Golden Globes: Vedder, Blanchett, Depp Win

January 14, 2008 11:00 AM ET

Evidently, the Golden Globes "award ceremony" occurred last night in the form a half-hour press conference. We were too distracted by Rock of Love 2 to watch, but we did see the list of winners this morning and we can now report accordingly. On the music front, the Hollywood Foreign Press loves them some Pearl Jam and Bob Dylan, as Eddie Vedder's "Guaranteed" from Into the Wild won Best Original Song, filling the void on Vedder's mantle that was meant for the Critics' Choice Award he didn't win. Cate Blanchett took home Best Supporting Actress for her role as Jude Quinn, one of the many Bob Dylan alter egos in Todd Haynes' I'm Not There. In a press release/"Thank You" speech, Blanchett wrote/said "None of this would be possible without the great man himself, Bob Dylan, wherever you are, whoever you are, I thank you deeply."

Johnny Depp, star of Sweeney Todd and the current issue of Rolling Stone, followed up his win at the Peoples' Choice Awards with the Best Performance By an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy trophy, while Sweeney Todd itself won Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy. Best Score went to Dario Marianelli and Atonement, which didn't have to face off against the Critics' pick Jonny Greenwood and his There Will Be Blood score because it wasn't nominated. In one last music note, Queen Latifah won the Best Actress in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television award for the HBO film Life Support.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
