The legendary songwriter Diane Warren was presented with an honorary Oscar last November, but unlike a lot of past recipients of that prize, she’s nowhere near retirement.
Indeed, the 66-year-old is currently nominated for the best original song Oscar, for the tune “Applause” from the film Tell It Like a Woman — and is hoping that this 14th nomination in the category will defy the odds and become her first to ever win. No woman in Oscars history has ever received more Oscar noms in any category without taking home a competitive prize.
This week, Warren took THR on a musical walk down memory lane at RealSongs, her music publishing headquarters in Hollywood, performing a medley of all 14 of her nominated tunes in just over six minutes. It includes giant chart-toppers like “How Do I Live” and “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing,” as well as lower-profile gems such as “Grateful” and “I’ll Fight.” Take a listen at the top of this post!
At the Oscars on March 12, Warren will accompany actress/singer Sofia Carson at the 2023 Oscars on March 12 as Carson performs Warren’s nominated tune, “Applause.” The other nominees for best song at the 2023 Oscars are “Lift Me Up” from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, “Hold My Hand” from Top Gun: Maverick, “Naatu Naatu” from RRR and “This Is a Life” from Everything Everywhere All at Once.
