The singer scored a Golden Globe nod on Monday, as she and legendary composer Andrew Lloyd Webber were nominated for Best Original Song for "Beautiful Ghosts," the new song they wrote for the upcoming film adaptation of Webber's iconic musical, Cats.
The nomination is the third Golden Globe nod for both artists. Swift was previously nominated for Best Original Song in 2013 for her song "Safe and Sound" with The Civil Wars, from The Hunger Games soundtrack, and in 2014 for "Sweeter than Fiction" from One Chance. Webber won the category in 1997 for his song "You Must Love Me," from Evita and was nominated again in 2004 for "Learn to Be Lonely" from the film adaptation of Phantom of the Opera.
"I woke up today to the news that 'Beautiful Ghosts' is nominated for a Golden Globe - it’s so cool that one of the most fun, fulfilling creative experiences I’ve ever had is being honored in this way by the HFPA," Swift wrote on Instagram, alongside a series of photos of her and Webber working together on the song. "I ended up spending many days on set watching the other performers do their scenes. Watching the character Victoria, played by @frankiegoestohayward inspired me so much and 'Beautiful Ghosts' was the result. Congrats to my co-writer and buddy 4 life Andrew Lloyd Webber. This is just purrfect. ?."
Though she doesn't perform the song in the film, Swift does have a principal role in Cats, which is in theaters on Dec. 20. She plays Bombalurina, a flirtatious, mischievous cat who is seen in the trailer sprinkling catnip on her fellow felines.
"I was so excited when @andrewlloydwebber asked me to write an original song with him for @catsmovie," the singer previously posted on Instagram. "'Beautiful Ghosts' is performed in the film by the extraordinary @frankiegoestohayward who plays 'Victoria' and reprised by Dame Judi Dench (!!!!!) who plays 'Old Deuteronomy' ?."
