Oscars Prediction: Best Original Song Winner
The betting market for the Original Song is one of the tightest out of all the Oscar categories. We like the look of the outsider Husavik performed by Will Ferrell and Molly Sanden in the Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga. This would be a surprise winner no doubt, but it's the only film in which bases itself around music and the rest of the favorites are mere credits songs!
