And Flaming Lips, Rufus Wainwright and Vedder tipped for Oscar glory
Eddie Vedder and Shakira have been nominated for Golden Globes, to take place January 13 in Los Angeles.
Vedder received two nods, one for Best Original Score for his contribution to the Sean Penn-directed ‘Into The Wild’, which he wrote with Michael Brook and Kaki King, as well as a Best Original Song for ‘Guaranteed’ which also featured in the movie.
Shakira will compete with Vedder for Best Original Song for ‘Despedia’ which featured in the movie ‘Love In The Time Of Cholera’. She co-wrote the track with Antonio Pinto.
Meanwhile, Vedder’s ‘Into The Wild’ contributions are part of a 59-song shortlist eligible to be nominated for Best Original Song at the 2008 Academy Awards. The Pearl Jam frontman joins Sondre Lerche on the shortlist who, like Vedder, has three-songs eligible to be nominated. Lerche recorded songs for the ‘Dan In Real Life’ soundtrack.
Other artists who could receive nominations are the Flaming Lips for ‘I Was Zapped By The Super Lucky Rainbow’ from ‘Good Luck Chuck’ and Rufus Wainwright’s ‘Another Believer’ from the movie ‘Meet The Robinsons’.
