The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) have announced the winners of the 78th Golden Globe Awards, honoring the best in film and American television of 2020.

In the Best Original Score category composers Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross, and Jon Batiste won the award for their work on the Pixar animated movie Soul, about a jazz musician who travels to an existential realm beyond the bounds of human existence, and must help a pre-born ‘soul’ to find the spark to inspire her to become human. This is the second Golden Globe for both Reznor and Ross, them having won the award for The Social Network in 2010, and the first award for Batiste. In his acceptance speech, which was conducted remotely via Zoom because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Batiste said:

“We must follow our dreams, because we only have one life to live, and one soul, and this soul is happy today to be recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press for this masterpiece of a film. Pixar, thank you for the work, and the collaboration. Pete Docter, Dana Murray, Kent Powers, Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross, Jamie Foxx, everybody involved in creating this masterpiece that has touched people across the world, and I’d like to thank God for music and film and the togetherness that it brings when put together in such innovative and collaborative ways as this has been.”

Reznor continued by saying:

“Thanks John, and thank you Hollywood Foreign Press Association, it really means a lot. I’d just like to add Tom McDougall’s name to that list. Thanks for looking after us and shepherding us through this project. And also I think the first piece of art I’ve ever made in my life that I can actually show my kids, so thank you Pixar! Huge thanks to my wife Mariqueen, and all our kids, I love you guys more than anything.

Ross finished by saying:

“A big thank you to everyone who has already been thanked. I’d just like to add my wife Claudia, and my children, I love you. Thanks so much”

The other nominees were Alexandre Desplat for The Midnight Sky, Ludwig Göransson for Tenet, James Newton Howard for News of the World, and Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross again for Mank.

In the Best Original Song category, the winners were Niccolò Agliardi, Laura Pausini, and Diane Warren for their song “Io Sì (Seen)” from The Life Ahead, the Italian coming-of-age drama starring Sophia Loren.

The other nominees were Sam Ashworth and Leslie Odom Jr. for “Speak Now” from One Night in Miami; Andra Day and Raphael Saadiq for “Tigress & Tweed” from The United States vs. Billie Holiday; Dernst ‘D’Mile’ Emile II, Gabriella Wilson (HER), and Tiara Thomas for “Fight for You” from Judas and the Black Messiah; and Celeste Waite and Daniel Pemberton for “Hear My Voice” from The Trial of the Chicago 7.
