2023 Oscar Predictions: Best Original Song


Category Commentary: Fifteen songs remain from the 82 songs on the Best Original Mix.

Big music stars are here to provide ratings if the Academy feels inclined to lean on it. We’ve got Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Drake, Jazmin Sullivan and Selena Gomez, with innovative selections like the team behind “RRR” to “Natu Natu.”

In the case of SS Rajamouli’s Tollywood epic, having its two leads NT Rama Rao Jr and Ram Charan Teja perform iconic dance sequences on stage will catapult the show (and ratings) into a new stratosphere of global entertainment. Please do not pass this academy.

With this many superstars in the running, someone big is bound to be missed. There is a lot of support between the Rita Wilson and Diane Warren branches, which represent conventional choices and leave room for inspired selections like pop stars. Warren is coming off a killer speech at the Governors Awards where she was given an honorary Oscar, belting out her track from “Tell It Like A Woman.”

Wilson, who is a producer on the film with her husband, two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks (“Philadelphia” and “Forest Gum”), is working on the campaign trail. The husband and wife may be one of the newly married couples to garner awards attention, which in recent years has given us power couples like Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz.

A few shortlist snubs worth mentioning include Billie Eilish and Phineas (“Nobody Like You” from “Turning Red”) and Joe Jonas (“Not Alone” from “Devotion”). I crave Billy Eichner’s collaboration with Marc Shaiman on “Love Is Not Love” from “Bros.”
