Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas O’Connell won the Oscar for best original song for their Barbie soundtrack hit “What Was I Made For?”

Barbie, last year’s highest-grossing film, was nominated in eight categories, but had to contend with just one award.

“I had a nightmare about this last night,” Eilish said after accepting the award. “Thank you so much to the Academy. I just didn’t think this would happen, I was not expecting this. I feel so incredibly lucky and honored.”

She thanked Barbie director Greta Gerwig for giving her the opportunity to contribute to the film.

The pair performed live at the Academy Awards stage in Los Angeles Sunday night.

The sibling duo was among some of the stars who arrived on the red carpet wearing red Artists4Ceasefire pins.

This marks their second Oscar award. The first was for the James Bond film track, “No Time to Die.”
