The Black is King creator is nominated in the Best Original Song category.
Beyoncé can now add Oscar or Academy Award nominee to her ever-growing list of achievements. The singer is nominated for the track “Be Alive” featured in the Oscar-nominated film King Richard. She is nominated in the Best Original Song category alongside Diane Warren, Billie Eilish, Van Morrison and Lin Manuel-Miranda.
Beyoncé was previously shortlisted at the 2021 Academy Awards for her work on “Spirit” for The Lion King, which failed to receive a nomination. Last year wasn’t the first time that Beyoncé was left out of Oscar nominations: Her songs for Austin Powers in Goldmember, The Fighting Temptations and Dreamgirls all failed to receive recognition by the academy.
The Academy announced the 2022 Oscar nominees on Tuesday. The award ceremony is due to take place on March 27th, 2022.
