Sir Elton is willing to bet that Mark Ronson will win the Oscar for Best Original Song for Shallow from A Star is Born.
The rock veteran spoke to Ronson on the latest episode of his Rocket Hour radio show.
“You’re having a bit of a run at the moment. Oh my God — considering what a career you’ve had, you couldn’t have a stronger moment than what you’re having now with the Miley record, which is fantastic, and you. And then the Gaga, which you won a Golden Globe for, ‘ Shallow,’ ” said Elton. “And I bet my house that you’re going to win the Oscar, so make room for it. I don’t want to jinx it, but I guarantee you you’re going to win an Oscar.”
Ronson was modest, maintaining that he had to get nominated first. The results came in Tuesday morning: Shallow was indeed nominated for an Academy Award.
