Voting for the Academy Awards started Friday, and will run through January 12. To grab voters’ attention, there’s a new add for one of the contenders in the documentary category — and it features a song that’s also eligible for an Oscar nod.
The documentary is An Inconvenient Sequel, a follow-up to Al Gore’s Oscar-winning 2006 climate change-themed documentary, An Inconvenient Truth. OneRepublic recorded a song for the movie called “Truth to Power,” and it’s featured in the ad as well.
OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder, who co-wrote “Truth to Power,” is gunning for a Best Original Song nod for it. The original movie’s theme song, by Melissa Etheridge, won the Oscar that year.
