The decision to rescind the Academy Awards original song nomination for "Alone Yet Not Alone" from the small faith-based film of the same title is due to integrity, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences said in a statement Saturday.
The motion picture academy says it's rescinding the Academy Awards original song nomination for "Alone Yet Not Alone" from the film of the same name after it discovered composer Bruce Broughton emailed members of the group's music branch to make them aware of his submission during the nominations voting period.
At a meeting this week, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences board of governors decided to strip the surprise nomination for Best Song from "Alone Yet Not Alone," which appears in the independent Christian-produced film of the same name.
Broughton told the Los Angeles Times earlier this week that he was trying to get the independent film attention.
Movies like Disney's "Frozen" and Universal Pictures' "Despicable Me 2" ''had previews and parties and huge promotion," he said.
