Oscar nominated song disqualified by Academy

A small independent movie, Alone Yet Not Alone has had it’s song of the same title disqualified from the Academy Awards due to it’s writer sending out emails asking people to consider it.

After careful consideration by the Academy, it was decided the song would be revoked from the competition.

The author of the song featured in the little-heard of movie, Bruce Broughton had this to say: “I’m devastated. I indulged in the smallest grassroots campaign and it went against me when the song started to get attention. I got taken down by competition that had months of promotion and advertising behind them. I simply asked that people find the song and consider it”.
