Is it a video? Is it a video?” No, it’s the Best Original Song Oscar short list! The 70 songs that could score a nomination for Best Original Song have been released, and yes, the Sufjan Stevens songs you’ve been softly weeping to all winter made the cut. Both “Visions of Gideon” (the track that plays over the end credits) and “Mystery of Love” are on the list, plus some other notable original tunes from 2017: “Remember Me” from Coco, “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” from Fifty Shades Darker, plus Mudbound’s “Mighty River.” (Importantly, one of the mouth-breathe-y songs from King Arthur made the cut.)
