Cinema’s biggest night is nearly upon us. The 2022 Academy Awards kick off on March 27 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, CA. The nominations were announced on Feb. 8, and they’re stacked with well-known celebs. Still, a few notable names were missing.

An awards season that saw many musicians appear in critically acclaimed films led to ample opportunity for big name pop stars like Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, and Alana Haim to land Oscar nominations. Unfortunately, some pop stars were completely snubbed on nomination day.

First, here’s something positive. Queen Bey landed her first-ever Oscars nomination this year. The singer, alongside songwriter songwriter DIXSON, received a nod for Best Original Song for “Be Alive.” Their musical contribution appears in the Williams sisters biopic King Richard.

Billie Eilish

Eilish was also one of the pop stars who did land an Oscar nomination this year. The songstress is up Best Original Song alongside her brother Finneas for “No Time to Die,” featured in the movie of the same name. Like Beyoncé, this is also Eilish’s first Oscar nomination.

Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande teamed up with Kid Cudi to record “Just Look Up” for the film, Don’t Look Up. They both appear in the movie, where they perform the song. If you hoped to see the song snag Oscar accolades, don’t hold your breath. The track received zero nominations.

Alana Haim

It wasn’t just song categories. The film Licorice Pizza picked up several nominations. Sadly, Alana Haim’s performance wasn’t one of them. The singer, who performs alongside her sisters in the band Haim, was ignored for her impressive breakout acting role.

Lady Gaga

It’s the end of the road for Lady Gag’s newsworthy Oscar campaign. Her film House of Gucci only landed one nomination: Best Achievement in Makeup and Hairstyling. Little Monsters were surprised to see the snub following her compelling lead performance as Patrizia Reggiani.
