Following a haunting performance of “No Time To Die,” Billie Eilish and her brother FINNEAS won their first-ever Oscar, taking home the award for Best Original Song at the 94th Academy Awards.

After being announced as the winner of the award, Eilish and FINNEAS took to the stage to humbly accept the Oscar.

“This is so unbelievable, I could scream,” Eilish said before thanking her team.

“We want to thank our parents, who have always been our greatest inspirations,” FINNEAS added. “We love you as our parents and we love you as real people too. Thank you so much to the Academy, we promise not to lose these.”

 

“King Richard”‘s “Be Alive,” “Encanto”‘s “Dos Oruguitas,” “Belfast”‘s “Down to Joy” and “Four Good Days”‘ “Somehow You Do” were also nominated in the Best Original Song category.

Co-written by Eilish and FINNEAS, “No Time To Die” is the theme song for the James Bond film of the same time. Released through Interscope Records in February 2020, the track features orchestration by Hans Zimmer and was produced by FINNEAS and Stephen Lipson.

Upon release, Eilish, who was 17-years-old at the time, became the youngest artist to have written and recorded a Bond theme in the history of the franchise.

Co-hosted by Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes, the 94th Academy Awards aired on Sunday, March 27 at 8/7c on ABC.
