The nominees for the Golden Globe Awards were announced on Thursday (Dec. 13) and Nashville’s music industry has significant ties.
ABC’s Nashville earned two nominations for its leading ladies. Connie Britton was nominated for best actress in a TV drama, while Hayden Panettiere was nominated for supporting actress in a series, miniseries or movie.
Keith Urban and songwriter Monty Powell earned a Best Original Song nod for Urban’s hit “For You,” which he performed for the film Act of Valor. “The most rewarding gift for me as a songwriter is knowing that the song has somehow made a connection,” said Urban. “I’ve been fortunate and moved to hear first hand how it has impacted others’ lives. For that, and for this nomination, I’m so very grateful and honored. To wake up to this news, as well as to Nic’s two nominations, is absolutely beautiful.” His wife Nicole Kidman was nominated for roles in The Paperboy and Hemingway & Gellhorn.
Urban has some country competition in the category, though, as songwriters Taylor Swift, John Paul White, Joy Williams, and T. Bone Burnett are also nominated for Best Original Song for “Safe and Sound.” Swift and The Civil Wars performed the track for blockbuster film The Hunger Games.
The Golden Globes will be held Sunday, Jan. 13, 2013. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will serve as co-hosts for the event.
