Alone Yet Not Alone has been nominated for an Academy Award in the category, “Best Original Song.” As one might expect, the Hollywood “establishment” are dissing the song wondering how it made the finalists since the song is from a relatively unknown micro-budget Christian movie. Hollywood Reporter has published a good piece in which Joni is interviewed about the song.
UPDATE: CNN reports (Jan 30, 2014) that, in a highly unusual move, the Academy has rescinded the nomination for “Best original song” for Alone Yet Not Alone. The Academy claims there was improper campaigning for the song by Bruce Broughton, the song’s composer, who emailed members during the voting period. By this action, the Academy is trying to protect “the reputation and integrity of the awards process.” Yeah … right.
