Madonna Wins Golden Globe for “Masterpiece”

Filed under: Film and Entertainment,Popular Music — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 02:00


Last Sunday, the 2012 Golden Globes were held in Hollywood, California. Voted by members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the Golden Globes are often thought of as the precursor to the Academy Awards, although recent history has shown that is largely not the case. This year, Madonna won the Golden Globe in the category of Best Original Song from a Motion Picture for her song “Masterpiece” from her upcoming directorial debut W.E., which releases from Weinstein Pictures in February. Madonna shared in the glory with fellow co-writers of “Masterpiece” Julie Frost and Jimmy Harry. Unfortunately, the song will not be eligible for the Academy Award because of a technicality; it is the second song played at the end credits and Academy rules stipulate it must be either within the body of the film or the first to appear during the credits to be considered. Nonetheless, she certainly deserves the accolades for this win! This marks the second Golden Globe win for Madonna (her first came in 1997 for Best Actress for her portrayal of Eva Peron in EVITA). Take a listen to “Masterpiece” below:
