ALL 79 QUALIFIED SONGS FOR OSCAR NOMINATIONS


The Original Song Oscar category is one of its antiquated curiosities, even now that they've reformed the voting practices. 79 films have qualified for nomination, with major singing stars like Patti Smith, No Doubt (be still my beating, throbbing, overflowing heart!), Liza Minnelli, Lorde and Coldplay intermingling with lesser-known contenders from arthouse films. Let's hope we don't see a repeat of last year's Alone Yet Not Alone fiasco...
