    Films About Billie Eilish, Tina Turner & More Are Eligible

    Documentaries about Billie Eilish, Tina Turner, Brian Wilson, The Velvet Underground and Sparks are among 138 features that are eligible in the documentary feature category for the 94th Academy Awards.

    Summer of Soul (..or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised), which is a Grammy nominee for best music film, is also vying for an Oscar nod. The film is about a 1969 concert series in Harlem that was overshadowed by Woodstock, which was held in New York that same year.

    Eilish, who is also a Grammy nominee for best music film with Happier Than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles, is eligible for an Oscar nod with a different film, Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry. Eilish also has a good chance of landing an Oscar nod for best original song for “No Time to Die” from the James Bond film of the same name.

    Other films on the eligibility list include The Jesus Music, a doc about the rise of the contemporary Christian music genre; Fire Music, about the free jazz movement of the 1960s and ’70s; Like a Rolling Stone: The Life & Times of Ben Fong-Torres, a doc about one of that magazine’s top writers and editors from shortly after its inception in 1967 until 1981; and Rita Moreno: Just a Girl Who Decided to Go for It, about the performer who in 1977 became just the third person ever to complete the EGOT.

    Members of the documentary branch will vote to determine the shortlist and the nominees. A shortlist of 15 films will be announced on Dec. 21.

    “Documentary features that have won a qualifying film festival award or have been submitted in the international feature film category as their country’s official selection are also eligible in the category. Films submitted in the documentary feature category may also qualify for Academy Awards in other categories, including best picture.”
