75th Golden Globe Awards Winners
A closer look at the winners of this year's Golden GlobesBy Emma Francis 24-Jan-2018
The Golden Globes took place earlier this month. As well as recognising the impeccable talent in the world of film & television, it was an evening of unity and celebration for the changes happening across the entertainment industries.
Alexandre Desplat took home the award for Best Original Score for his work on Guillermo del Toro’s latest film The Shape of Water. Also nominated were Carter Burwell (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), Jonny Greenwood (Phantom Thread), John Williams (The Post) and Hans Zimmer (Dunkirk).
The Shape of Water and The Post were both nominated in the Best Motion Picture - Drama category, alongside Call Me By Your Name (supervised by Robin Urdang) which sparked a buzz for The Psychadelic Furs’ track “Love My Way” and also featured two original songs by the incredible Sufjan Stevens. Taking away this award however was the incredible Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. We spoke to Karen Elliott about her experience as music supervisor on the project which you can read here.
The Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy award went to Lady Bird so huge congratulations to Michael Hill and Brian Ross who were responsible for the music supervision. Among the nominees were I, Tonya, supervised by Sue Jacobs and Jen Moss; The Disaster Artist, with composition by Dave Porter and supervised by Gabe Hilfer; Get Out, who’s thrilling score was provided by Michael Abels and supervised by Christopher Mollere and finally The Greatest Showman, with original music by Benj Pasek, Justin Paul and Joseph Trepanese and whose soundtrack is blowing up everywhere, including a Number One album in UK.
Moving on to television, the winner of the Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television was Big Little Lies, which took the world by storm with it’s eclectic soundtrack, which was of course aided by Sue Jacobs, the very first winner of the Emmy for Music Supervision last year. Also nominated was Fargo (supervised by Marguerite Phillips); Feud: Bette and Joan (supervised by P.J. Bloom); The Sinner (compositions by Ronit Kirchman) and lastly Top of the Lake: China Girl (supervised by Jemma Burns).
To list all the talented individuals involved in the winning and nominated projects would take much too long, but we send huge congratulations to everyone who brought these projects to life with music. All the winners and nominees can be found here.
