Indiewire’s Awards Editor Peter Knegt and TV Critic Ben Travers will
provide regular updates on the Golden Globe races leading up to the
ceremony on January 11, 2015.
The history of the Best Original Song category at the Golden Globes is ripe is full of winners who didn’t go on to win — or in some cases even be nominated for — Oscar. See Madonna’s win in 2011 for her “W.E.” song “Masterpiece,” or “You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me” winning the year before for “Burlesque.” So whatever wins, don’t necessarily expect the same song to even be called a few days later when the Oscar nominations come out.

“Glory” (John Legend and Common) – Selma
