Taylor Swift has CMA Awards, ACM Awards, ACA Awards and even seven Grammys, but now she might add a Golden Globe trophy to her collection as well.

The singer is nominated for the coveted honor for Best Original Song, for the tune ‘Sweeter Than Fiction,’ from the British documentary, ‘One Chance,’ based on the life of British opera singer Paul Potts. Swift wrote the song with Jack Antonoff, band member of the group, fun.

Swift will have some stiff competition in the category. Her fellow nominees include Coldplay’s ‘Atlas,’ from ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’, Idina Menzel’s ‘Let It Go from ‘Frozen,’ U2’s ‘Ordinary Love’ from ‘Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom,’ and Justin Timberlake’s ‘Please Mr. Kennedy,’ from ‘Inside Llewyn Davis.’

This is not Swift’s first Golden Globe nomination. She was also nominated last year for ‘Safe and Sound,’ her collaboration with the Civil Wars, for ‘The Hunger Games.’

The news came at a great time for the songstress. The nominations were announced on Dec. 12, one day before Swift’s 24th birthday. She also received the American Country Award on Tuesday (Dec. 10), for Worldwide Artist of the Year.

The Golden Globes will air live on Sunday, Jan. 12 on NBC.
