It bums me out that there doesn't seem to be any way to add polls to existing threads in the current version of the board, but oh well.

The nominees for the Oscar are (with the ones I've seen in bold):

  • "Earned It" from "Fifty Shades of Grey"
  • "Manta Ray" from "Racing Extinction"
  • "Simple Song #3" from "Youth"
  • "Til It Happens To You" from "The Hunting Ground"
  • "Writing's On The Wall" from "Spectre"

Interestingly, none of the nominated films in this category have nominations in any other category this year. Two of this year's songs were also nominated for issue-oriented documentaries -- which, again, weren't actually nominated in the documentary category.
