The Beyhive Go Wild as Beyoncé Receives Her First Oscar Nomination

Beyoncé has been nominated for her first Oscar for the song "Be Alive," and the Beyhive are losing their minds with excitement.

The singer performed the track for King Richard, the biopic that tells the story of Venus and Serena Williams' father Richard, and stars Will Smith in the title role.

The nod marks the first time Beyoncé has been nominated at the Academy Awards as the singer was previously shortlisted for Lion King's "Spirit," which was not nominated for the awards show's 2020 ceremony.

Beyoncé was nominated alongside Dixson for the song and they are joined in the category by Billie Eilish, who was tapped for "No Time to Die," Lin-Manuel Miranda for Encanto's "Dos Oruguitas," Van Morrison for "Down to Joy" in Belfast, and Diane Warren for Four Good Days' "Somehow You Do."

Beyoncé's fans took to Twitter to share their reactions to the news, with many congratulating the star and saying she will "get that Oscar."

Gushing over the singer's achievement, one fan wrote: "Receiving her first Oscar Nom nearly 25 years into her career, who else is doing it like her?! No one! No one has the legend status as well as the longevity, Beyoncé is incomparable."

Another added: "BEYONCÉ IS AN OSCAR NOMINEE," while one fan said she was "really a Queen" and they were "so proud" of her.

Sharing their support for both Beyoncé and Will Smith, who was nominated for Best Actor for his role in King Richard, one fan said: "I need will smith and Beyoncé to win an oscar this year. I need it."

Along similar lines, one fan wrote: "Congrats Beyonce for her first Oscar nom. And, hopefully, Will Smith, will collect his gold this year. Both are nominated for their contributions to King Richard."

Several music fans shared their excitement over both Beyoncé and Eilish getting nods in the same category.

"No Time to Die" is also the first Oscar nomination for Eilish, who created the James Bond theme tune for Daniel Craig's final outing as 007.

Detailing their love for both singers, one person wrote: "Yes bey deserves oscar!but also billie too!no time to die is soo good [sic]."
