Madonna wins Golden Globe

The Golden Globes took place in Los Angeles last night, with that Ricky Gervais helping to hand out the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s annual awards for the third year in a row. Gervais used to have a show on Xfm, which possibly makes him an honorary music person. Assuming we actually want him to be one of us, which maybe we don’t. Anyway, some people we’re stuck with, whether we like it or not, were up for awards, so let’s talk about them instead.

Madonna won Best Original Song for ‘Masterpiece’, which features in her directorial debut ‘WE’, beating off stiff competition (or at least competition) from Elton John, Chris Cornell and Mary J Blige. She didn’t win any awards for directing though.

Over in the other music category, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross were denied their second Golden Globe win when their soundtrack for ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ lost out to Ludovic Bource’s score for ‘The Artist’.
