Academy announces songs up for Oscar nomination

HollywoodNews.com: The academy has announced 41 songs that are up for nomination in the ‘Best Original Song’ category. What songs will actually become nominees is still up in the air and will be decided through a vote using the averaged point system.

Potential nominees in the category show the wide range of spectacular movies that came out this year. Potential nominees include songs from motion pictures such as, Country Strong, Toy Story 3, Despicable Me, and the recently released Burlesque. Nominees will be chosen based on the average score that each song collects from voters.

This year was exceptional for songwriting in film and it looks like it will be a hard decision for Academy members looking to narrow down their choices. Songs must include both words and music that were originally composed for the film and must be featured prominently within the film or the end credits of the film. Here is the full list:
