Billie Eilish and Finneas Win Best Original Song at 2022 Golden Globes

    Billie Eilish and Finneas’ James Bond theme song ‘No Time to Die’ won Best Original Song, Motion Picture at the 2022 Golden Globe Awards. They beat out songs by Beyoncé (‘Be Alive’ from King Richard), Lin-Manuel Miranda (‘Dos Oruguitas’ from Encanto), Van Morrison (‘Down to Joy’ from Belfast), and Carole King and Jennifer Hudson (‘Here I Am’ from Respect).

    Hans Zimmer won Best Original Score for his work on Dune, which was nominated alongside Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood (Power of the Dog), Alexandre Desplat (The French Dispatch), Germaine Franco (Encanto), and Alberto Iglesias (Parallel Mothers). Alana Haim was nominated for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy, but lost to West Side Story star Rachel Zegler. Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story remake also won Best Motion Picture: Musical or Comedy over Licorice Pizza.

    This year’s Golden Globes were a non-televised event, and awards were announced publicly through Twitter and on the official Globes website. NBC declined to air the show this year following allegations of ethical and financial lapses and a lack of diversity, first detailed in a Los Angeles Times exposé last year. The HFPA has since made attempts to diversify its membership by adding Black members and hiring its first chief diversity officer.
