For the second consecutive year, Taylor Swift has earned herself a Golden Globe nomination. Maybe this will be a regular thing every December, knowing how prolifically she writes songs.

Taylor's nomination came in the Globes’ Best Original Song category, for the tune “Sweeter Than Fiction” from the film One Chance, a documentary focusing on British opera singer Paul Potts. Taylor wrote the song with Jack Antonoff, singer for the popular rock band fun.

Jack's girlfriend, Girls creator (and fellow nominee) Lena Dunham, was thrilled at the news.

Taylor will be competing against “Atlas” (from Hunger Games: Catching Fire); “Let It Go” (from Frozen); “Ordinary Love” (from Mandela: The Long Walk to Freedom); and “Please Mr. Kennedy” (from Inside Llewyn Davis).

In 2012, Taylor got her first Golden Globe nomination for “Safe & Sound,” her collaboration with The Civil Wars for The Hunger Games.

The Golden Globe Awards takes place Jan. 12 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif. See the full list of nominees here.
