Taylor Swift could soon be adding Oscar nominee to her long list of accolades.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the singer-songwriter's recent project, All Too Well: The Short Film, has qualified to be eligible for an Academy Award nomination in the Best Live Action Short category at next year's Oscars ceremony.

Swift is already working with a "top consulting firm to guide [the project's] awards campaign," the outlet added in a report on Saturday.

All Too Well: The Short Film – described by Swift as "a film about an effervescent, curious young woman who ends up completely out of her depth" – was written and directed a decade after the release of the hitmaker's power ballad All Too Well.

The 14-minute production forms part of her re-recorded 2012 album Red, which she released under the titled Red (Taylor's Version) in November 2021.

The film, which premiered on YouTube, stars actors Dylan O'Brien (Teen Wolf) and Sadie Sink (Stranger Things).

Kendrick Lamar's We Cry Together, a six-minute film starring himself and Zola's Taylour Paige as a quarrelling couple, also qualifies for the race. Lamar made the short film to supplement his song of the same name that was featured on the album he released in May, Mr Morale & the Big Steppers.
