In the most shocking news like ever a Bravolebrity has been nominated for an Academy Award. Asa Soltan Rahmati co-wrote a song with friend Sunny Levine for the Rashida Jones movie Celeste & Jesse Forever. The song, No Other Plans, has landed on the 2012 Oscars short list! The movie premiered to big reviews at Sundance and things spiraled from there.
75 total songs make the list which is whittled down to the five contenders for the Best Original Song category. "I couldn't even believe it. I was like screaming, I just couldn't believe it," the Shahs of Sunset star told Bravo's The Dish.
Asa feels the nomination helps validate and solidify her career. "It's such a blessing and I'm so humbled," she shares. "People saw me last week and my mom was like 'What the hell is this, Persian pop priestess. Go get a PhD.' I've been working really hard for years at doing what I do and it's incredible that some things are coming to fruition. Whether we get nominated or not, this is incredible to me."

She and co-writer Sunny (aka Bunny) "grew up together" and have been writing music together for years. He is the co-writer on all Asa's original songs. "It's great to see something indie like this on the list," Asa adds.
As for what she'll do with an Oscar if she wins, it will be prominently featured in her studio. "My Oscar is going to go directly in my art studio. And you know it's gold, and you know my thing with gold. I might try to make a necklace out of it for a while."
