The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has unveiled the shortlists for several categories at the 2024 Oscars (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.

Buy Dua Lipa vinyl and CDs at the Dig! store.

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. The full shortlists for Best Original Score and Best Original Song are laid out below. All of the nominees will be revealed on 23 January.

The 2024 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.

Last year, the 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.
