Kendrick Lamar Makes Shortlist for Best Original Song at 2019 Oscars
It's award nomination season, and it looks like Kendrick Lamar could be racking them up.
Following nominations for both the 2019 Grammy Awards and the 2019 Golden Globe Awards for his contribution to the Black Panther soundtrack, the SZA-assisted "All The Stars," K. Dot has been added to the Best Original Song shortlist for the 2019 Oscars. The list was announced late yesterday (Dec. 17).
Other names in the category include Sampha's “Treasure” from Beautiful Boy, Quincy Jones, Chaka Khan and Mark Ronson's “Keep Reachin’” from Quincy and Sade's “The Big Unknown” from Widows.
In a report published earlier this week, Kendrick denied any plans for a new album — though he did say he has been "jotting down thoughts, ideas and questions." He remained coy when asked what kind of questions he was pondering, but further elaborated that he's been writing a long-form creative project and had plans to hit the studio.
