Who would have guessed it was possible again? For the second time in three days, T Bone Burnett’s “The Weary Kind (Theme From Crazy Heart)” beat out Paul McCartney’s “(I Want To) Come Home.” The first time was Friday at the VH1 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. Sunday , it was at the 57th Annual Golden Globe Awards.
Paul McCartney, dressed in a tux and Beatle boots, got a lot of attention. His umbrella, seen at right and in the slideshow below, got a lot of attention on the red carpet. The Associated Press reported he received a round of applause as he took his seat inside.
He also was on camera several times. He gave an award for best animated feature (and made a joke about being the guy from “Rock Band.”) Host Ricky Gervais mentioned being on the plane with Paul, though he joked he sat in first class and Paul was in coach, a sly reference to Paul’s big divorce settlement to Heather Mills.
And Michael Giacchino, who won best movie score, acknowledged Paul by saying, “As I was coming up here, Paul McCartney just said ‘Go Michael!’ How great is that?”
The night may have not resulted the way Paul McCartney would have wanted, but there was enough views of Paul for the home audience. How great is that!
