There are four songs vying for Best Original Song at this Sunday’s Oscars. Los Angeles Times music writer Todd Martens joins Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson to preview the field.

  • “Let It Go” from “Frozen”
  • “Happy” from “Despicable Me 2”
  • “The Moon Song” from “Her”

Though there are some major stars writing several of the songs in this category, Todd Martens says “Let it Go” is “definitely the favorite.”
