U2 Land Golden Globe For 'Ordinary Love' Mandela Tribute Track

U2 took home a Golden Globe for their Nelson Mandela tribute track.

The Irish rockers were nominated for the Best Original Song award for "Ordinary Love" at the 71st annual awards ceremony, held last night in Los Angeles, beating contenders Justin Timberlake (for his Inside Llewyn Davis track "Please Mr. Kennedy"), Coldplay (for "Atlas" in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), "Let It Go" (from the Disney film Frozen), and Taylor Swift (for "Sweeter Than Fiction" featured in One Chance).

The song was featured in the biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, starring Idris Elba. As the band accepted the award, frontman Bono noted:

"This really is personal for us. This man turned our life upside down, right-side up, a man who refused to hate, not because he didn't have rage or anger or these things, but that he thought love would do a better job. We wrote a love song because it kind of is what is extraordinary about the film - it is kind of a dysfunctional love story."
