Nominations for the 70th Annual Golden Globes were announced this morning, and this year’s nominees for Best Original Song include two former You Oughta Know artists — The Civil Wars and Adele — as well as Taylor Swift, who will likely to be loaded down with awards after the year she’s had. All of the nominees are as follows:
“For You,” by Keith Urban for Act of Valor
“Not Running Anymore,” by Jon Bon Jovi for Stand Up Guys
“Safe and Sound,” by Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars for The Hunger Games
“Skyfall,” by Adele for Skyfall
“Suddenly,” by Hugh Jackman for Les Miserables
We’ve already expressed our love for Swift and the War’s stormy and unexpected collaboration “Safe and Sound,” as well as for Adele’s towering “Skyfall,” and we just listened to Keith Urban’s Act of Valor contribution for the first time and can assure that it is also quite the scorcher. This is, by our best judgments, a pretty solid list. But what about all those other songs we heard in movies this year? Fiona Apple‘s “Dull Tool” from This Is 40, The Black Keys‘ “Baddest Man Alive” from The Man With the Iron Fists, Rick Ross‘ “100 Black Coffins” from Django Unchained and Katy Perry‘s “Wide Awake” from her biopic Part of Me all got the Golden Globe snub. Each has made the Oscar’s Best Original Song longlist, however, so there’s still reason to believe we may get at least one big and bawse-y Rick Ross podium grunt before this awards season’s out. RUH!
