Best Original Song 2014: “Hold On” from Rudderless

Written by: Simon Steadman and Charlton Pettus
Performed by: Selena Gomez and Ben Kweller

  • Gomez and Kweller also act in Rudderless

Awards: N/A
Nominations: N/A
Charts (U.S.): N/A

Festivals:

  • Sundance Film Festival (2014) – World Premiere

Why? “Hold On” is right up the music branch’s alley; the song will have a music video, so this will probably be the big original-song hopeful from Rudderless. Gomez’s performing of the song gives it more exposure than it’d otherwise have…

Why not? Bigger movies/songs might overshadow Rudderless/”Hold On.”

Personal Thoughts: It’s a cute song; it’s refreshing to hear Gomez use her lovely voice on songs like this. A bit repetitive, though.
