The Terrifying Way Nick Jonas Found Out About His First-Ever Golden Globes Nomination

Nick Jonas has been pretty busy lately. He's on a worldwide press tour promoting his first major studio blockbuster Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, he wrote a song for the soundtrack of Ferdinand, and this week, it was revealed that he has been nominated for his first-ever Golden Globe, for Best Original Song.

Unfortunately for him, though, learning about his nomination wasn't a particularly pleasant experience. E! News reports that Jonas found out about the honor in a frightening manner.

"My wake up call this morning was one of my friends banging on my door because I wasn't answering my phone," he said. "He handed me his phone and at first I feared that something was wrong, but then it was my manager telling me the news and I freaked out. I was like a ten-year-old child who just got a new Gameboy."

Thankfully, despite the initial fear, it sounds like Jonas had a pleasant reaction to the happy news. The song he's nominated for—"Home," on the Ferdinand soundtrack—appropriately hits home for Jonas as well.

"The theme for the song was the idea of home being the place we feel most accepted and loved," he said. "Home being your family, your friends, your loved ones. When I started thinking about that it was sort of like an outpouring. I don't know that I have actually ever written a song about my family before, and so for the first one to be recognized in this way is great."

We wish Nick the best of luck with his first nomination. Tune into the Golden Globes on NBC on Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018 at 8 p.m. ET to see if he won.
