Beyonce to earn her first Oscar nomination

After accruing a whopping 23 Grammy Awards, Beyonce is one step closer to add an Oscar win to her list. The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences recently announced shortlists in consideration for the 92nd Academy Awards in nine categories. Of those categories, Queen Bey was nominated for her song Spirit from The Lion King. It's also the only film with two songs on the list (‘Never Too Late’ written by Tim Rice whereas Elton John is also nominated in the same category for Original Song). Despite recently being snubbed during the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards show after her highly-anticipated Netflix documentary, A Film by Beyonce was nominated for six categories and lost in every single one, it looks like she might be soon adding an Oscar to her mantel instead. According to a press release from The Academy, the 300-member music brand chose 15 songs from 75 entered and 15 scores from a list of 170. Both lists will be trimmed down to five each when voting for the nominations will begin in January.
