Taylor Swift already has 11 Grammys and an Emmy to her name, but she could potentially be adding an Oscar to her award collection next year.
The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that the star’s recent project All Too Well: The Short Film has qualified to be eligible for a nomination in the Best Live Action Short category at next year’s Academy Awards.
The outlet reported that Swift is apparently in talks with a “top consulting firm to guide [the project’s] awards campaign,” to increase her chances of a nomination.
The ‘I’d Lie’ singer directed the short film to accompany the release of her ten-minute song ‘All Too Well’ last November on Red (Taylor’s Version). The film stars Dylan O’Brien and Sadie Sink.
The eligibility window for best live-action short is different of that for feature films — anything released from October 1, 2021, to September 30 2022 can be nominated.
Though this is Swift’s first short film, she has directed six of her own music videos in the past, including those for ‘cardigan’, ‘The Man’, and ‘ME!’.
If everything goes her way, Swift could even walk home with two Oscars at next year’s ceremony. In June, the singer wrote and recorded the track ‘Carolina’ to accompany the film Where The Crawdads Sing. As it’s the first song to appear in the movie’s credit sequence, it’s eligible to be nominated for Best Original Song.
Though Swift has never been nominated for an Academy Award, she has received three Golden Globe nominations in the past for original songs penned for motion pictures.
She also won a primetime Emmy in 2015 for Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media.
Just a few months ago, the pop star spoke about how much she’d love to explore directing more as a career path.
“I would love to [make a feature film],” she said in an interview at the Tribeca Film Festival. “It would be so fantastic to write and direct something.”
