Fifty-nine songs from eligible features are in the running for the 80th Academy Awards' original song category.

On January 15 the Academy will screen clips featuring each song, in random order, for voting members of the music branch in both Beverly Hills and New York City. Following the screenings, members will vote to determine three, four or five nominees.

To be eligible, a song must consist of original words and music written specifically for the film. A clearly audible, intelligible, substantive rendition of both lyric and melody must be used in the body of the film or as the first music cue in the end credits.
