ORIGINAL SONG

Tier 1 - Predicted 5
wild guesswork as we won't even know which movies have originals for quite some time

Queen of Katwe
"Back to Life"
La La Land
"City of Stars"
La La Land
"Audition"
Sing Street
"Drive it Like You Stole It"
Moana
"???"
 

Tier 2 Hmmm what else is eligible? Something else from La La Land or Moana. And...

  • "Try Everything" from Zootopia
  • "No Dames" from Hail Caesar
  • Sia "Angel by the Wings" from the documentary The Eagle Huntress
  • Hozier "Better Love" from The Legend of Tarzan
  • Tori Amos "Flicker" from the documentary Audrie & Daisy

 

Tier 3. Anything really. It's much too early to know. If you hear anything, please do share it with us on the blog as this category can be awfully hard to find info on before the long list of eligible songs is released.
