Billie Eilish didn’t forget to be happy at the 2024 Golden Globes. The 22-year-old pop star and brother Finneas won the best original song – motion picture trophy for their emotional Barbie ballad “What Was I Made For?” on Sunday (Jan. 7), beating out other music heavyweights for the victory.

The “Happier Than Ever” singer accepted the award with her big brother by her side. “I was not expecting this in this moment Thank you to my brother, Finneas. You are the reason I am who I am,” she began, a big smile on her face, before thanking director/writer Greta Gerwig, star Margot Robbie and more.

The seven-time Grammy winner then got personal. “It was exactly a year ago almost that we were shown the movie and I was very, very miserable and depressed at the time. Writing that song kind of saved me a little bit,” she shared. “A year later and here we are. It’s really surreal. I feel incredibly, incredibly lucky, incredibly lucky and grateful.”

She then addressed all of the stars in the room with her at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles: “You guys scare the living hell out of me — everyone in this room! Thank you so much! This means the world!”

“What Was I Made For?” — which peaked at No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 in August — was nominated alongside fellow Barbie soundtrack tunes “Dance the Night” by Dua Lipa and “I’m Just Ken,” performed by Ryan Gosling and written by Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt. Also receiving nods in the category were Bruce Springsteen’s “Addicted to Romance” from She Came to Me, Jack Black’s “Peaches” from The Super Mario Bros. Movie and Lenny Kravitz’s “Road to Freedom” in Rustin.

Jo Koy hosted the 2024 Golden Globes, which were produced by dick clark productions.
