Golden Globe Nominees: Best Original Song

My predictions: 3/5, missing songs from “Cats” and “The Lion King”
Who’s missing? Plenty of contenders

This category feels much more normative than is usually the case. I’ve only seen two of the films in which the songs are featured, and only remembered one of them. I’m disappointed that “Wild Rose” couldn’t be represented here. I’ve listened to all of the nominees, and the two that seem strongest are Beautiful Ghosts (Cats) and Stand Up (Harriet). The other three are Into the Unknown (Frozen II), Spirit (The Lion King), and I’m Gonna Love Me Again (Rocketman). I’ll have more analysis on the musicians involved in my winner predictions – click the titles to listen to the songs on YouTube!

Who will win? I’m not sure, but I’ll pick Spirit for now.
