Golden Globe Musings: Music Categories

Golden Globe Musings: Best Original Score / Best Original Song

The following represents some preliminary thoughts on Golden Globe contenders for the given category. Predictions will be narrowed and revised towards the end of November or the beginning of December. A reminder that the Globes are wildly unpredictable and that it is way to early to gauge the reception or awards potential of a number of the so-called “contenders” at this point. Rules of eligibility in this category are often weird and not as stringent as at the Oscars.

I honestly have no idea what films will have frontrunners for the music categories. As a result, I will offer preliminary and uneducated predictions for the nominees and make revised predictions in late November as buzz picks up. As far as the songs go, I have heard and love all of the songs from “Once” and cannot remember those from “Hairspray” or “Into the Wild”. I am pretty certain that the film distribution will end up like that on the final list (1 “Enchanted”, 1 “Hairspray”, 1 “Into the Wild”, and 2 “Once”), but with the exception of “Falling Slowly” from “Once”, I could not tell you what they will be, but I will give it a shot. Here is hoping for the inclusion of “Pop Goes My Heart” from “Music & Lyrics”.

The Golden Compass
The Kite Runner
There Will Be Blood

Enchanted, “That’s How You Know”
Hairspray, “Come So Far”
Into the Wild, “Guaranteed”
Once, “Falling Slowly”
Once, “If You Want Me”
