Abel talks Golden Globes, and making music with Madonna
In talking about mainstream award shows and the predictability of their annual nominees lists, the Golden Globes are often the hardest to predict in that their nominees always include a few unexpected surprises. This year, no one was perhaps more pleasantly surprised at hearing the 2012 nominations than composer Abel Korzeniowski, who scored a Best Original Score nomination for his work on “W./E.,” the Madonna-directed romantic drama that has yet to be released wide in theaters.
“It’s quite difficult when a movie is not really in theaters,” Korzeniowski told MTV News recently of his disbelief in being nominated. “So far we’ve had only the qualifying run which was one theater in Los Angeles so almost no one had seen the film. It was even more surprising because we have no ads anywhere, not on the Internet, not in newspapers so I thought it wouldn’t be possible.”
