Katy Perry Hopes To Win Oscar This Year

When it comes to this year's Oscars, Katy Perry is hoping for the best.

Perry has said that she would love to win an Oscar this year, and has a good shot at it, as her song "Wide Awake" is eligible for a nomination for best original song. She wrote it for her film Katy Perry: Part of Me. Perry has already been nominated for nine Grammy awards.

"It's like a dream's dream," she told USA Today. "When I was growing up and working on music, it was always a dream to win a Grammy, but Oscar was so far out of my dream sphere. This would be a nomination of a completely different caliber. One that is more impressive than many other ones I've had. It's interesting to step out of your playing field and to be recognized from a different angle. It would be an honor."

The Academy will announce the nominations on January 10, which include the five choices for best song.
