If you are an Oscar / movie fanatic who wants to get into the Grammys, the visual media arena is a good place to start. Honoring the best sheet music, soundtracks and songs made for television, film, and even video games, the estate has awarded iconic film scores, with past winners ranging from Disney’s’ The Lion King ‘to’ The Social Network ” To Lady Gaga“Shallow” from “A Star is Born”. Let’s take a look at this year’s nominees for these Media Music Awards.
Best Song Written For Visual Media
This category could have a wide range of media represented. The favorite in my opinion is HEROscar winner “Fight for You” in “Judas and the Black Messiah”. Winning the Oscar is not necessarily a guarantee of winning here (eg, “La La Land” “City of Stars” won the Oscar but lost the Grammy to “Moana” “How Far I’ll Go “), but SHE is a Grammy to say the least, scoring four wins in the past three years, including a surprise earlier this year for song of the year for” I Can’t Breathe, ”showing how popular she is with members of the Recording Academy. So triumphing was not a problem for her.
But another R&B singer and Oscar winner in this race is Jennifer hudson, who could come in with his track “Here I Am” from Oscar nominee “Respect”. She co-wrote the song with the legendary Carole king for the film about the legendary Aretha franklin.
The other nominees could all come from television, with an unusually high number of small screen contenders in the category. “Agatha All Along” Nominated for Emmy Awards from “WandaVision” by Previous Category Winners Robert lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez (“Let it Go” from “Frozen”) looks like a shoo-in. Another Emmy nominee, Bo burnham, could get into any of his tracks from his famous Netflix special “Inside”, possibly the viral “Comedy” or “All Eyes On Me”.
Olivia rodrigo is likely to have a big year with her debut album “Sour”, so she can score another name here with her cut of Disney + ‘s “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series”, “The Rose Song” . And finally, Grammy sweetheart and winner of last year in this race Billie Eilish (for the title song of “No Time to Die”) could enter this year with his single “Lo Vas a Olvidar” with Rosalia, from HBO’s “Euphoria”.
Other contenders include “Rain” from “The Suicide Squad”, “We Will” from “Space Jam: A New Legacy”, “So May We Start” from “Annette”, “Rain Song” from “Minari,” Call Me Cruella ”from“ Cruella ”and“ Crimson Love ”from“ Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist ”.
Best Compilation Soundtrack For Visual Media
“Respect” could easily be imposed because of Aretha Franklin’s name and heritage. Bo Burnham’s “Inside” would also be a sure-fire nominee, depending on whether his team submits it to Best Comedic Album or decides to try it out here. “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist” seems like the type of soundtrack voters would love, featuring both originals and classic hits like Rihanna‘s “Love in the Brain” and Toto‘s “Rosanna”.
“Annette” has the benefit of the acclaimed band Sparks with leading players Adam Pilot and Marion Cotillard perform the songs. “Space Jam: A New Legacy” is packed with some of the biggest names in hip-hop and R&B. And of course a soundtrack with the biggest star of the year is a total possibility, so don’t count on “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series”.
Other contenders include “In The Heights”, “Gossip Girl”, “Music”, “F9” and “Nobody”.
Best score for visual media
“Soul” has to be the favorite here. The three artists involved (Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross, and Jon batiste) are either past nominees or winners, and the soundtrack was widely acclaimed and won at the Oscars. And speaking of the Oscars, you can expect other crossovers from there including “Minari”, “Mank” and “News of the World” (“Da 5 Bloods” was already submitted last year) . Other film scores that might creep in include “Tenet” and “The Midnight Sky”.
On TV, there are a few suitors to watch out for. Ludwig Goransson has been an award magnet in recent years (including three Grammys, an Oscar, and an Emmy), so his work for “The Mandalorian” could earn a nomination here. Another Emmy nominated score is “Bridgerton,” which might be a somewhat unexpected (or perhaps not so unexpected) nominee since a lot of Grammy voters have likely seen the show. Other Emmy nominees who are strong possibilities include “WandaVision” (especially if it gets into Visual Media Song), “The Queen’s Gambit”, “The Underground Railroad”, “The Social Dilemma” and “American Masters”.
