Eight-time Oscar nominee Diane Warren is the favorite this year in the best original song category at the Academy Awards. Industry insiders are predicting Warren and Lady Gaga, who collaborated on the Oscar-nominated song “Til It Happens to You,” will take the award.
When Billboard caught up with Warren on the Grammys red carpet, the Grammy winner and Oscar nominee confirmed she will not be joining Gaga onstage to perform their song at the upcoming ceremony. “I’ll be in the audience being blown away, like that whole room will be,” Warren says. Warren and Gaga co-wrote the song for The Hunting Ground, a 2015 documentary about rape on college campuses.
As for Warren’s future, she says she’s very much looking forward to the world hearing her work with a different artist. “I just did a couple of great songs with Big Sean, and I’m really excited about that because it’s different for me.”
