Diane Warren reveals she is ‘still in shock’ after nabbing her THIRTEENTH Oscar nomination


Diane Warren is ‘still in shock’ after nabbing her 13th Oscar nomination for her song in the film Four Good Days, Somehow You Do.

Speaking with DailyMail.com after the announcement, Warren, 65, said: ‘I am extremely excited this was a tough year, there are hundreds of songs. The Oscars have picked the best of the best, so whatever I win or not, just to get nominated is a win.’

Warren is the most nominated woman in Oscar history who has not won a trophy. Her latest feat marks her 13th nomination for Best Original Song and will see her battling it out against the likes of Beyonce, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Van Morrison, and Billie Eilish for the honor.

‘It feels great to be the most nominated woman in Oscar history in any category,’ Diane told DailyMail.com.   

Warren said it was ‘incredible’ knowing she has been recognized alongside the likes of Beyonce and the James Bond track No Time To Die, which was written by Eilish and her brother Finneas O’Connell. 

‘My mouth was open in shock, to be nominated alongside Beyonce’s song and the James Bond is incredible!’  

Just because Warren has received yet another Oscar nod doesn’t mean she’s going to take it easy just yet.

Somehow You Do was performed by Reba McEntire and written by Warren at the beginning of the pandemic.   

‘It’s a very competitive year, but the song resonates with people because of the pandemic. I wrote in the start of the pandemic and it got people through problems,’ Warren said.

The nominations for the 94th annual Academy Awards were announced on Tuesday morning with The Power Of The Dog and Dune earning the most nods.

Tracee Ellis Ross and Leslie Jordan announced the nominations across 23 categories from an early morning virtual in Los Angeles ahead of the ceremony on March 27.

Following its eight nods at last week’s BAFTA nominations and its three wins at January’s Golden Globes, The Power Of The Dog leads the nominations with 12 nods, including Best Picture, Leading Actor for Benedict Cumberbatch, Supporting Actress for Kirsten Dunst and Director and Adapted Screenplay for Jane Campion.

The Western drama is the film adaptation of Thomas Savage’s 1967 novel and was released in theatres as well as Netflix late last year.

The film’s stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Jesse Plemons and Kodi Smit-McPhee, who also both earned a Supporting Actor nomination on Tuesday, as secretive, psychologically duelling rivals on a 1920s Montana ranch.

Its nominations were for Supporting Actress, Achievement in Sound, Original Score, Adapted Screenplay, Supporting Actor, Film Editing, Cinematography, Production Design, Best Actor, Director and Best Picture.

Campion is the first woman to ever be nominated twice for best director. Last year, Chloé Zhao became the second woman to ever win the award. Meanwhile Campion’s director of photography on The Power Of The Dog, Ari Wegner, is the second woman ever nominated for Best Cinematography.

Going for the gold! The Power Of The Dog leads the nominations with 12 nods, including Best Picture, Leading Actor for Benedict Cumberbatch, Supporting Actress for Kirsten Dunst and Director and Adapted Screenplay for Jane Campion
