Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas‘ emotional Barbie ballad “What Was I Mad For?” earned them the best original song award at the 2024 Golden Globes on Sunday (January 7).

The “Happier Than Ever” singer accepted the award with her big brother by her side.

“I was not expecting this in this moment. Thank you to my brother, Finneas. You are the reason I am who I am,” said Eilish. She also thanked director/writer Greta Gerwig, star Margot Robbie and others.

“It was exactly a year ago almost that we were shown the movie and I was very, very miserable and depressed at the time. Writing that song kind of saved me a little bit,” the seven-time Grammy winner added. “A year later and here we are. It’s really surreal. I feel incredibly, incredibly lucky, incredibly lucky and grateful.”

“What Was I Made For?” peaked at No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 in August. The song was nominated for the Golden Globe award alongside fellow Barbie soundtrack tunes “Dance the Night” by Dua Lipa and “I’m Just Ken,” performed by Ryan Gosling and written by Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt.

Bruce Springsteen‘s “Addicted to Romance” from She Came to Me, Jack Black‘s “Peaches” from The Super Mario Bros. Movie and Lenny Kravitz‘s “Road to Freedom” from Rustin were the other tracks nominated for the award.
