Springsteen, Miley, Beyonce Nominated For Golden Globes' "Best Song"

December 11, 2008 11:50 AM ET

Bruce Springsteen, Miley Cyrus, Beyoncé, Peter Gabriel and Clint Eastwood will compete in the Best Original Song category at next year's Golden Globes ceremony. Springsteen's "The Wrestler," the end-credits song for Darren Aronofsky's The Wrestler, will also feature on Bruce's upcoming album Working On a Dream. Cyrus' "I Thought I Lost You" from Bolt, Beyoncé's "Once In A Lifetime" from Cadillac Records and Peter Gabriel's Wall-E theme "Down To Earth" will also attempt to fend off actor/director Clint Eastwood and his "Gran Torino," performed with Jamie Cullum from the movie of the same name.

While strange on paper, Eastwood's nomination should come as no surprise as the Oscar-winning director and the man who portrayed "Dirty Harry" is also an accomplished musician who has scored his own films for years. And over in the Best Actor In a Drama category, Rolling Stone cover star Brad Pitt grabbed a nomination for his work in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which also locked up nods for Best Drama, Best Score and Best Screenplay.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
