Many of these films also got some Oscar love in this category — but not all.

Golden Globes voters showered Barbie with nine nominations, more than any other film this year. Three of those nominations were in the best original song category. “Dance the Night,” “I’m Just Ken” and “What Was I Made For?” are competing with Bruce Springsteen’s “Addicted to Romance” from She Came to Me, Lenny Kravitz’s “Road to Freedom” from Rustin and Jack Black’s “Peaches” from The Super Mario Bros. Movie (which the performer co-wrote with Aaron Horvath, Michael Jenic, Eric Osmond and John Spiker.)

Barbie is only the second film in Globes history to receive three nominations for best original song. The first was Aladdin more than 30 years ago. Alan Menken and Tim Rice co-wrote all three of those songs – “Friend Like Me,” “Prince Ali” and “A Whole New World.” In the case of Barbie, Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt co-wrote two of the songs – “I’m Just Ken” and “Dance the Night” (Dua Lipa and Caroline Ailin collaborated on the latter song). Billie Eilish and Finneas co-wrote the other nominated Barbie song, “What Was I Made For?”

Barbie is the 11th film in Globes history to spawn two or more nominations for best original song. We’ll take a look at those 11 films and also share how the Globes compared with the Oscars in saluting these films in the best original song category.

The Oscar for best original song dates back to 1934 (compared to 1961 for the Globes). The first film to yield two Oscar nominees for best original song was Fame (1980). The first to spawn three was Beauty and the Beast (1991).

Here are all the films that received two or more Golden Globe nominations for best original song.
