Last night we watched celebrities congregate in their Sunday best for the 72nd Golden Globes Awards. While watching the lengthy show, we perked up when it was time for the Best Original Song category and got our lives when Prince, in all his funkdafied glory, surprised the audience by announcing the nominees. While we can all agree Ava DuVernay's Selma was snubbed in the major categories, we were at least relieved the movie won Best Original Song for Common and John Legend's single "Glory." Their first time being nominated, the award was not only well deserved but represented more than the movie itself.
After Prince handed off the award, rapper and actor Common used his poetic speech to pay tribute to civil rights leaders, activists, unarmed black teens and murdered cops. The perfect platform for the tribute, Common also noted that his experience on the set changed his life. "Selma awakened my humanity," said Common*(insert Chrissy Teigen cry face here*). Watch Common and John Legend accept their award and, if you're so moved, you can purchase the single on on iTunes, Amazon and various digital outlets.
