Oscars 2017: Best Original Song

As with almost every other category this year, La La Land is going to be the one to beat. While Justin Hurwitz is probably going to win a statue for Best Original Score, he faces a bit of a challenge in the Original Song category. He is in fact nominated twice for Best Original Song, so it’s possible that one might cancel out the other.


Among his contenders are some pretty big names: Sting, Justin Timberlake and Lin-Manuel Miranda, so at least the performances on Oscars night should be decent (we shall see how Ryan Gosling fares when he has to sing live).

Justin Hurwitz, “City of Stars”, La La Land


Justin Hurwitz, “Audition (The Fools Who Dream)”, La La Land


Justin Timberlake, Max Martin and Karl Johan Schuster, “Can’t Stop the Feeling”, Trolls


J. Ralph and Sting, “The Empty Chair”, Jim: The James Foley Story


Lin-Manuel Miranda, “How Far I’ll Go”, Moana
