DiPiero isn't coming home with Golden Globe
January 16, 2011 - Andy Gray
Someone with area ties won a Golden Globe Award for writing music for a movie after all.
Liberty native Bob DiPiero, who was nominated for Best Original Song for co-writing “Coming Home” from the Gwyneth Paltrow film “Country Strong,” didn’t win. Diane Warren, who’s written numerous pop and soundtrack hits, picked up the prize for a tune from “Burlesque.”
DiPiero still has a good shot at an Academy Award nomination when they are announced Jan. 25.
The very next category was Best Score, and the winners there were Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for “The Social Network.” Nine Inch Nails frontman Reznor is a Mercer, Pa., native, and back in the ‘90s during NIN’s heyday, he was spotted at Eastwood Mall in Niles more than once when back home visiting friends and family.
OK, his local ties aren’t that strong, but we’ll take what we can get. And Lee Unkrich, who just accepted the Best Animated Film Award for “Toy Story 3,” is a Chagrin Falls native.
