Besides thanking Barbie director and co-screenwriter Gerwig, Eilish thanked her best friend Zoe Donahue for “playing Barbies with me growing up,” as well as her choir teachers Miss Brigham and Miss T. “You didn’t like me but you were good at your job,” the singer said about the latter.

“What Was I Made For?” competed against other Barbie nominee “I’m Just Ken,” as well as “The Fire Inside” by Becky G from Flamin’ Hot; “It Never Went Away” by Jon Batiste and Dan Wilson from American Symphony; and “Wahzhazhe (A Song For My People)” by Scott George and the Osage singers from Killers of the Flower Moon.
