The time has come to celebrate the musical geniuses behind some of our favorite songs.
Tonight, the 77th annual Golden Globes took place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. During the ceremony, “I’m Gonna Love Me Again” from Rocketman won the award for Best Original Song (Motion Picture).
The track was up against “Beautiful Ghosts” from Cats, “Into the Unknown” from Frozen 2, “Spirit” from The Lion King and “Stand Up” from Harriet.
Last year, “Shallow” by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper from A Star Is Born went home with the award for Best Original Song. The other nominees included “All the Stars” by Kendrick Lamar and SZA from Black Panther, “Girl in the Movies” by Dolly Parton from Dumplin’, “Requiem for a Private War” by Annie Lennox from A Private War and “Revelation” by Troye Sivan and Jónsi from Boy Erased.
The Golden Globe for Best Original Song has been around since 1962. The award is presented to the songwriters of a song written specifically for a motion picture. The performers of the song are not credited unless they also have a writing or co-writing credit—aka Gaga and Cooper.
Congrats to all involved! *Adds to Spotify playlist*
