Rocketman won two of the three categories it was nominated for at the 2020 Golden Globes.

The first win of the night came for Best Original Song for “I’m Gonna Love Me Again.” Elton John and Bernie Taupin both accepted the award together with Elton noting, “It’s my first time I’ve ever won an award with him. We never won a Grammy!” Taupin then added, “This is really sweet because this is not just about a song we wrote for a movie, this is a song we wrote for a movie which deals with our relationship. It’s a relationship that doesn’t happen very much in this town. It’s a 52-year-old marriage, so, thank you!”

The second win came when Taron Egerton won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy for his portrayal of Sir Elton. Among Egerton’s many thank yous, he made sure to single out John by saying, “Thank you for being my friend.”

Rocketman was nominated for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy but lost to Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
