It was good morning indeed for Common and John Legend, as their song 'Glory' from the movie Selma was among the five nominated for the Best Original Song Oscar.
Since 'Glory' already won Best Original Song at the Golden Globes, Common and Legend would have to be considered the favorites for the more prestigious Academy Award.
The other Best Original Song nominees are The Lonely Island (yup, Adam Sandler's group) and Tegan and Sara for 'Everything Is Awesome' from The Lego Movie, Rita Ora's "Grateful" from Beyond the Lights, Adam Levine and Keira Knightley for 'Lost Stars' from Begin Again and Glen Campbell's 'I'm Not Gonna Miss You' from Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me.
Birdman and The Grand Budapest Hotel led all movies with nine nominations each, including Best Picture nods. The Oscars will air February, 22 at 8:30 PM on ABC.
