While there might be some discussion about which films or people might have been snubbed at this year’s Academy Awards, the nominees in the music categories have been praised for being both diverse and deserved.
We’ve assembled three playlists below for your pre-Oscar partying pleasure. The Oscars: Nominees for the 85th Academy Awards - Original Song pits Adele against Hugh Jackman, while The Oscars: Nominees for the 85th Academy Awards - Best Original Score finds pictures like Skyfall and Lincoln duking it out for top honors. But the big “award” here goes to The Oscars: Academy Award Winning Songs, an epic retrospective of all of the Oscar-winning songs from 1934 to the present.
Use these to get in the mood for the 85th Annual Academy Awards, which is hosted by Seth Macfarlane and airs live on February 24 on ABC.
