December 21, 2000 12:00 AM ET

Bjork scored an impressive pair of nominations for the 2001 Golden Globe Awards, which were announced Thursday morning. The Icelandic singer (and now actress) continued her run of acclaim for her performance in director Lars von Trier's film, Dancer in the Dark, with a nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Drama.

Bjork also received a nod for Best Original Song for her performance of "I've Seen It All," which she co-wrote with von Trier and Sjon Sigurdsson. The other nominees in the category are "My Funny Friend and Me," by Sting and David Hartley (from The Emperor's New Groove), "Things Have Changed," by Bob Dylan (The Wonderboys), "When You Come Back to Me Again," by Garth Brooks and Jenny Yates (Frequency), and "One in a Million," by Steffan Olsson and performed by Bosson (Miss Congeniality).

Director Cameron Crowe semi-autobiographical rock & roll tale, Almost Famous, also fared well, scoring four nominations. Almost Famous picked up a nod for Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, where it will go head-to-head with Christopher Guest's satire Best in Show, the claymation comedy Chicken Run, Lasse Hallstrom's French comedy, Chocolat and the Coen Brothers' O' Brother Where Are Thou?.

Crowe also received a nomination for Best Screenplay for a Motion Picture, a category that doesn't distinguish between drama and comedy. Kate Hudson and Francis McDormand were both nominated for their roles in Almost Famous in the Best Supporting Actress in a Musical or Comedy category.

The fifty-eighth annual Golden Globes Awards ceremony will take place on Jan. 21 at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles. NBC will broadcast the proceedings live.

“Vicious”

Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
