A Star is Born has been nominated for eight (8!) Oscars. Yes, you read it right!

Two performances were officially confirmed on the Academy's twitter account - marking some of the first official details they've released about the mysterious program so far.Those performances are Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson's "I'll Fight" from the Best Documentary nominee RBG and Mary Poppins Returns' "The Place Where Lost Things Go", which was performed by Emily Blunt in the film and will be sung by "a surprise special guest", according to the announcement. Well, Deadline reports the producers of the Oscars really did want to cut three of the songs, but either Gaga or her representatives pushed back on the "completely unfair" proposal and threatened to pull her "Shallow" performance. That's Best Picture, Best Lead Actor, Best Lead Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Sound Mixing, and Best Original Song.

Sources have said that the Best Song nominees had talked amongst themselves last week, and some of them agreed to a pact of solidarity, meaning that either all the songs would be performed or none of them would.
