Carrie Underwood Ecstatic for Receiving Golden Globe Nomination

carrie-underwoodCarrie Underwood is thrilled to receive her first nomination for a Golden Globe award.

Underwood, 27, is competing for Best Original Song for a Motion Picture. She co-wrote and performed the song entitled There’s A Place for Us, the track that accompanied the end credits of the film The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Her co-writers David Hodges and Hillary Lindsey will share with the nomination.

“I am absolutely thrilled by this wonderful honor today,” the multi-awarded entertainer said. “It was such an exciting endeavor to have been asked to create music for the film. I grew up with the books and have been a fan of the earlier two movies. I can’t wait for the Golden Globes!”

If she wins, she will add the award among the 109 trophies she have already collected which include 6 American Music Awards, 15 Billboard Music Awards and 5 Grammys.

Only one American Idol contestant has won a Golden Globe and that is Jennifer Hudson. However, this is in the acting category when she bagged Best Supporting Actress in 2006 for her role in Dreamgirls.

The song is competing against Coming Home from the film Country Strong (a song also co-written by Lindsey), I See the Light from Tangled and Bound to You and You Haven’t Seen the Last of Me from Burlesque.

The 68th Golden Globes will take place on January 16, 2011.
