A couple of days after bagging a Golden Globe nomination, A R Rahman is once again in Oscar race with his song 'If I Rise' from 127 Hours. The number has made it to the Academy shortlist for the Original Song category.

A total of 41 tunes, including the number that Rahman wrote for Danny Boyle's film, will be judged for Oscar considerations by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences.

Clips featuring the songs will be viewed by the members of the music branch, who will vote to determine the final nominees on 6 January, Academy's official website said unveiling the list on Thursday.

The nominations for the 83rd Academy Awards will be unveiled January 25 while the award ceremony will take place on 27 February at the Kodak Theater in Hollywood.
