Indian music maestro AR Rahman could not get lucky the second time. He lost out on the trophy for the best original score – motion picture for Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours at the 68th Annual Golden Globes Awards to Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross who won it for The Social Network.
Rahman, the double Oscar-award wining composer, was competing with the likes of Alexandre Desplat (The King’s Speech), Danny Elfman (Alice in Wonderland) and Hans Zimmer (Inception).
This was the Chennai-based composer’s second stint at Hollywood’s second most prestigious annual movie prize after Boyle’s Mumbai-based underdog drama Slumdog Millionaire.
The soundtrack of 127 Hours includes the popular song If I Rise, a collaboration between Rahman and pop star Dido that won the Mozart of Madras, as he is fondly called, the best original song award at the 16th Critics’ Choice Movie awards on Friday.
