The Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture. Critics' opinion vs popular choice.

I don't watch many awards shows. I only watch those with Taylor Swift on (you know, I'm a big fan of her); most of the times music shows. This is the first time I've seen a film awards show live. Well there must be something there for me isn't it? Taylor is again nominated for Best Original Song. Given she's only an occasional actress, being nominated for a Golden Globe for a song/score category is a big deal and I'm quite interested.

The nominees for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture are:
Atlas, from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire;
Let It Go, from Frozen;
Ordinary Love, from Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom;
Please Mr. Kennedy, from Inside Llewyn Davis;
Sweeter Than Fiction, from One Chance.

And the winner is, Ordinary Love, from Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

Quite deserving, I guessed. After all just looking at the nominees, not just the songs but the artists behind them and the films they represent, I figured it would be difficult for Taylor to walk away…
