ORIGINAL SONG
Earned It (Fifty Shades Of Grey)
Monterey (Racing Extinction)
Simple Song #3 (Youth)
Til It Happens To You (The Hunting Ground)

I correctly predicted 4/5. I had The Martian in here over Carol (which I listed as a wildcard)

BEST DOCUMENTARY
Amy
Cartel Land
The Look Of Silence
What Happened Miss Simone
Winter On Fire: Ukraine’s Fight For Freedom

I correctly predicted 3/5. I knew The Hunting Ground was divisive. I should have left it out.
