Taylor Swift’s ‘Cats’ Performance Shut Out Of Oscars, Beyonce Nominated

Taylor Swift’s “Beautiful Ghosts” does not land on the Oscars shortlist.

Mystery shrouds awards season, but we know one thing’s for sure: Taylor Swift will likely not receive an Academy Award for her “Beautiful Ghosts,” her song co-created for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats.

The shortlists for the 92nd Oscars nominees are in, and Taylor was nowhere to be found. However, Beyonce’s song “Spirit,” from The Lion King, made the cut.

  1. Well, to be honest, those other songs ARE better than ‘Beautiful Ghosts’. I can’t believe I’m saying this but ‘Spirit’ is actually a better song. Sorry ’bout it. Proof that even great lyricists can still make a bad song. 😬

      1. I’ve never met Taylor, but she is such a special talent. So many girls in the industry are killing it! #GirlPower 💖💋💋💋

  2. I hope the song “Speechless” from Aladdin wins. My boys and I love watching that movie! I used to sing that song in my foyer all the time. Maybe I’ll post the video if people stop being so mean online! 😵🐵🦋🎄

  3. I hope SPEECHLESS will win for Best song. I really enjoyed it in Aladdin which is, in my opinion, better than the Lion King. We’ll see then.
