But Trent Reznor fails to make it two wins in two years
Madonna took the award for Best Original Song at last night’s (January 15) Golden Globes awards ceremony in Los Angeles.
The singer, who announced last week that she will release her 12th studio album ‘MDNA’ on March 12, won the award for the song ‘Masterpiece’, which is taken from the soundtrack to WE, a film she also directed.
During her acceptance speech at The Beverly Hilton hotel, Madonna thanked her manager and movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, who she called “the punisher” and also thanked him “for believing in my film”. She added: “Thank you for my film.”
The singer also presented the award for Best Foreign Language Film and enjoyed a joke at the expense of host Ricky Gervais, who had introduced her by saying she was “just like a virgin”.
Speaking before she presented the award, she said: “If I’m still just like a virgin, Ricky, then why don’t you come over here and do something about it? I haven’t kissed a girl in a few years. On TV.”
Nine Inch Nails mainman Trent Reznor failed to take home the award for Best Original Score for the second year in succession after winning last year for his soundtrack to The Social Network. This year his and Atticus Ross’ score for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo lost out to Ludovic Bource’s score for The Artist.
