Written and performed by: Janelle Monáe
- Hollywood Music in Media (2014) – Song for an Animated Film
Why? Rio (2011) was a nominee here, despite missing out in the animated feature film category. It’s a catchy, fun tune that’s an earworm if nothing else. (Maybe it’ll hit radio in the near future?) Janelle Monáe is a highly respected music artist, and she seems to be serious about this campaign, too.
Why not? The peculiar voting system that likely helped the first film get a nomination? It’s no longer in use.
Ranking: No. 17 as of Nov. 18, 2014
