Did They Get it Right? – Best Original Song – Oscars 2021

Here are the five nominees: (Winner in Bold)

“Be Alive” from King Richard – Music and lyrics by DIXSON and Beyoncé Knowles-Carter
“Dos Oruguitas” from Encanto – Music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda
“Down to Joy” from Belfast – Music and lyrics by Van Morrison
“No Time to Die” from No Time to Die – Music and lyrics by Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell
“Somehow You Do” from Four Good Days – Music and lyrics by Diane Warren

Biggest Snub:

“Beyond the Shore” – CODA

My Overall Thoughts:

This is a pretty weak category this year and despite all of the songs being enjoyable, there seems to be one clear frontrunner going in to Oscar night.

My Rankings:


5. Dos Oruguitas
4. Down to Joy
3. Somehow You Do
2. Be Alive
1. No Time to Die


5. Encanto
4. Four More Days
3. King Richard
2. No Time to Die
1. Belfast

Do I agree with the Oscar winner? – Yep!  This James Bond song is great and quite worthy of taking home Gold
