Beyoncé Knowles-Carter is finally an Oscar nominee!

The 40-year-old singer who’s already the female artist with the most Grammy wins, picked up her first Oscar nomination on Tuesday for best original song, “Be Alive,” a track she wrote for Best Picture nominee ‘King Richard’, starring Will Smith as the tough but loving father-coach, molding his daughters Venus and Serena Williams into tennis champions.

Although, this is Beyoncé’s first Oscar nomination, it is not her first film crossover. She was nominated for a Golden Globe for her role as Deena Jones in the 2006 film adaptation of the Broadway musical “Dreamgirls”; starred as the R&B singer Etta James in the 2008 biopic “Cadillac Records.” She also scored a nod for Nala in the 2019 live-action remake of “The Lion King,” in addition to recording music for that film’s soundtrack.

Beyoncés “Be Alive” is up against “Dos Oruguitas” from Encanto by Lin-Manuel Miranda; “Down to Joy” from Belfast by Van Morrison; “No Time to Die” from No Time to Die by Billie Eilish and Finneas O’Connell; and “Somehow You Do” from Four Good Days by Diane Warren.

The Oscars will air on ABC at 8 p.m. E.T. on March 27, 2022.
