A few minutes later, they received the Oscar for Best Original Song from Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo. “I did not expect that. I feel incredibly lucky and honored, exclaimed the singer who was nevertheless listed as the favorite in the category. Thanks Greta, I love you! I’m so grateful for this song and this movie, and how they made me feel.”

The Oscar crowns a title already awarded in January with the Golden Globe for best original song in January. A month later, do it again. The song was nominated five times for the Grammy Awards, the American equivalent of the Victoires de la Musique.

And thanks to Greta Gerwig for making the best film of the year.” This is the fourth time she has won the Song of the Year award at the Grammys.

In 2022, their title No Time To Die, composed for the James Bond film of the same name, won over everything in its path. The Golden Globe and Grammy Award for Best Original Song in January and February. Then the consecration, a month later, with the Oscar for best song written for a visual medium. “We did it,” she wrote in the caption of an Instagram post.
