The Golden Globes Want To Hear Clint Eastwood Sing

This morning brought the nominations for the 66th Annual Golden Globes, and the nominees for Best Original Song do collect a “who are some people who have never been in my kitchen”-worthy group—songs performed by Beyonce, Peter Gabriel, Bruce Springsteen, Miley Cyrus, and Clint Eastwood are up for the award, which will be given out next month. After the jump, the five nominated songs, just in case you haven’t gotten around to hearing Springsteen’s title track for The Wrestler or the Cyrus’ increasingly Bea Arthur-ish timbre growling through a song from Bolt.

Beyonce, “Once In A Lifetime” (Cadillac Records) Music and lyrics by Beyoncé Knowles, Amanda Ghost, Scott McFarnon, Ian Dench, James Dring, and Jody Street

Clint Eastwood and Jamie Cullum, “Grand Torino” (Grand Torino) Music by Clint Eastwood, Jamie Cullum, Kyle Eastwood, and Michael Stevens / lyrics by Kyle Eastwood and Michael Stevens

Peter Gabriel, “Down To Earth” (Wall-E) Music by Peter Gabriel, Thomas Newman / lyrics by Peter Gabriel

Miley Cyrus, “I Thought I Lost You” (Bolt) Music and Lyrics by Miley Cyrus and Jeffrey Steele

Bruce Springsteen, “The Wrestler” (The Wrestler/em>) Music and Lyrics by Bruce Springsteen

I’d say there’s no way Springsteen or Beyonce don’t win this, but I guess Eastwood is a bit of a dark horse, no? Even with the Rowlf thing that he has going on.
