Although the Oscars are heavy on acting and directing, we're curious to see which song will take home the Oscar.

Looking at recognition and impact, it's not a tough competition. It ultimately comes down to one from a film that has gained a lot of traction gradually.

Here are the nominees:

"Everything Is Awesome"- The Lego Movie

"Glory"- Selma

"Grateful"- Beyond The Lights

"I'm Not Gonna Miss You"- Glen Campbell...I'll Be Me

"Lost Stars"- Begin Again

NT Prediction: "Glory" from "Selma"

It's likely the Golden Globe winner will take home the Oscars as well. And the reason is simple: the song has gained the most attention, and deservingly so. It conveys the message of "Selma" beautifully, and we automatically associate the song with the film.
