Films rarely campaign two songs anymore though Begin Again should. This is the most obvious choice.

End credits but still emotion-inducing photos are playing during them

Glenn Campbell's last song. It's a beauty. He has alzheimers

Such a fun song.

Left Out / Should / Will Win

Omissions: The most high profile songs that were left out include "Something So Right & "I'll Get You What You Want (Cockatoo in Malibu)" HMIM nod  from Bret McKenzie for Muppets Most Wanted, "I Love You Too Much" by the legendary Paul Williams for The Book of Life, and more.

Will Win: "Glory" - I don't think Oscar will pass up the chance to hand the movie they were so dinged for giving a mere 2 nominations to from a prize everyone would celebrate
Should Win: Tough call. "Glory" is so majestic and beautiful but "Lost Stars" is such an event within its film and also a special song.
