Like every year, Oscar 2015 nominations for Best Original Song is going to be very tricky and a hard pick! With talented artists like Lorde, Grouplove to name a few, the contenders for the Best Original Song are brilliant and strong.
Every year, The Academy Award honour the songwriters who have composed the best original song written specifically for a film. The performers of a song are not credited with the Academy Award unless they contributed either to music, lyrics or both in their own right. The category was introduced at the 7th Academy Awards, the ceremony honoring the best in film for 1934.
We have some soothing music, some romantic and some rebellious ones as well. For example, Lorde has sung a beautiful song, 'Yellow Flicker Beat' for The Hunger Games Mockingjay-Part 1 which reflects the rise of Katniss Everdeen played by Jennifer Lawrence. Then we have the romantic 'Let Me' In by Grouplove for The Fault In Our Stars.
