Ryan and Nicole break down the 5 nominees for the 2022 Best Original Song Oscar. They talk about how the category has had as few as 2 nominees (2011) in the past and they question whether this year should’ve had 5 nominees or not. They discuss Diane Warren’s winless streak and whether her song for Reba McEntire, “Somehow you Do” will finally get her a statue. From there, they discuss the Van Morrison heavy soundtrack to Belfast, and his nominated song, “Down to Joy”, Beyonce’s Doors sampling “Be Alive” from King Richard, Sebastian Yantra’s Lin Manuel Miranda written song “Dos Orugitas”, and Billie Eilish’s Bond theme. “No Time to Die”.
And even though it’s not nominated, Ryan and Nicole talk about Bruno and Ryan tries to explain why it’s not nominated.
