Swedish songwriters Max Martin and Shellback have, together with Justin Timberlake, received their first Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song with ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ from Trolls!
With three Grammy Awards, the 2016 Polar Music Prize and a bunch of other awards and nominations under his belt, Swedish songwriting pioneer Max Martin has become an familiar name at music awards shows worldwide. Not only is he nominated in three categories at this year’s Grammy Awards, he has now received his very first Oscar nomination for Best Original Song with ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’!
The super-successful songwriter and producer is nominated with fellow Swede Shellback and American pop singer Justin Timberlake, who both co-wrote and co-produced the Trolls soundtrack which Timberlake performed. It debuted atop the US Billboard Hot 100 in May 2016 and quickly topped charts all over the world, as well as becoming the best-selling song of 2016 in the US with 2.49 million copies sold!
We wish the trio the best of luck at the Oscars!
