Rahman at Golden Globe nominations again

A R Rahman is in the race to win his second Golden Globe after being nominated in the Best Original Score category for his music in the Danny Boyle directed film ‘127 Hours’ on Tuesday.

Remember the Mozart of Madras won global acclaim with the same Danny Boyle’s ‘Slumdog Millionaire’. So expectations are high that Rahman would bring home the Golden Globe this time too.

Rahman’s music in the film, starring James Franco as real-life mountain climber Aron Ralston, had received good reviews for its “haunting tracks” and “wonderful crescendos.” The soundtrack includes ‘If I Rise’, collaboration between Rahman and American pop star Dido.

The nominations to the coveted award were announced in Los Angeles on Tuesday and Rahman’s competition includes Alexandre Desplat who was nominated for ‘The King’s Speech’, Danny Elfman who was nominated for ‘Alice in Wonderland’, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross who were jointly nominated for ‘The Social Network’ and Hans Zimmer who won a nod for his score in ‘Inception’.

‘127 Hours’ is a biopic about Aron Ralston, who was trapped in a canyon in Utah for five days by a boulder that fell on his right arm and he freed himself by amputating the limb.
