The singer responded to the honor:

"I'm so grateful to Tim (Burton) for letting me into his wild world and to Harvey (Weinstein) for encouraging me to continue to write for films. I'm honored that the Hollywood foreign press has nominated my song.”

Both Lana’s “Big Eyes” and “I Can Fly” appear in the soundtrack of the new film, which drops Dec. 25.

This isn't the first time a Lana Del Rey song will be featured prominently in a major motion picture: "Young and Beautiful" was one of the highlights of the much-hyped Great Gatsby soundtrack in 2013. It spent 21 weeks on the Hot 100 and peaked at No. 22.
