Adele's 'Skyfall' track nominated for Golden Globes Award

Skyfall - 15-12-12
The title theme of the new James Bond film "Skyfall", performed by Adele, has been nominated for Best Original Song at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards.

Its success in landing a nomination follows news that it landed a Best Original Song nomination at the Academy Awards, despite the overly strict rules on what constitutes and 'original song'. There were some fears that as the music uses riffs of the 50 year-old James Bond theme, it would not be eligible.

BEST ORIGINAL SONG – MOTION PICTURE
a. “FOR YOU” — ACT OF VALOR
Music by: Monty Powell, Keith Urban
Lyrics by: Monty Powell, Keith Urban
b. “NOT RUNNING ANYMORE”—STAND UP GUYS
Music by: Jon Bon Jovi
Lyrics by: Jon Bon Jovi
c. “SAFE & SOUND” — THE HUNGER GAMES
Music by: Taylor Swift, John Paul White, Joy Williams, T Bone Burnett
Lyrics by: Taylor Swift, John Paul White, Joy Williams, T Bone Burnett
d. “SKYFALL”—SKYFALL
Music by: Adele, Paul Epworth
Lyrics by: Adele, Paul Epworth
e. “SUDDENLY” — LES MISERABLES
Music by: Claude-Michel Schonberg
Lyrics by: Herbert Kretzmer, Alain Boublil

The Golden Globes are ran by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which in recent years has been ridiculed for its fawning to A-listers to have them attend the ceremony, and accusations of bribery and back-handers.

The results will be broadcast live on NBC on Sunday 13th January 2013.
