Chris Cornell’s ‘You Know My Name,’ the title song for Casino Royale is listed in the early nominations list for the ‘Original Song’ category for the 79th Academy Awards.
Included with 55 other songs, the list will be trimmed down to the final three/four/five on 16 January 2007 when members of the Music Branch in both Beverly Hills and New York City will vote for their choices after hearing random clips of each song. The nominations will be announced on 23 January at 5:30am PST in the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater.
As Coming Soon reports, ‘a song must consist of words and music, both of which are original and written specifically for the film in order to be eligible. A clearly audible, intelligible, substantive rendition of both lyric and melody must be used in the body of the film or as the first music cue in the end credits.’
