'Breakthrough' Song Nominated for an Academy Award

A song from the movie Breakthrough has been nominated for the Academy Awards' "Best Original Song."

"I'm Standing With You" by Diane Warren appeared on the list of nominees the Academy published on Twitter.

Other nominees include:

  • "I Can't Let You Throw Yourself Away Again," music and lyrics by Randy Newman, from Toy Story 4
  • "(I'm Gonna) Love Me Again," music by Elton John, lyrics by Bernie Taupin, from Rocketman
  • "Into the Unknown," music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, from Frozen 2
  • "Stand Up," music and lyrics by Joshuah Brian Campbell and Cynthia Erivo, from Harriet

Breakthrough features the true story of John Smith, who came back to life after drowning in an icy lake. After an hour of John being dead, his mother, Joyce Smith, prayed for the Holy Spirit to raise her son from the dead. The way John and Joyce tell the story, John's heart began beating immediately after his mother's prayer.

In October, Breakthrough won "Inspirational Film of the Year" at the 50th GMA Dove Awards.

Watch a moving rendition for "I'm Standing With You" performed by Chrissy Metz with clips from the movie.
