Billie Eilish and Finneas have earned their second Oscar nomination for their track “What Was I Made For?” and Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt have been nominated for “I’m Just Ken,” but there are a few musicians and actors who are noticeably missing from this year’s nominations. Jennifer Lopez has been nominated for a Razzie for her role in ‘The Mother.’ Rihanna had the ultimate fangirl moment when she met Natalie Portman for the first time. Common and Jennifer Hudson seemingly confirm their relationship on ‘The Jennifer Hudson Show.’ On a recent episode of ‘The Breakfast Club,’ Charlamagne Tha God and DJ Envy cleared the air after DJ Envy called SZA “this generation’s Mary (J. Blige).” And more!
The Oscar nominations are here, J.Lo flops, J-Hud got a man, and Rihanna fangirls. We hang out with Flavor Flav. They compare Mary J. Blige to who? And we learn about Ivan Cornejo.
It’s Tetris, it’s Tuesday and it’s January 23rd. Welcome to Billboard News. Now it is spicy in these music streets, but before we get into the tea of the day, let’s jump over to the movie biz for the Oscar noms.

But she’ll have to beat out Jon Batiste and Dan Wilson; Scott George; Diane Warren, who received her 15th nomination but has yet to win; and fellow ‘Barbie’ soundtrack writers Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt. Noticeably missing from the category: Dua Lipa’s “Dance the Night.”
