M.I.A. may have ruled last year’s award show season, but it’s looking like Karen O will be our favorite artist to rock the red carpet this year. The Hollywood Foreign Press announced this year’s Golden Globe nominees this morning and the list not only confirms that Karen O is having a great week, but that the Oscar buzz we placed on U2 and T Bone Burnett was not unfounded.
Karen O and Carter Burwell are by far the most interesting nominees for Best Original Score (Where the Wild Things Are). Ryan Bingham and T Bone Burnett’s theme song to Crazy Heart, “The Weary Kind,” earned a nomination for Best Original Song, alongside U2’s “Winter” (from Brothers), Paul McCartney’s “I Want to Come Home” (Everybody’s Fine), as well as inevitable Avatar/Nine nominations.
Can’t wait until the fashion watchers see what Christian Joy cooks up for Karen O’s red carpet garb. Check out the full list of Golden Globe nominations here.
