Best Original Song

Two brand new and quintessentially original musical songs, a new empowering Disney song by one of the most popular song writers right now, a moving Sting song from a little documentary and a major pop hit from a well established artist. The La La Land contributions are the most rare nominees in this category with many years since we had an original musical written for the screen. Will it, however, be enough to beat Justin Timberlakes megahit from Trolls or Lin-Manuel Miranda’s “new” Let It Go? Sting rounds of the category with this year’s equivalent to Lady Gaga’s contribution last year bringing attention to a documentary that did not make it in its own category; plus it brings Sting to the stage on Oscar night..
