Gloden Globe Nominations Announced

The Wrestler

Bruce Springsteen‘s “The Wrestler” (from the movie of the same name) was among five songs I haven’t heard to be nominated for best Original Song at the 2008 Golden Globes. Interestingly, Hans Zimmer’s original score for the Dark Knight was not nominated for a Golden Globe, though it was recently made eligible to be nominated for an Academy award. (He shouldn’t feel to bad though, Zimmer was nominated for his work on Frost/Nixon.)
