This year we saw two Best Picture nominees with lots of dramatic musical performances, yet most were ineligible for this category. Bohemian Rhapsody utilized many Queen songs but wasn’t able to add any new music. A Star is Born’s “Shallow” seems unbeatable this year. Lady Gaga’s performance has been embraced by fans so intensely, it would be a shock to find anyone else holding the statuette.
