All The 'Best Original Song' Nominees at the 2014 Oscars
Check out who's up for an Oscar thanks to their songwriting skills!
The nominations for the 2014 Academy Awards are officially out, and while we're a big fan of movies and all, us over at MetroLyrics are essentially interested in one category and one category only: Best Original Song. Taking place on Sunday, March 2nd, it's anybody's game as the five nominees in the musical category are all nominate for good reason.
Pharrell s contribution to the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack, "Happy", is a fun track that both young and old can enjoy, just like the movie. Also up for an Oscar is the Golden-Globe-winning "Ordinary Love" by U2, from the documentary Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom. Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs wrote a song for the gorgeous film Her, entitled "The Moon Song", while the title track for the flick Alone Yet Not Alone is also nominated. Last but not least? It's none other than the massive hit from Disney's Frozen, "Let It Go", sang by Idina Menzel in the film but made popular on radio by Demi Lovato.
So who's going to take home the award for Best Original Song at the Oscars? It's anybody's game. Watch the adorable lyric video for Pharrell's "Happy" off VEVO below:
