10 awesome Grammy-nominated movie songs the Oscars ignored

So the Grammy Awards are right around the corner. Sunday, in fact. And the annual crossover with the film world yielded the usual year-straddling assortment of last season's offerings and those currently on the circuit.

In the Best Song Written for Visual Media category in particular, “Everything is Awesome” (“The LEGO Movie”) and “I'm Not Gonna Miss You” (“Glen Campbell…I'll Be Me”) went on to land Oscar nominations as well. They were joined by 2013 Oscar players “Let It Go” (“Frozen”) and “The Moon Song” (“Her”). “I See Fire” from “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” was the only non-Oscar nominee of the bunch this time around.

On that point, over the years the Grammys have shown up for a number of great movie tracks that the film Academy's Music Branch passed on for whatever reason (sometimes due to stricter eligibility requirements, but generally reflecting a very different taste). I thought I'd go through the list and pull out a few choice examples.

Check them out in the story gallery below, and if we're missing anything you would definitely include, speak up in the comments!
