Boost for Taylor Swift’s Reputation
TAYLOR SWIFT may need to clear a Blank Space in her trophy cabinet… for an Oscar.
The pop superstar has made the longlist nominations for best original song at next year’s Academy Awards.
Her steamy smash I Don’t Wanna Live Forever (feat Zayn) for the movie Fifty Shades Darker is among 70 tunes in the running.
Oscars chiefs must now whittle down the contenders — also including Mariah Carey and Sufjan Stevens — to five.
Taylor, 28, has collected her fair share of gongs in the past and, in 2009, was famously interrupted on stage by Kanye West while accepting best female video at the MTV VMAs.
