Eilish and her brother, Finneas, are up for Best Original Song for Barbie’s “What Was I Made For?”. They will also be performing it during the show.

When the Oscar nominations were announced, Eilish and Finneas reflected on what a privilege it was to be nominated again. “Thank you so much to the members of @theacademy for nominating ‘What Was I Made For?’” Eilish wrote in an Instagram post. “We are endlessly grateful for this honor and to have been a part of @barbiethemovie 🎀”

In the carousel she shared, Eilish included a longer statement on behalf of hers and Finneas:

We are so incredibly honored to receive a nomination for “What Was I Made For?” As lifelong fans of film, music in film, and the Academy Awards, this means everything to us. We are so grateful to the Academy, its members, and to be recognized alongside so many songwriters that we respect and admire. Our deepest gratitude and thanks go out to the incomparable Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach for their genius vision and execution, the entire Barbie cast and crew, Lucky Chap Entertainment, and the Warner Bros. Pictures team. Thank you to Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt for weaving our song into the fabric and heart of this film so well. And a special shout-out to Margot Robbie for her incredible foresight as a producer and brilliant performance that resonate with us so profoundly when writing this song. We are truly honored. Thank you.

Eilish spoke to Entertainment Weekly in December about where her headspace was when she wrote the track. “It was a dark, slow period of time,” she said. “I was also in a weird place mentally in my life. We were in the studio and did come up with stuff, but nothing felt right. I don’t think I was able to be vulnerable and self-aware about my life and surroundings. That makes it hard to write sometimes. When we had this new thing to write about that wasn’t [about] my life, it was almost relieving. I didn’t have to worry about how I felt. I could just write from the perspective of this character. What was amazing is immediately after, I realized it was absolutely about me and my life. I didn’t even mean to do that.”
