‘Alone Yet Not Alone’ disqualified from Original Song at 2014 Oscars

On Tuesday night, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Board of Governors voted to rescind the Original Song nomination for Alone Yet Not Alone (music by Bruce Broughton and lyric by Dennis Spiegel). The decision was prompted by the discovery that Broughton, a former Governor and current Music Branch executive committee member, had e-mailed members of the branch to make them aware of his submission during the nominations voting period.
