Leona Lewis sees Golden Globe Nomination (huh?)
Former X Factor winner Leona Lewis has been (unbelievably) nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Original Song for the credits of James Cameron’s new sci-fi epic Avatar.
Her song I See you is up for the award even though it’s induced embarrassed flinching from most of the audience when I saw the film last week. It’s like Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On all over again, which was the theme to Cameron’s last film, 1997’s Titanic. Coincidentally it has a particular significance for Lewis.
“I was a huge fan of Titanic and went to see it three times. And I won my first ever talent show aged 13 singing My Heart Will Go On” she said.
She saw Titanic three times? That’s nine hours of your life you’ll never get back….
