U2, Eminem, Madonna, Paul Simon and Bryan Adams will compete for Best Original Song honors at the 2003 Golden Globe Awards. Peter Gabriel earned a nod in the Best Original Score category.

U2 wrote their "The Hands that Built America" for Martin Scorsese's historical epic Gangs of New York, which received five total nominations. Eminem's "Lose Yourself" comes from his Curtis Hansen-directed quasi-biopic 8 Mile; Madonna's "Die Another Day" was the theme song to the James Bond picture of the same name; Paul Simon penned "Father and Daughter" for the big-screen version of Nickelodeon's animated series "The Wild Thornberrys"; and Bryan Adams set his lyrics to "Here I Am," from Spirit: Stallion of the Cimmarron, to music by Hans Zimmer.

Gabriel's nomination comes for his work on the Australian film Rabbit Proof Fence. He previously earned a nomination in 1988 for his score to Scorsese's The Last Temptation of Christ.

The 2003 Golden Globe Awards are scheduled for January 19th at the Beverly Hills Hilton, and will air on NBC.
