OSCAR ELIGIBLE MOVIE SONGS

The Motion Picture Academy released its "short" list of songs eligible for the Best Original Song Oscar. Only five will actually be nominated.

Some of the stars on the list include:

Ed Sheeran for "I See Fire" from The Hobbit

Coldplay for "Atlas" from The Hunger Games

"Let It Go" from Frozen

Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs for "The Moon Song" from Her

Jay Z for "$100 Bill" from The Great Gatsby (along with several other Gatsby tracks)
