U2's 'Hands' Grabs Golden Globe Nod, Along With Nominations for Madonna, Eminem

Posted on Friday, December 20 @ 14:50:58 CET by Macphisto

(Launch.com) -- U2 has received a Golden Globe nomination for best original song for 'The Hands That Built America," featured on the soundtrack to the new Martin Scorsese film Gangs Of New York, which opens in theaters on Friday (December 20).

While the track was written specifically for the film, it first appeared commercially on the band's Best Of 1990-2000 collection, released in November. The song had its first public unveiling last May 13 at New York's Tribeca Film Festival, with the band performing the number in a closed-circuit broadcast from Ireland.

"The surprise was to be able to move from 1846 to 2001 in one song," U2 singer Bono said in a statement. "Thanks to Marty's spectacular time-lapse in the ending of Gangs, we could do that and stay true to the faces of the past and the present...faces familiar to our own, the Irish in America."

Other Golden Globes nominations for best original song in a film are: Eminem's "Lose Yourself" from 8 Mile, a hit currently Number One on the Billboard Hot 100; Madonna's title theme for the James Bond film Die Another Day; Paul Simon's "Father And Daughter" from The Wild Thornberrys Movie based on the Nickelodeon TV cartoon series; and Hans Zimmer's "Here I Am," from the animated feature Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimarron, performed by Bryan Adams, who co-wrote the lyrics with songwriter Gretchen Peters.

In the original score category, Peter Gabriel is up for his work on Rabbit Proof Fence.

Gangs Of New York received five Golden Globe nominations in all--best motion picture (drama); best director for Scorsese; best performance by an actor in a motion picture (drama) for Daniel Day-Lewis; best performance by a supporting actress in a motion picture for Cameron Diaz; and best original song in a motion picture.
