The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this morning that Sir Paul's song "Vanilla Sky" has received a "Best Original Song" Oscar nomination . Other songs in the running are Randy Newman's "If I Didn't Have You" from "Monsters, Inc."; Enya's "May It Be" from "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring,"; Diane Warren's "There You'll Be" from "Pearl Harbor,"; and Sting's "Until" from "Kate & Leopold".
This is the third time Sir Paul has received an Academy Award nomination. In 1973, he was honored for his song "Live And Let Die". Before that, in 1970, as a member of the Beatles, he won an Oscar for "Let It Be" which was selected as the best original song score.
Congratulations, Sir Paul!
