'Let It Go' won the Critics´ Choice Awards.  :(

 

So it won´t be easy.

 

Fingers crossed for the Oscar!

Disney - Frozen, it is a top film. It won't be easy. Hardly anything to get sad about though.

Happy is better than Ordinary Love by a long shot ! I really like that song better ! I really really hope the album will be nothing like 'Ordinary Love'...

I'm so Happy Coldplay didn't get nominated, it may not be U2's best work, it's not their worst either, there's one thing worst than 'Ordinary Love' and that's the whole Coldplay Discography, if they'd been on there, it would've been too easy for U2 so it  seems legit that these artists have been chosen for nomination !

 

There actually is something worst than 'Ordinary Love' but they still come before coldplay's back-catalogue : Wild Honey, the Pride remix, the Crazy Redanka remix and the Epworth Ordinary remix !!!

This song is rather catchy and from one of the most talked about films from both adults and children today.

 

It would not surprise me if this won, it is number one in the charts too. A worthy winner.

Academy disqualifies Best Song Nominee "Alone Yet Not Alone"

 

The Oscar nomination for an obscure song in a lightly seen film has been rescinded.
The Academy’s board of governors disqualified Bruce Broughton and Dennis Spiegel’s “Alone Yet Not Alone” after learning that Broughton, a former governor and current Music Branch executive committee member, had emailed members of the branch about the song during the nominations voting period.
"No matter how well-intentioned the communication, using one’s position as a former governor and current executive committee member to personally promote one’s own Oscar submission creates the appearance of an unfair advantage,” Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs said.
“I’m devastated," Bruce Broughton said in an email to Billboard. "I indulged in the simplest, grassroots, campaign and it went against me when the song started getting attention.  I got taken down by competition that had months of promotion and advertising behind them.  I simply asked people to find the song and consider it.”
The board determined that Broughton’s actions were inconsistent with the Academy’s promotional regulations. The Academy’s rules state “the Board of Governors may take any corrective actions or assess any penalties that in its discretion it deems necessary to protect the reputation and integrity of the awards process.”
They will not ad an additional nominee in the original song category. The song’s qualifications had been challenged on the basis of the film never being advertised in print.
 
There continues to be rumblings over the allowance of four songwriters on the U2 track “Ordinary Love” from “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.” The rules state that no more than three songwriters may be listed on a track.

Here there is no mention about U2 songwriters.
