An award in the Best Music category may not be the only Oscar the film takes home, as it is still eligible to compete in the Best Animated Feature category. The shortlist for this category has yet to be announced.

Whether it brings home an Academy Award, The Boy and the Heron has already made history with prestigious recognition. Less than a month ago, it received nominations for the Golden Globe Awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Score.
