MADONNA WINS GOLDEN GLOBE FOR MASTERPIECE
Masterpiece from the original motion picture soundtrack W.E.
Masterpiece, a ballad co-written and sung by Madonna for her new film “W.E.,” earned the best original song Golden Globe at the glitz-filled awards gala on Sunday. It was the second Globe for the director-singer, who won for best actress in a comedy or musical in 1997 for “Evita.”
With her slight British inflection, Madonna made sure to thank her longtime manager, Guy Oseary, “for being so irritating.” And studio boss Harvey Weinstein, whom she called “the punisher… for believing in my film. Thank you for my film.”
Later, when introducing the best foreign language film, she had a poke at host Ricky Gervais (who joked she remains “just like a virgin”).
“If I’m still just like a virgin, Ricky. Then why don’t you come over here and do something about it,” she said with a smile. “I haven’t kissed a girl in a few years. On TV.”
Madonna’s “Masterpiece” is a moody ballad featuring a simplified production reminiscent of her sound in the 1990s, while the lyrics lean on the emotional side and tie into the film’s love story. It was co-written by James Harry.
