Not only is the soundtrack for The Greatest Showman No. 1 on the Billboard 200, but the P.T. Barnum musical biopic’s song “This Is Me” nabbed the best original song award at the 2018 Golden Globes.
Songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul previously won the same award for La La Land’s “City of Stars,” which also netted the Oscar for best original song in 2017. Shortly after that, the celebrated duo’s Broadway smash Dear Evan Hansen nabbed a Tony for best original score.
As an added bonus, the pair had their award handed to them by Kelly Clarkson and Keith Urban, who sang the words “the Golden Globe goes to…” before announcing the winner. As Kelly explained, “We’ve now officially sang at the Golden Globes.”
