    This morning, the nominees for the 2017 Academy Awards were revealed. This year's Best Original Song category is stacked with some of the biggest names in music. Justin Timberlake is nominated for "Can't Stop This Feeling," his song from the Trolls soundtrack. Sting is up for "The Empty Chair," a song that he and composer J. Ralph wrote for the HBO documentary Jim: The James Foley Story. Lin-Manuel Miranda's song "How Far I'll Go," from Moana is also on the list. They will be going up against songs from La La Land's two stars, Emma Stone's "Audition" and Ryan Gosling's "City Of Stars."

    Meanwhile, the Best Original Score category sees indie artists facing off against more traditional film composers. Mica Levi, who also makes music as part of Micachu & The Shapes, is nominated for her score for Jackie. German composer Hauschka and Dustin O'Halloran, half of the ambient duo A Winged Victory For The Sullen, are both nominated for their score for Lion. Meanwhile the other three nominations were picked up by more conventional composers: Nicholas Britell for Moonlight, Thomas Newman for Passengers, and, Justin Hurwitz for La La Land.
