Like this year, Disney has a handful of choices for the Academy's original songs. Which songs do you think will be nominated? A complete Disney takeover?

Here's the breakdown as of August 10:

Quote:
Aladdin
Speechless: Music by Alan Menken; lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul

Lion King
Spirit: Music and lyrics by Ilya Salmanzadeh, Labrinth and Beyoncé
Never Too Late: Music and lyrics by Elton John and Tim Rice

Frozen 2
Into the Unknown: Music: Robert Lopez; lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez
Other Frozen 2 songs TBA. Music: Robert Lopez; lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez

Toy Story 4
I Can't Let You Throw Yourself Away: Music and lyrics by Randy Newman.
The Ballad of Lonesome Cowboy: Music and lyrics by Randy Newman.

Spirit and one of the Frozen songs, probably the one sung by Elsa.

I don't the rest are good enough to be nominated. To be honest I don't think Spirit is good enough to be nominated, but the power of Beyoncé™ shall not be ignored.

There's a mistake in your breakdown. Elton John and Tim Rice didn't write Spirit. Probably why it sucks so much.

Wow, that line-up is already stacked with Oscar winners.

I'm guessing "Spirit" and one or two Frozen 2 songs will be nominated.

Yes, it's true; it looks like they could get more than one nomination. I haven't been paying attention yet to what songs other studios have released/will release though, so don't know how competitive the category will be this year. Cats will probably have an original song that could be nominated, and I think Elton John has a good chance with the song from Rocketman, but I don't know much more.

I predict "Into the Unknown" will definitely be nominated (probably the only song Disney will submit from Frozen 2), and maybe "Never Too Late" from The Lion King if Academy members choose it over "(I'm Gonna) Love Me Again". I think "Speechless" could be among the nominees too, but after Alan Menken was snubbed for "Evermore", I don't want to get my hopes up.
