Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas have secured a Golden Globe for the title piece of the 25th Bond film No Time To Die. The soundtrack was written by film scorer Hans Zimmer, who also secured golden globes for his work on Dune (2021).
The No Time To Die soundtrack was released in 2020 but the film’s release was postponed thanks to the pandemic (no surprise there).
The Golden Globe secures the tradition of Bond theme songs winning the prestigious award – after Sam Smith’s Writing On The Wall (Spectre 2015) and Adele’s Skyfall (Skyfall 2012) both won the same award in their respective years. Both Smith and Adele secured the ‘best original song’ award at the Oscars shortly after, perhaps Eilish is set to do the same with No Time To Die?
There is no footage of the award being presented or speech’s from Eilish and Finneas due to NBC declining to televise the program. Last year it was revealed that there was a distressing lack of diversity in the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. This led to NBC dropping the show until they proved “meaningful reform.”
Congratulations to Billie and Finneas!
