The Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O earned a Golden Globe nomination for best original score – motion picture for her work with composer Carter Burwell on the soundtrack for Where the Wild Things Are. Karen will compete against the scores for Up, The Informant, Avatar and A Single Man.
U2 and Paul McCartney received nominations for best original song– motion picture. U2’s “Winter” is featured in Brothers, the Iraq war drama starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Tobey Maguire and Natalie Portman, while McCartney’s “I Want to Come Home” topped the soundtrack for the Drew Barrymore and Robert DeNiro film Everybody’s Fine. Both songs will square off against Avatar’s “I Will See You,” “Cinema Italiono” from the musical Nine and “The Weary Kind” from Crazy Heart.
Nine enjoyed the second-most nomination nods overall with five, including best musical or comedy.
Glee, the latest and greatest television series of the season in this blogger’s opinion, rightfully picked up four nomination nods, including best television series – comedy or musical. As it so happens, Glee is both.
The 67th annual awards ceremony will be held Jan. 17 on NBC.
