Here are the five best original song nominees:
“All the Stars” From “Black Panther”
Lamar penned the title track, “All the Stars,” for the soundtrack of “Black Panther,” the box office sensation that also impressed critics. He performed the song with SZA and co-wrote it with Mark Spears, Al Shuckburgh, Solana Rowe, and Anthony Tiffith.
“Girl in the Movies” From “Dumplin’”
Off the soundtrack of “Dumplin’,” a musical drama about the plus-sized daughter of a former beauty queen, this Parton-penned song is one of many tracks she wrote for the soundtrack.
“Requiem For a Private War” From “A Private War”
Lennox channeled real emotion to write this original song for “A Private War,” the story of real-life journalist Marie Colvin, who Lennox knew personally before Colvin died while reporting in Syria in 2012.
“Revelation” From “Boy Erased”
For the soundtrack to “Boy Erased,” a film about the son of a preacher who is forced to go through gay conversion therapy, Sivan co-wrote this track with Jonsi from Sigur Ros.
“Shallow” From “A Star Is Born”
Written by Gaga, Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt, the top track from “A Star is Born” became a chart-topping radio single.
