Golden Globe Musings: Best Original Song

Golden Globe nominations for this year will be announced shortly, so here’s a survey of the contenders and the most likely predictions at this time. Weigh in with your thoughts, and let me know if I’ve left off anything important. A reminder that the Globes are wildly unpredictable and that, especially this year, it’s hard to know which films and performances will end up being honored.

Beautiful Ghosts (Cats)
Into the Unknown (Frozen 2)
Stand Up (Harriet)
Spirit (The Lion King)
I’m Gonna Love Me Again (Rocketman)

This category is especially hard to predict without the list of fifteen finalists for the corresponding Oscar race, which won’t be released until after Globe nominations are unveiled. Presumed frontrunners include Speak Now (One Night in Miami), Hear My Voice (The Trial of the Chicago 7), Rocket to the Moon (Over the Moon), Io Si (The Life Ahead), and Wear Your Crown (The Prom). If voters are feeling less serious, Húsavík (Eurovision Song Contest) or Wuhan Flu (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm) could show up here. Other contenders are Just Sing (Trolls: World Tour), (If Only You Could) Save Me (Mank), and Loyal Brave True (Mulan).

Current predictions:
Io Si (The Life Ahead)
Speak Now (One Night in Miami)
Rocket to the Moon (Over the Moon)
Wear Your Crown (The Prom)
Hear My Voice (The Trial of the Chicago 7)
