Taylor Swift has a No. 1 song with “Look What You Made Me Do,” the first single from her upcoming album Reputation (due Nov. 10), and the pop star may soon have the chance to check another accolade off her list.
The Hollywood Reporter has learned Universal Pictures, the distributor of Fifty Shades Darker, which was released in February, is laying the groundwork for a campaign to bring Swift and three of her collaborators — former One Direction singer Zayn Malik, plus writers Jack Antonoff and Sam Dew — a best original song Oscar nomination for “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever,” the song that they contributed to that film’s soundtrack.
“Universal is fully supportive of the song’s campaign for awards of merit consideration,” a studio spokesperson confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter, while declining to get into specific plans.
“I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” was released ahead of the film on Dec. 9, 2016. It debuted at No. 1 on the Digital Songs chart and reached No. 2 in the U.S. on Billboard’s Hot 100, Adult Top 40 and Mainstream Top 40 lists. And it was Swift’s 20th song to crack the top 10 on the Hot 100 list, making her just the sixth female music artist ever to achieve that feat.
Lest you question if the venerable Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ music branch would ever bestow its seal of approval on a song featured in a Fifty Shapes of Grey film, remember that “Earned It,” a chamber pop song written by the Weeknd and collaborators for the original Fifty Shades of Grey film in 2015, did indeed receive a best original song Oscar nom. Meanwhile, another song from that film, Ellie Goulding‘s”Love Me Like You Do,” garnered a best original song Golden Globe nomination.
