Spanning eras and genres, her music is the soundtrack to our lives. She's won over the charts. She's written her way into our hearts — and history — time and time again. And unsurprisingly, people search for her (her lyrics, her albums, her tour dates, and more) with the same staggering frequency with which she sets records. Here's to the Most Searched Songwriter of all-time, Taylor Swift.Not only is Taylor Swift Time's 2023 Person of the Year, she's the most searched. That alone makes this a proper Sunday entertainment feature. Just to cement that status, I'm returning to the promise I made in Trevor Noah, Wanda Sykes, and Chris Rock, comedians nominated at the Golden Globes, Grammys, and Emmys, to get to Cinematic and Box Office Achievement in a future post. Swift's concert film earned a nomination in that category, so here are the nominees.
Cinematic and Box Office AchievementCongratulations to Swift and her fans for catapulting her concert film into the top ten at the 2023 box office and into this category! It's also the only nominee I didn't cover in my Saturn Awards series. As Infidel753 remarked in Link round-up for 24 December 2023 today, "Here are the Saturn Awards nominees for 2023. This time I've actually heard of some of them." That's because the top eight grossing films of 2023 are all Saturn Awards nominees. Everyone has heard of them. Revenge of the nerds!*

Swift may be in for more honors, as two of the ten Gold Derby editors think Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour will win this category; the rest picked Barbie. Normally, I'd say this new category is a lock for Barbie, but the two editors choosing Swift's film are Joyce Eng and Christopher Rosen, my two favorite Gold Derby experts, so I'm taking the possibility seriously.
