It was the successful night for Madonna at Sunday's Golden Globes in Los Angeles (January 15, 2011), with the American pop superstar landing the prize for Best Original Song for W.E's ballad 'Masterpiece'. It was the second Globe for the singer-turned-filmmaker, who won Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical for 'Evita' in 1997.
During her acceptance speech, Madonna thanked her long-time manager Guy Oseary and studio boss Harvey Weinstein, whom she described as "the punisher" and spoke of how he 'believed' in her latest movie. The singer, who releases new album M.D.N.A later this year, was the target for one of host Ricky Gervais' putdowns, but she was quick to offer a retort. When introducing the singer to present the award for Best Foreign Language Film, Gervais joked that she was "a material girl", "always in Vogue" and "Just like a virgin", pulling a 'hard to believe' face after mentioning the latter. When arriving on-stage, Madonna hit back, "If I'm still just like a virgin, Ricky. Then why don't you come over here and do something about it.I haven't kissed a girl in a few years. On TV". Keen to have the last laugh, the British comedian was seen running for his life across the back of the stage.
Madonna's song 'Masterpiece' is a simple ballad, co-written by James Harry, and included on the soundtrack to W.E, which tells the story of King Edward Viii and his relationship with socialite Wallis Simpson. In the category of Best Original Score, Frenchman Ludovic Bource surprisingly beat Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross who were tipped to land the prize for their work on David Fincher's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
