Singer Elton John has a chance to win his second Oscar. The British superstar received a nomination in the best song category on Monday for the song I’m going to love me again from the movie Rocketman, which tells about the life of Elton John.
It is the first time that the 72-year-old singer has a chance to win an Oscar with his regular musical partner, copywriter Bernie Taupin. Elton John received three nominations in 1995 for all his work on the mega hit The Lion King . In the end he won the statue for the song Can you feel the love tonight .
The other films nominated in the best song category are Breakthrough (Dianne Warren), Frozen II , Harriet and Toy Story 4 (Randy Newman).
It is striking that Frozen II did not receive a nomination in the best animation film category. Most experts also expected more nominations for the Rocketman film . Actor Taron Egerton, for example, won a Golden Globe two weeks ago for his rendition of the flamboyant, troubled, gay mega-master.
