Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross and Jon Batiste picked up the prize at both the Golden Globes and Sunday’s Critics Choice Awards for the score for Disney and Pixar’s Soul and it looks like a lock for an original score Oscar nomination. It is a little less clear for the original song category with  “Io Sì (Seen)” from The Life Ahead (La Vita Davanti a Se) earning a Globe for Diane Warren, Laura Pausini and Niccolò Agliardi, while “Speak Now” from One Night in Miami… (credited to Sam Ashworth and Leslie Odom Jr.) won the Critics Choice Award in the same category.

According to Billboard, viewers have to wait till Monday to see who the Jonases announced in both music categories, while also looking out for possible music-adjacent acting nods for Odom as Sam Cooke in One Night, Globe winner Andra Day as Billie Holiday in The United States vs. Billie Holiday, and Viola Davis in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.

The Academy Awards are set to air on Sunday, April 25, on ABC.
