The Grammy Awards are a big deal in the music industry, with the world’s top artists and composers fighting it out to see who is the best. This year, for the first time in the history of the Grammy Award, a videogame soundtrack has been nominated.
Journey has received a nomination in the Best Score Soundtrack For Visual Media category, alongside The Adventures of Tintin – The Secret of the Unicorn, The Artist, The Dark Knight Rises, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and Hugo. Such industry titans as John Williams, Hans Zimmer and Trent Reznor are among the composers nominated for the aforementioned projects. A pretty big achievement if you ask me.
Here is the tweet from composer Austin Wintory when he found out he had been nominated:
