Golden Globe Nominees: Best Original Song

My predictions: 4/5
Who’s missing? Love Is Not Love (Bros), Applause (Tell It Like a Woman), many others

I hadn’t remembered which songs I had selected here and was pleased to see that I did so well overall. I’m most thrilled about Naatu Naatu (RRR), which I have a hard time believing wouldn’t win over anyone’s vote after listening to it and all the others. But Hold My Hand (Top Gun: Maverick) and Lift Me Up (Black Panther: Wakanda Forever) are both good choices from popular artists – Lady Gaga and Rihanna – and Ciao Papa (Guillermo Del Toro’s Pinocchio) has a particular relevance to its film. It’s interesting to note that there’s only one nominee here that’s the sole representative from its film, Carolina (Where the Crawdads Sing), which also happens to be the only film in this race I have yet to see.

Who will win? I’ll give this one to Hold My Hand.
