Organisers of Oscars withdrew the song Alone Yet Not Alone from the Best Song Nomination category on 30 January 2014.

The rare and historical move came following the composer Bruce Broughton emailing voting members to highlight his candidacy, which is strictly banned for Academy executives.

Alone Yet Not Alone, from the film of the same name, was a surprise inclusion in the five-strong short list for best original song unveiled by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on 16 January 2014.

image Broughton had written the song with lyricist Dennis Spiegel. Broughton is a former Academy governor and current member of its music branch executive committee.

Alone Yet Not Alone is a historical drama set in 1760s America.

The Academy did not replace the song on its short list, leaving only four best original song nominees for Oscar Awards. The Oscar Awards are scheduled to be held on 2 March 2014.

Earlier also Oscar Academy withdrew the nomination. In 1953 it withdrew the song Variety noted whereas in 1973 it withdrew the nomination for the score for The Godfather because parts of it had been used in an earlier movie.
