Up also won the Golden Globe for best original score. And "The Weary Kind" from Crazy Heart won best song. Paul McCartney might have had a better shot if he had written a song for a better movie than Everybody's Fine.

Thompson on Hollywood

At the BAFTA party, I watched as McCartney, Quentin Tarantino and Jane Fonda sang each other's praises, which goes on a lot at these things. Fonda gushed to Tarantino about loving Christoph Waltz and the score. Her boyfriend, record producer Richard Perry, brought her to meet McCartney. She's co-starring with Daniel Bruhl in a French film, she said. (Fonda has a popular blog; here's her version of the Golden Globes party circuit.) McCartney told Tarantino how he had to watch Inglourious Basterds from the second row, peering up. Later I figured out how to meet my first Beatle when producer Jon Landau shyly said he'd like to meet him. I dragged Landau over to McCartney, broke through the circle, and shook his hand, saying, "I'd like to introduce you to the producer of 'Avatar.'" He then told Landau how he and his daughter saw the film in 2-D. She didn't want to see Avatar at all, because she thought she had already seen it on television. "She liked it, and we'll go see it in 3-D too," McCartney reassured Landau.
