The 93rd Academy Awards, honoring the cinematic achievements of 2020 and the first two months of 2021, will be happening in about two weeks or so, and as I’ve done occasionally over the course of the past few years, I wanted to take a look at this season’s nominees for Best Original Song. I’ll offer my thoughts on each song, and at the end, I’ll predict which song will win and which song I would choose to win if I had the only vote. My predictions haven’t exactly had the best track record, but perhaps this might be a year I get it right.
The year is 2020, and coming up in a matter of days are the 92nd Academy Awards. I’ll be taking the day off from my retail job to watch them as I do every year, and I wanted to chime in with my thoughts on this year’s Best Original Song nominees. Of course, this isn’t the first year I’ve done so.
