Songs by Twenty One Pilots, Iggy Pop, Trent Reznor & More Eligible for Oscars

Image Group LA/ABCSongs written or co-written by Twenty One Pilots, Iggy Pop and Trent Reznor are among the 91 tracks eligible to be nominated for Best Original Song at the 2017 Oscars.

In order to be eligible, songs have to include original words and music specifically written for the movie, and a "clearly audible, intelligible, substantive rendition of both lyric and melody" has to be used either during the film, or as the first song you hear over the end credits. That means Twenty One Pilots' "Heathens," from Suicide Squad; Iggy Pop's "Gold," from Gold; and Reznor and Atticus Ross' "A Minute to Breathe," are all possible nominees.

Other Oscar eligible songs include Imagine Dragon's "Levitate," from Passengers; Florence + the Machine's Wish That You Were Here, from Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children; and The Lumineers' "Nobody Knows," from Pete's Dragon.

Pop's "Gold," which he co-wrote with Brian "Danger Mouse" Burton and the Gold film's director and composer, is already nominated for Best Original Song -- Motion Picture at the 2017 Golden Globes.

The nominations for the 89th Oscars will be announced January 24, and the awards themselves will air February 26 on ABC.
