Pop Stars Dazzle at 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards

The 77th Golden Globe Awards was a star-studded evening, honoring some of Hollywood’s finest. Actors like Joaquin Phoenix, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Brad Pitt, Laura Dern and Awkwafina all took home some of the night’s biggest awards. While it revered itself as a night for acting, some attendees encompassed a handful of music’s hottest stars.

One of the most important awards for any artist in attendance was Best Original Song. Elton John and Bernie Taupin took home the highest honor for his track “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again” from his biopic Rocketman. It kick-started a big night for the film with Taron Egerton scoring Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy.

Fellow nominees Beyoncé and Taylor Swift also dazzled in the audience. They represented their own films — Swift for her song “Beautiful Ghosts” from Cats and Beyoncé for “Spirit” from The Lion King.

Jennifer Lopez was also present, but for her impressive acting chops. She basked in the success of her own Golden Globe nom for her supporting role in Hustlers. The artist also had a hand in producing the hit film, further proving her creative talent.

While we pay tribute to the pop stars contributing to the year’s highly-acclaimed films, the composers creating the movie scores take the cake. Among others, Hildur Guðnadóttir won Best Original Score for her work on Joker. Her hauntingly emotional composition helped shape the film’s dark, disturbing nature.

Overall, it was a night of highs and lows, jam-packed with plenty of surprise wins.
