This just in! The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have chosen 70 songs to be ‘considered’ for a ‘Best Original Song’ nomination.

Those who have been chosen for consideration include Nick Jonas, Mariah Carey and Taylor Swift and Zayn for their Fifty Shades Darker track, ‘I Don’t Wanna Live Forever’.


A post shared by Zayn Malik (@zayn) on

Mariah’s song ‘The Star for the Christian’, from the animated film of the same name and Nick Jonas’ Home (from Ferdinand – an animated movie) have also been chosen for consideration.

And 70 songs, in comparison to last year is nothing! Last year the Academy had at least 93 songs to choose from for the nominee category.

How this works … as of right now, there are 70 songs to be considered.  The Academy must then choose only five for its category and the final list of nominees will be announced Jan. 23 of next year for the 90th Academy Awards.

*Fingers crossed for Taylor & Zayn*
