Golden Globe Awards: Madonna, ‘The Artist’ Take Music Prizes

Madonna’s directorial effort W.E. lost out on the Best Original Score statue at the 69th Golden Globe Awards — that went to Ludovic Bource for The Artist — but earned a win for the Material Girl herself, for her soundtrack contribution “Masterpiece”. The song was co-written by Madonna, Jimmy Harry (Oh Land’s “Son Of A Gun”, Pink’s “Sober”) and Julie Frost (The Black Eyes Peas’ “Just Can’t Get Enough”).

Don’t look too happy for Madonna, Elton.

Madonna’s Golden Globe win capped off a week of high-profile appearances the singer/director made to promote W.E. Previously, her interview with ABC’s Cynthia McFadden was stretched across Nightline, Good Morning America and 20/20. Over in the UK, Madge’s more-lighthearted sitdown on The Graham Norton Show aired on Friday evening.

W.E. opens on February 3. Two days later, Madonna will perform for millions of Super Bowl viewers during the annual football game’s halftime.

Ahead of Madonna’s Golden Globe win this evening, she looked absolutely stunning, we must admit, on the red carpet. This marked the second time the 53-year-old entertainer has collected a Globe, following her Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy win for her featured role in 1996 movie-musical Evita.
