The Best Song isn't usually one of the most important categories at the Oscars, but this year was different .

The Title song from the film, "Alone Yet Not Alone," got a surprise nomination, only to be disqualified due to the songwriter's connections to the Academy. The remaining four contenders were: "Let It Go," from "Frozen"; "Happy," from "Despicable Me 2"; "The Moon Song," from "Her"; and "Ordinary Love," from "Mandela: The Long Walk to Freedom."

And the Oscar for Best Song goes to... "Let It Go," from "Frozen."
