Harry Styles may be the first One Direction member to break into acting, but if Universal Pictures has its way Zayn will be the Oscar winner. The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that the studio behind “Fifty Shades Darker” is pushing for an Academy Award nomination for “I Don’t Want To Live Forever.”
“Universal is fully supportive of the song’s campaign for awards of merit consideration,” a spokesperson for the studio told THR. If nominated, Zayn will be sharing the honor with his duet partner Taylor Swift and Jack Antonoff who both co-wrote the song with Sam Dew. After it’s December debut “IDWTLF” remained on the Billboard charts for 23 weeks–peaking at number two.
The Weeknd earned his own Academy Award nomination for his “Fifty Shades Of Grey” single “Earned It,” while Ellie Goulding received a Golden Globe nom for “Love Me Like You Do.”
