Paul Epworth 'surprised' by Golden Globe nod
Paul Epworth is ''very surprised'' 'Skyfall' has been nominated for a Golden Globe Award.
The producer - who co-wrote and worked on the latest James Bond theme song with Adele - is always delighted to be recognised for his work but still can't believe the track is up for Best Original Song at the prestigious ceremony.
He told MTV News: ''Every single nomination in anything is really thrilling, but to have one in the film world as opposed to the music world, it's a really wonderful and very surprising step forward, you know?
''I used to do work on film scores as a tape op, so I've done quite a bit of this, but this was definitely the first time that I've done it in this capacity. And to be doing it in front of ['Skyfall' director] Sam Mendes and ['Bond' producer] Barbara Broccoli, it was definitely one of the most daunting sessions of my life.''
Paul - who won Producer of the Year at the 2012 Grammys - may be delighted by the nomination, but is unsure if he can make the Los Angeles ceremony on January 13 2013 as he has booked a holiday for the same time.
He added: ''I'm thrilled to be nominated, and weirder things have happened. To be honest, I have no idea if I'll even be able to make it. Ironically, I just finally booked a holiday yesterday, and I don't know if I'll be able to change my plans. It might be a difficult conversation to have with the wife.''
