Scarlett Johansson didn’t receive an Oscar nomination on Thursday morning, but the actress could be a part of the 85th annual Academy Awards anyway. Johansson sings the Oscar-nominated song “Before My Time” from the documentary “Chasing Ice.” The music and lyrics are by J. Ralph, who gets credit for the Oscar nomination.
“Chasing Ice” was expected to earn a nomination for Best Documentary Feature, but it was left off that list. It did make the cut for Best Original Song, however, joining “Everybody Needs a Friend” from “Ted,” “Pi’s Lullaby” from “Life of Pi,” “Skyfall” from “Skyfall” and “Suddenly” from “Les Miserables.”
“Before My Time” is a mournful track that ran over the credits for “Chasing Ice.” According to IMDb, the film follows “National Geographic photographer James Balog across the Arctic as he deploys time-lapse cameras designed for one purpose: to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers.”
Listen to “Before My Time” here. The 85th annual Academy Awards happen on Feb. 24; Johansson is not confirmed to appear just yet.
