The Golden Globes Best Original Song nominees include some amazing songs written specifically for a film. These songs might play during the movie itself, or during the end credits of the film. Over the years, some of music's most prolific songwriters and lyricists have been nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song from a motion picture. Five nominees are chosen each year, and the winners are selected by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, or HFPA. The 2012 Golden Globe for Best Original Song was awarded to "Masterpiece" from the movie "W.E." (music and lyrics by Madonna, Julie Frost and Jimmy Harry).
Past winners of the Golden Globes Best Original Song include songs from Disney movies like "Beauty and the Beast" (from the movie of the same name) and "A Whole New World" (from Disney's 'Aladdin'), haunting songs from drama films like "Streets of Philadelphia" and "The Wrestler" (both songs written and performed by Bruce Springsteen) and blockbuster films like 'Titanic' (Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On") and 'Dirty Dancing' ("(I've Had) The Time of My Life," performed by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes). Past winners in this category also include timeless classics like "The Way We Were" by Barbra Streisand, "Last Dance" by Donna Summer and "The Rose" by Bette Midler ("The Rose," by the way, won the Golden Globe Best Original Song but failed to garner an Academy Award nomination in the same category).
