Best Original Song 2014: “Not About Angels” from The Fault in Our Stars

Written and performed by: Jasmine van den Bogaerde, a.k.a. Birdy

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

  • Billboard Hot Rock Songs: No. 23

Why? The up-and-coming Birdy’s melancholic piano ballad plays during an emotional highlight of the film. The soundtrack for The Fault in Our Stars is massively popular.

Why not? Ed Sheeran’s contribution – the end-credits weeper “All of the Stars” – might have a better shot, considering the singer-songwriter’s current stance in the industry. Even if it’s “just” in a music category, Fault skews very young for Oscar.

Ranking: No. 2 as of Aug. 26, 2014
