she is definitely getting nominated. Nicholas Brittei,the song composer has a great track record at Oscars, the director too has an extremely good track record at Oscars and Netflix will campaign the heck out of her.

    I think Lin Manuel is winning for Encanto. But he is in contention for in the heights and possibly tick tock boom has an original song too so idk how the hell he will campaign for so many things.

    “No Time to Die” feels like old news. I think Lin Manuel Miranda could win with Encanto.

    Won’t happen. Cruella is not academy bait and Nicholas Brittei (composer of Call me Cruella) will seriously campaign for Ariana song from Don’t look up I think.
