Sixty-three songs have made the short list for the original song category at the Oscars, including five from "Hannah Montana: The Movie" and four from "The Princess and the Frog."

On January 12, the Academy's Music Branch will screen clips featuring each song, and the members will determine the nominees by giving points. Any song that receives an average of 8.25 points or higher will be nominated, up to five songs total. If no songs receive a 8.25 average, there will be no songs nominated in the category.

This is a change from last year, when songs required an 8.5 score to be nominated, and a minimum of three songs had to be nominated. Overall, a maximum of two songs can be nominated from each film.

The Academy Award nominations will be announced on Feb. 2.
