Best Song Oscars

American Jukebox® 218


And the Oscar for the Best Song written for a film goes to...

Since the category of "Best Song Written For A Motion Picture" was first established in 1934, some of our most beloved songs have come from the movies. The Continental was the first song to receive the Oscar. For the next 80+ years hundreds of songs have been nominated for the award. The Academy voters pick the winner. But the many of the nominated songs are considered even better than the "winners." In this edition of American Jukebox we look at 29 songs from the movies, both the winners and the nominees. We start with Never On Sunday, "Best Song Oscar" winner in 1960 and work our way through the '60's , '70s, '80s and '90s.
