AFT Awards: Best Original Song

This is the twenty-first category of the 6th Annual AFT Film Awards to be announced. The AFT Awards are my own personal choices for the best in film of each year and the best in television of each season. The AFT Film Awards include the traditional Oscar categories and a number of additional specific honors. Nominees are pictured in the order I’ve ranked them. Click here to see previous years of this category. I didn’t have nearly as much time to devote to listening to all of the eligible tunes this year, so instead I’ve selected three Golden Globe nominees that grew on me the more I listened to them, two of which are from films I haven’t seen in the aim of recognizing the best original songs written for motion pictures this past year.

The winner:
Skyfall (Skyfall) was a film-defining anthem for James Bond that blended perfectly with the themes and style of the 50th Bond film.

Other nominees:
For You (Act of Valor)
Safe and Sound (The Hunger Games)
