Rock legend BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN could barely contain his delight after winning a Golden Globe award.
The Born To Run hitmaker scored Best Original Song for the title track to acclaimed movie The Wrestler at the glittering ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday night (11Jan09).
Springsteen beat Peter Gabriel with Down To Earth from Wall-E, Jamie Cullum's title track from Clint Eastwood's Gran Torino, Miley Cyrus with I Thought I Lost You from Bolt, and Beyonce with Cadillac Records' Once In A Lifetime.
And the rocker was delighted to be even shortlisted in the same category as Hollywood legend Eastwood's acclaimed movie.
He told the crowd: "This is the only time I'm going to be in competition with Clint Eastwood."
Springsteen also thanked the film's star Mickey Rourke and director Darren Aronofsky for inviting him to be part of the movie, adding, "Thanks for thinking of me."
Springsteen's triumph was one of two awards for The Wrestler, with Mickey Rourke also picking up the prize for Best Actor.

Bruce Springsteen war in Los Angeles anwesend und hielt folgende Rede:

This is the only time I’m gonna be in competition with Clint Eastwood. Felt pretty good, too!
Anyway, Mickey called me in Ireland and he asked me for some music.He told me a little bit about the character; he said some people invest themselves in their pain, and they turn away from love and the things that strengthen and nurture their lives. He said this was a guy that hadn’t figured that out. So I said, “Well, I know a couple of those guys….” And so, the song.
First and foremost, I’d like to thank Mickey - without the call I wouldn’t have written the song, without his inspiration - thank you, brother, for a beautiful performance, thank you for thinking of me!
I’d like to thank Darren and all the folks involved with the film, for letting me be a small part of their picture - thank you.
Love to my strong and lovely wife Patti; hello to Evan, Jess and Sam at home. Happy birthday, Big Man Clarence Clemons.
