“Frozen” fans will be happy to hear that there is now one less song to beat in order to win the Best Original Song Oscar on March 2. The board at The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has disqualified a song called “Alone Yet Not Alone” by Bruce Broughton.
Bruce Broughton is a former member of the board. He was taken out of the running when it was found out that he was basically asking for the nomination. He emailed members of the academy during voting.
There has been no replacement nominee named. So the “Let it Go” songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, who also happen to be a team in real life, now have only 3 competitors:
- “Happy” by Pharrell Williams from Despicable Me 2
- “The Moon Song” by Karen O and Spike Jonze from Her
- “Ordinary Love” by Paul Hewson, Dave Evans, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen from Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.
Finger crossed for “Frozen”
Wishing you Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust
