This is a rare occurrence for sure, but the Academy's Board of Governors has rescinded the Best Original Song nomination for Alone Yet Not Alone. Reasoning has been cited as insider campaigning. Former Academy member Bruce Broughton, and writer of the film's song, apparently sent a hefty amount of emails to his Academy friends in order to bring the attention to the song and to the film. The Board came to a conclusion that Broughton's actions were not in compliance with the promotional regulations and policies in place and that including the film would make the competition unfair and biased.
Despite losing out on one nominee, the Academy also concluded that there will be no replacement named. The Best Original Song category will now only have four nominees. Those nominees are:
"Happy" by Pharrell Williams - Despicable Me 2
"Let It Go" by Kristen Anderson-Lopez & Robert Lopez - Frozen
"The Moon Song" by Karen O. & Spike Jonze - Her
"Ordinary Love" by U2 - Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom
