The award for Best Song was introduced at the the 7th Oscar ceremony in 1935 and since then the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has awarded iconic songs from a variety of music and film genres. From ballads to hip hop and from animation to foreign language films, all have been represented.
