U2 and Alex Ebert of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes took home the music awards at the 71st annual Golden Globes Sunday night, while HBO's film on Liberace continued to add trophies to its mantle.

U2's "Ordinary Love" from "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom" received the Best Original Song trophy, besting recordings from Coldplay, Taylor Swift and others. The band had won once before, in 2003 for "The Hands That Built America," from Martin Scorsese's "Gangs Of New York."

U2 guitarist The Edge said the band started working for Nelson Mandela and the anti-Apartheid movement when they were teenagers in the late 1970s. "It has taken 35 years to write this song," he said.
