Billie Eilish Wins First Oscar For “No Time To Die”
Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas won their very first Oscar tonight for Best Original Song at the 94th Academy Awards. The songwriting pair nabbed the golden statue with their track “No Time To Die”, which they wrote for the latest Bond film of the same name.
Earlier in the night, the event included a tribute to the James Bond franchise, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary in film. Billie and her brother also performed a beautiful rendition of “No Time To Die” with Finneas playing piano and Billie delivering emotional vocals.
The siblings earned the honor as the youngest composers to write a Bond song. At 20 years old,, Billie Eilish also made history as the youngest triple crown winner in an award season, taking home a Grammy, a Golden Globe and an Oscar all for the same song.
Eilish could have even more awards on the horizon at next week’s Grammy Awards. Billie and Finneas are nominated for seven Grammys this year.
