It's official. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has confirmed that Beyonce will not be eligible for a nomination in the best original song category for "Listen". Beyonce is one four writers credited for penning the song that is a turning point for Knowles' character in the film Dreamgirls.

Academy rules states that only three writers can receive a trophy on Oscar night and the three who are included must contribute a large "percentage" into the song. Beyonce has said in the past that she would like to win a Golden Globe, Oscar, Emmy, and Tony during her career. All of which I think she may acquire at some point but not right now, it's simply just not her time.

I have to say I am a little disappointed that she's ineligible for the Oscar nomination. Listen is a great song and if she was instrumental in writing such a powerful song I believe she should be honored for her achievement, and this is coming from someone who definitely has a love/hate relationship with Ms. Sasha.

Meanwhile her co-star Jennifer Hudson continues to steal Beyonce's thunder while racking up on award nominations. Ms. Hudson currently has a Golden Globe nomination for her role as Effie White and it was just announced on yesterday that she has secured a Screen Actor's Guild nomination.
Not to forget the huge Oscar buzz surrounding her powerhouse performance in Dreamgirls.

Read what critics are saying about Jennifer below.
