TAYLOR, ELTON UP FOR GOLDEN GLOBES

Taylor Swift, Elton John and Beyonce received Golden Globe nominations this morning for their songs in films from the last year. What might this portend come Oscar time?

The field for Best Original Song—Motion Picture contains three superstars, a Disney franchise and a song co-written by an actress who is just an Oscar shy of an EGOT.

Swift is up for “Beautiful Ghosts” from Cats, a song she co-wrote with the show’s creator Andrew Lloyd Webber. Elton and Bernie Taupin are nominated for their new contribution to the biopic Rocketman, “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again.”

Frozen II, with music by Bobby Lopez, who is already an EGOT, and Kristen Anderson Lopez, gets into the action with “Into the Unknown,” which Idina Menzel sings in the film and Panic! At the Disco performs over the end credits.

Beyonce’s “Spirit,” written and produced by the singer with Ilya Salmanzadeh and Labrinth for The Lion King, is also contending along with “Stand Up” from Harriet by Grammy, Tony and Emmy winner Cynthia Erivo.

In four of the last five ceremonies, the winner of the Globe has gone on to win the Oscar, the most recent being Lady Gaga and Mark Ronson for “Shallow” from A Star is Born.

The 77th Golden Globe Awards will be handed out on 1/5.
