The anthem by Oscar and Tony winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, Dear Evan Hansen) was up for Best Original Song at the 2018 Academy Awards March 4 after winning the 2018 Golden Globe. The ceremony featured a performance by Keala Settle, who belts out the number as bearded lady Lettie Lutz in the movie musical. The Tony nominee's live rendition at the Dolby Theatre brought the crowd of A-listers to their feet for a standing ovation.
