Grammy nominees Sting, Bjork and Bob Dylan are also in the running for a best song Oscar.
Also nominated in the category are soundtrack mainstay Randy Newman and the trio of Jorge Calandrelli, Tan Dun and James Schamus.
Dylan, whose Oscar- and Grammy-nominated track “Things Have Changed” from the “Wonder Boys” soundtrack was also feted with the original song award at the Golden Globes last month, could take home three statuettes for the same song by the end of March.
Sting was nominated along with David Hartley for “My Funny Friend and Me,” from the soundtrack to “The Emperor’s New Groove.”
Bjork was tapped with Lars von Trier and Sjon Sigurdsson for “I’ve Seen It All,” a track from the von Trier film “Dancer in the Dark.”
Newman was nommed for “A Fool in Love” from “Meet the Parents.” Calandrelli, Tan and Schamus got the nod for “A Love Before Time,” from martial-arts epic “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.”
Bjork is up for Grammys in the pop instrumental performance and instrumental arrangement accompanying a vocalist(s) categories. Sting, who already has six Grammys to his name, is up for a Grammy in male pop vocal performance. Dylan, who has five Grammys on his mantel, is in the running for male rock vocal performance and song written for a motion picture.
