Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood and Billie Eilish are among the nominees for the 2022 Oscars.

Greenwood is up for Best Original Score for his work on the film The Power of the Dog. He was previously nominated for the award at the 2018 Oscars, for his Phantom Thread score.

Eilish’s James Bond theme “No Time to Die” will compete for Best Original Song. “No Time to Die” has previously won a Grammy and a Golden Globe.

In a statement, Eilish and her brother and co-writer FINNEAS say, “Words cannot describe how honored and excited we are to have been nominated for an Academy Award for our song ‘No Time to Die.'”

“It was a lifelong dream of ours to write a Bond theme, and one we never thought would ever come true,” they add. “It’s completely unbelievable that we are here being recognized for this song, and this is a peak life experience for us as songwriters and artists. To be recognized today among these other incredible nominees is something we most certainly do not take for granted.”

The 2022 Oscars will air live March 27 on ABC.
