Diane Warren will put her Oscar on her piano to look at every day

Diane Warren is finally getting her man…Oscar.

Warren, who has had 13 Academy Award nominations for Best Original Song – but has legendaryly yet to win – will receive an honorary Oscar. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced Tuesday that Warren, Euzhan Palcy and Peter Weir will receive honorary Oscars at this year’s Governors Awards ceremony on November 19 in Los Angeles.

The songwriter behind some of music’s biggest hits first received a nomination for Mannequin’s “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” in 1988, and that was just the beginning, although the flow of nominations would only become steady years later. Her next nomination came almost a decade later, in 1997 for the up-and-coming ballad “Because You Loved Me” from Up Close and Personal.

In the years that followed, with artists like Celine Dion and Lady Gaga singing her tunes, Warren was always a popular contender, an artist who works with passion each awards season. Her last nomination came in 2022 for “Somehow You Do” from Four Good Days, but she still eluded the Oscar until the Academy decided their collective work deserved more than recognition. diversity caught up with Warren on the afternoon of the announcement.

What did you do when you found out?

I heard about it a few days ago and didn’t tell anyone about it. But I’m still in shock. Is that real? Thing is — and what’s interesting — it just happened to be Father’s Day weekend, so someone is pulling the strings up there. In my head someone is watching over me.

I’m the only songwriter [to have been given the Governors Award]. That’s great. Everything the damn about it is amazing.

It came after nomination number 13. So which of the songs are you most proud of?

You love her for different reasons. Because You Loved Me goes back to my dad and thanks my dad for believing in me.

Or there is “Till it Happens to You” [from the sexual assault documentary “The Hunting Ground”] – The song with Lady Gaga had a lot of impact on the world. “Stand up for something” [from “Marshall”] because it’s that protest anthem and it’s used everywhere. So it’s cool that your songs have that impact. They are all different.

Take How I Live [from “Con Air”] — [the LeAnn Rimes recording] is the #1 song on Billboard by a female artist.

November is still a while away, but where will you put your golden man, Oscar?

I bring him to bed with me. I was only joking. I love it when people don’t take it seriously and say they will use it as a bathroom doorstop. I say, “No, you didn’t. It sits where you can look at it every damn day.”

This will stay at my house. I will put it on my piano and look at it every day. I’m really proud of it and I don’t take it for granted at all. I’m so damn proud and happy. I’m so excited to have received this. The Governors Award is a pretty deep respect.
