Win Your Oscar Pool: Who to Bet On

Adele Skyfall James Bond
SONG
"Before My Time," Chasing Ice
"Everyone Needs a Best Friend," Ted
"Pi's Lullaby," Life of Pi
"Skyfall," Skyfall
"Suddenly," Les Miserables
Will win: "Skyfall." It's by Adele. Case closed.
Should win: Adele's Bond song is just a smidge overrated (though probably less overrated than your average Adele song), but she'll give a charming acceptance speech and it's also one of only two songs in this category that I actually remember hearing, so let's go with that.
Missing: I was going to say there's no point in lamenting the absence of the Liz Phair song "Dotted Line," featured prominently in the barely-seen Chris Pine/Elizabeth Banks dramedy People Like Us, but who the hell saw Chasing Ice?
