15 January 2015, 14:35 | Written by Laurence Day

The nominations for the 2015 Academy Awards have been released: this year is dominated by quirky indies and British biopics, with the likes of The Imitation Game, Whiplash, Foxcatcher, Wild, The Theory Of Everything, American Sniper, Grand Budapest Hotel, Selma and Birdman up for some of the biggest gongs.

The Best Original Score and Best Original Song categories have also been announced. So who's gonna follow in the footsteps of "Let It Go" and "Skyfall"? Find out below.

Best Original Song

John Legend - "Glory (ft. Common)" from Selma

Tegan and Sara and The Lonely Island - "Everything Is Awesome” from The Lego Movie

Glen Campbell - "I’m Not Gonna Miss You" from Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me

Adam Levine - "Lost Stars" from Begin Again

Rita Ora - "Grateful" from Beyond The Lights

Best Original Score

The Grand Budapest Hotel - Alexandre Desplat

Interstellar - Hans Zimmer

The Theory of Everything - Jóhann Jóhannsson

The Imitation Game - Alexandre Desplat

Mr. Turner - Gary Yershon

Jóhann Jóhannsson created an exclusive Track By Track guide to his score for us recently, which you can read here.

Somehow The Lego Movie got royally snubbed from the Best Animated Film category, but as a wee consolation, they're scooped a few other nods. One is Best Original Song - which Tegan & Sara and The Lonely Island perform.

Yes, The Lonely Island are up for an Oscar for Best Original Song. The guys who wrote such lyrical heavyweights as "Dick In A Box" and "Jizz In My Pants" are up for an Oscar in the songwriting category. It's unlikely they'll win however, as Common x John Legend are already frontrunners for the prize.

Watch "Everything Is Awesome" below. By all accounts, it is indeed awesome.
