Day three! And it’s all about the tunes as we’re joined by Alejandra for the categories Best Original Score and Best Original Song for the 87th Academy Awards. Alexandre Desplat is the all star this year with two nominations and the Original Song is surprisingly fun with nominations for acts that will at the very least be entertaining live. Check out my highlighted song below as well as our video blog and the full list of nominees!

    I am hoping Hans Zimmer wins for Interstellar! :)
