Lana Del Rey: Singer, Songwriter, 'Big Eyes' Golden Globe Nominee, Oscar Winner?
Harvey Weinstein and Oscar contender Amy Adams turned out along with the song’s co-writer Daniel Heath. “Big Eyes” will be competing for best original song at the Golden Globes on Sunday, and has an excellent shot at an Oscar nom on Thursday.
Del Rey told me that it wasn’t hard coming up with inspiration for a summary song for a Tim Burton movie about Margaret Keane (Adams) reclaiming her art, and that it was an extra thrill having her song played during the surreal supermarket scene in which Keane imagines everyone with “big eyes.” Del Rey’s more upbeat, inspirational song,”I Can Fly, appears over the end credits.
“I’ve always been attracted to women’s rights stories, and I’ve become a big fan of Margaret’s art, but her more recent paintings of animals are my favorite,” Del Rey added.
Meanwhile, Adams said it was great participating with Keane at an awards screening Q&A Tuesday night to hear her redemptive story first-hand and how emotional it was to watch it unfold onscreen.
Adams is next eyeing ’60s rock icon Janis Joplin for the biopic, “Get It While You Can,” to be directed by Jean-Marc Vallee (“Wild,” “Dallas Buyers Club”).”We’re having fun discussing it,” she teased.
