Coldplay’s Chris Martin is among those nominated in the Best Song category for the 2011 Oscars.
41 songs are longlisted for the award, with the winner set to be announced at the Oscars ceremony on February 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles.
Martin is nominated for his song ‘Me And Tennessee’, which features on the soundtrack to forthcoming film Country Strong, starring his wife Gwyneth Paltrow as a down-on-her-luck country singer.
Other artists nominated include Janet Jackson and Alanis Morissette.
The 41 songs will be whittled down to no more than five by the time the full Oscar nominations are announced on January 25.
