U2 has received their second Oscar nomination, earning a nod in the category for Best Original Song for "Ordinary Love," the song they wrote for the movie Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom .  The song won a Golden Globe last weekend.

U2 was previously nominated for an Oscar for "The Hands that Built America" in 2003, but lost to Eminem's "Lose Yourself."

While the Golden Globes gave Best Original Song nominations to big stars like Justin Timberlake , Taylor Swift and Coldplay , the Academy Awards didn't recognize those songs at all. 

Here's the full list of nominees:

"Ordinary Love" from Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom , U2
"Happy," from Despicable Me 2 , Pharrell Williams
"Let It Go" from Frozen , Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez
"The Moon Song," from Her, Karen O. and Spike Jonze
"Alone Yet Not Alone" from Alone Yet Not Alone , Bruce Broughton and Dennis Spiegel
