Watch|Listen: Two-time Oscar Nominee Keira Knightley singing the Oscar Nominated song 'Lost Stars' from 'Begin Again' OST

I know I have previously posted about Begin Again theme song, Lost Stars here (about 7 months ago, June 2014), but I thought it's worth revisiting and posting here again because who knew 7 months later this song would be nominated for both the Critics Choice Movie Awards and the Oscars, right? I knew it was submitted and in short list contention for an Oscar nomination for Best Original Song, but one never knows if it'll make it or not. It didn't get a nod on the recent Golden Globe Awards. Fortunately, when the Oscar Nominations was announced last Thursday, I was hoping, though didn't expect it to get nominated, but it did. So glad it was nominated because I love the song (I have it on repeat on my iPod playlist since I downloaded the track a few months ago) and Keira Knightley (who is nominated for Best Supporting Actress for The Imitation Game, with the film scoring 8 Oscar nominations, sounded great with this song and) did very good singing it (loved her version more than her co-star Adam Levine's version, but he might be singing it on the Oscars though...) and the song's very catchy too. Not too mention, that's the only song I've heard from the other Oscar nominees for the Best Original Song category.

Keira sings 6 (out 16) tracks from Begin Again Soundtrack, which was released last July 1st, 2014"Begin AgainSoundtrack - apple.com‎order the "Begin Again" film soundtrack on iTunes! (You can sample a few tracks Keira sings including Lost Stars). KK's songs are really good. Love the other songs she sang too. See a list of songs she sang on the soundtrack below:
