Lately it feels like all we do is fill you in on the latest awards that your favorite musicians are up for. But you know, that’s not such a bad thing. Between the Grammy Awards, BRIT Awards, and People’s Choice Awards, we’ve been seeing some repeat nominees and winners. Take for example U2. They are recent winners of a Golden Globe for their track “Ordinary Love,” and now they’re up for an Oscar in the Best Original Song category for the same track, which can be heard in the film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. Or how about Grammy nominee Pharrell, who was up for an award for his work on Robin Thicke‘s Blurred Lines, and is now nominated for his songs “Happy” from Despicable Me 2, and “Alone Yet Not Alone” from the movie of the same name? And let’s not forget Karen O whose solo track “The Moon Song” (from Her, and written with director Spike Jonze) faces off with U2 for Best Original Song.
You can check out the full list of nominees below, and let us know in the comments who has your vote.
