Golden Globe Winner Predictions: Best Original Song

The competition: “Remember Me” by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez (Coco), “Home” by Nick Jonas, Nick Monson, and Justin Tranter (Ferdinand), “This Is Me” by Pasek and Paul (The Greatest Showman), “Mighty River” by Mary J. Blige, Raphael Saadiq, and Taura Stinson (Mudbound), and “The Star” by Mariah Carey and Marc Shaiman (The Star)

For your information: Pasek and Paul were last year’s winners for “La La Land.” The Lopez duo was nominated for “Frozen” in 2013 but didn’t win. Blige, who is also nominated for her acting performance this year, was previously up for penning a song from “Bobby” in 2006.

Who should win? I remember both songs from the two films I’ve seen – “The Greatest Showman” and “Mudbound” – were both memorable and impactful. I didn’t have a chance to listen to all these just yet, unfortunately, but plan to soon.

Who will win? I’ll go with a repeat win for the duo behind The Greatest Showman.
