Lana Del Rey, Lorde, Trent Reznor, Patti Smith Nominated For Golden Globes
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the nominations for next year’s Golden Globe awards this morning, and the nominees, especially in the musical categories, include a few people who are very familiar in this particular corner of the internet. In the Best Original Song category, three of our best, weirdest female pop stars are up against one of the women who helped to define the weird-female-pop-star role. Lana Del Rey snagged a nomination for the title song from the Tim Burton film Big Eyes, and she’s up against Lorde’s The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 single “Yellow Flicker Beat” and “Opportunity,” Sia’s new song from the Annie remake. Those three songs are up against “Mercy Is,” Patti Smith’s Kronos Quartet collab from the Noah soundtrack. “Glory,” John Legend and Common’s song from the Martin Luther King biopic Selma rounds out the category.
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, past winners for The Social Network, are once again nominated for Best Original Score, this time for their work on David Fincher’s Gone Girl. This time around, they have an intriguing competitor: The Icelandic minimalist composer Jóhann Jóhannsson, nominated for his score for the Stephen Hawking biopic The Theory Of Everything. They’re up against the more traditional film composers Alexandre Desplat (The Imitation Game) and Hans Zimmer (Interstellar), as well as the jazz drummer Antonio Sanchez, whose propulsive Birdman score has to be considered a frontrunner.
