NEW YORK (Billboard) - As was the case last year, three tunes from one movie will compete for the best original song Oscar at the Academy Awards on Sunday.

But it's not a given that one of the "Enchanted" entries will win. Last year, the three contenders from "Dreamgirls" were beaten by Melissa Etheridge's "I Need To Wake Up" from "An Inconvenient Truth."

Rounding out this year's field are "Falling Slowly" from the surprise hit "Once," and "Raise It Up" from "August Rush." Here is a look at the nominees.

FILM: "Once" (Fox Searchlight)

ARTIST(S): Music and Lyric by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova
