Glen Campbell has won an Oscar nomination in the category of "original song" for "I'm Not Gonna Miss You." The song is from his documentary "Glen Campbell I'll Be Me." The movie tells the story of his diagnosis with Alzheimers Disease and his farewell tour that followed.
The song was written with friend Julian Raymond. "I'm Not Gonna Miss You" was the last song Campbell was able to record before losing his ability to sing. Campbell was moved to a special Alzheimers facility last April and he continues to undergo treatment for the disease.
Other nominations in the "Original Song" category include "Everything Is Awesome" from "The Lego Movie" music and lyric by Shawn Patterson; "Glory" from "Selma," music and lyric by John Stephens and Lonnie Lynn; "Grateful" from "Beyond the Lights," music and lyrics by Diane Warren; "Lost Stars" from "Begin Again" music and lyrics by Gregg Alexander and Danielle Briesebois.
