David Bowie and the Golden Globes

The singer was nominated in 1982 for a song recently selected for an epic new treatment.

As news of David Bowie’s passing spread last night, DJs at the Golden Globes after-parties in Beverly Hills started playing some of the trailblazer’s many greatest hits. Soon, a new version of Bowie’s 1982 Globes-nominated collaborative composition will also be ringing out far and wide.

Shooter Jennings announced last week that his new album releasing Feb. 26 includes a cover of “Cat People” featuring Marilyn Manson. It’s part of an LP tribute to the song’s titanic producer Giorgio Moroder, but of course will now also stand as a fitting tribute to Bowie.

On Twitter last night, Moroder posted a photo taken at the time of his collaboration with Bowie. At the 1983 Globes ceremony, Bowie lost individually to another artist with the last name of Jennings. RIP.
