Now Wiz Khalifa can add “Golden Globe Nominee” to his already-impressive résumé.
Having already landed three 2016 Grammy nods, the Taylor Gang frontman has now been nominated for the Best Original Song at the upcoming Golden Globes for his mega-successful single “See You Again” with Charlie Puth. The song has already garnered numerous accolades; it topped the Billboard Hot 100 for 12 non-consecutive weeks, and its accompanying video became the first to surpass one billion views on YouTube. “See You Again” will square off against the likes of Sam Smith (“Writing’s On The Wall”), Ellie Goulding (“Love Me Like You Do”),” Davi Lang (“Simple Song #3), and Brian Wilson (“One Of A Kind”).
Wiz’ Golden Globe nomination directly follows its 2015 predecessor, Common and John Legend’s “Glory.” That song went on to win the Golden Globe, and then the Oscar for Best Original Song. Whether Wiz wins the trophy remains to be seen, but fans can tune in to NBC on January 10th to see if he does so.
