Carrie Underwood, Hillary Lindsey & David Hodges Garner Golden Globe Nods
Carrie Underwood scored her first Golden Globe nomination on Tuesday morning in the category of Best Original Song -- Motion Picture. 'There's a Place for Us,' which the Oklahoma native wrote with David Hodges and Hillary Lindsey, appears in 'Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.'
Songwriter Hillary Lindsey also co-wrote a second nominated song in the category, 'Coming Home,' which is sung by Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow in 'Country Strong.' Additional songs in the category are 'Bound to You' and 'You Haven't Seen the Last of Me' from 'Burlesque,' and 'I See the Light' from the animated Disney film, 'Tangled.'
Carrie says the 'Narnia' film "presents an imaginative world that's also relatable because it's easy to connect the characters and themes to our own lives. The land of Narnia represents a place where the young heroes truly belong. That inspired me to get together with David and Hillary and write 'There's a Place for Us,' which says that for everybody, there's a place where you're powerful and where you belong. The movie and song are about finding that place where you fit in."
'The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards,' hosted by Ricky Gervais, will air live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Sunday, January 16 at 8:00 PM (ET)/5:00 PM (PT) on NBC.
