Eddie Vedder wins Golden Globe

Pearl Jam frontman scores Best Original Song

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder won a Golden Globe last night for Best Original Song.

The singer won the gong for ‘Guaranteed’, a song he penned for the movie ‘Into The Wild’, directed by Sean Penn.

Vedder was nominated in the same category on 2003 for a track he wrote for the movie ‘Big Fish’, but he lost out to Annie Lennox.


This year’s Best Original Score category was won by Dario Marianelli for his contribution to the acclaimed movie ‘Atonement’.

Due to the writers’ strike, the awards were announced during a press conference as opposed to the usual glitzy ceremony.
