New Jon Bon Jovi Song in the Running for Oscar Nomination

12/13/2012 Bon Jovi has received many accolades over the years, but one award the New Jersey rocker's never won is an Oscar.  That could change in 2013, though, as "Not Running Anymore," a track the Bon Jovi frontman wrote and recorded for the upcoming film Stand Up Guys, is one of 75 tunes picked by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to be eligible for a nomination in the original song category.

The singer has been nominated once before for a best original song Academy Award, back in 1991 for his solo tune "Blaze of Glory" from the film Young Guns II.

Visit to check out all of the songs in the running to score a nod.  The five tunes that receive the most votes from voting members of the Academy's Music Branch will receive nominations.  The Oscar nominees will be announced January 10.
