Her song "Wide Awake" is eligible...
Katy Perry told USA Today that she would love to win an Oscar. Her dreams may come true, as "Wide Awake" is eligible for a nomination for best original song. She wrote it for her film Katy Perry: Part of Me. Perry has already been nominated for nine Grammy awards.
She said: "It's like a dream's dream. When I was growing up and working on music, it was always a dream to win a Grammy, but Oscar was so far out of my dream sphere. This would be a nomination of a completely different caliber. One that is more impressive than many other ones I've had. It's interesting to step out of your playing field and to be recognized from a different angle. It would be an honor."
The Academy will announce the nominations on January 10, which include the five choices for best song.
Perry added: "I would never let it leave my side. I'd take it on tour and take pictures of it with me around the world."
She also said that just being nominated would be enough to get her to show up to the ceremony. She said: "If I had business being at the Oscars, I would make it my business to rock the red carpet. Basically I would dress like a winner."
