Its all music to ears for composer A R Rahman as he braces himself to win his second Golden Globe after being nominated in the Best Original Score category for his music in the Danny Boyle directed film 127 HOURS.

The highly-acclaimed singer-composer had won his first Golden Globe in 2009 in the same category for SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, a movie based around Mumbai.



The 'Mozart of Madras' had also won two Oscars for his score in SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE at the 2009 Oscars.

The soundtrack of the James Franco-starring 127 HOURS, based on a heroic real-life experience of mountain climber Aron Ralston, was received well by critics.

Said to have been recorded within three weeks in London, the soundtrack includes 'If I Rise', a long-awaited collaboration between Rahman and British singer Dido.

The nominations to the coveted award were announced on Tuesday.

Rahman faces a tough fight from Alexandre Desplat who was nominated for THE KING'S SPEECH, Danny Elfman who was nominated for ALICE IN WONDERLAND, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross who were jointly nominated for THE SOCIAL NETWORK and Hans Zimmer who has won more than a nod for his score in INCEPTION.
