The 2018 Golden Globe Awards ceremony was a meaningful evening for the beloved Tony-winning songwriters of Broadway hit Dear Evan Hansen. Benj Pasek and Justin Paul took home the Golden Globe in the Best Original Song category for their show-stopping number "This Is Me" (sung by Waitress alum Keala Settle) from the movie musical The Greatest Showman. Seth Meyers hosted the January 7 celebration of excellence in film and television.
