Oscars 2024: Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Sharon Van Etten, Jarvis Cocker, and More Make Best Original Song Shortlist

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has unveiled the shortlists for several categories at the 2024 Academy Awards. Vying for nominations for Best Original Song are Dua Lipa and Billie Eilish for Barbie songs, as well as Olivia Rodrigo for “Can’t Catch Me Now,” Sharon Van Etten for “Quiet Eyes,” Jarvis Cocker for Asteroid City’s “Dear Alien (Who Art in Heaven),” and more.

Composers on the Best Original Score shortlist include Mica Levi, Mark Ronson, Ludwig Göransson, Joe Hisaishi, John Williams, the late Robbie Robertson, and Daniel Pemberton, among others. Find the full shortlists for Best Original Score and Best Original Song below. All of the nominees will be revealed on January 23.

The Oscars shortlists have some overlap with the 2024 Golden Globe Awards nominations. The Barbie songs “Dance the Night,” “What Was I Made For?,” and “I’m Just Ken” are nominated at the Golden Globes, as is Lenny Kravitz’s Rustin track “Road to Freedom.” And all six Original Score nominees at the Golden Globes are on the Oscars shortlist.

The 2023 Academy Award for Best Original Score went to Volker Bertelmann (aka Hauschka) for his work on All Quiet on the Western Front. And the Oscar for Best Original Song went to “Naatu Naatu” creators M.M. Keeravani and Chandrabose, who beat out Lady Gaga, Rihanna, David Byrne, and others.

In 2022, Billie Eilish and her brother, Finneas, won Best Original Song at the Academy Awards for “No Time to Die.” The musicians also played the James Bond song at the ceremony.
