Beyoncé & Taylor Swift To Compete For Best Original Song At Golden Globes
Nominations for the 77th Golden Globe Awards were announced this morning (December 9) and all eyes — at the least, in the music industry — were on the Best Original Song category. And there were no major snubs. As expected, Beyoncé is in the mix with “Spirit” from The Lion King remake, while Taylor Swift is recognized for Cats ballad “Beautiful Ghosts.” Other nominees include Elton John (he contributed “I’m Gonna Love Me Again” to Rocketman) and Cynthia Erivo’s soaring “Stand Up” from Harriet.
And then there’s “Into The Unknown” from Frozen 2. Who’s going to come out on top? Well, the Golden Globes is all about glitz and glamor (and prime-time TV audiences), so Beyoncé and Taylor stand a fairly good chance. However, Elton is beloved by the age demographic voting for these awards, so don’t count him out. Actually, it’s a fairly even field without a clear frontrunner. It will be interesting to see if these five songs are also recognized by the Academy Awards. Revisit each nominee below.
