The visual media categories at the Grammys are often my favorites because of my love of film and TV, so I thought that there should be its own thread for the score, soundtrack and song categories. My predictions right now for each category are:
Phantom Thread—Jonny Greenwood
The Shape Of Water—Alexandre Desplat
Star Wars: The Last Jedi—John Williams
Stranger Things: Season 2—Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein
Call Me By Your Name
The Greatest Showman
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again
Ready Player One
“All The Stars”—Black Panther (Kendrick Lamar)
“Mystery Of Love”—Call Me By Your Name (Sufjan Stevens)
“Remember Me”—Coco (Miguel & Natalia Lafourcade)
“Shallow”—A Star Is Born (Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper)
“This Is Me”—The Greatest Showman (Keala Settle)
Be sure to also share your predictions below.October 9, 2018 at 3:18 pm #1202649384
I don’t think Star Wars will be nominated this time.October 9, 2018 at 3:27 pm #1202649392
The Grammys seem to love nominating John Williams as much as the Oscars do, which is why I have him in my predictions.October 9, 2018 at 3:43 pm #1202649402
I have a feeling they’ll snub my baby Sufjan. I hope they don’t.October 9, 2018 at 4:04 pm #1202649417
Most people didn’t seem to care for Solo: A Star Wars Story (although I personally liked it), so I’m guessing Grammy voters probably won’t even bother to consider it.October 9, 2018 at 4:39 pm #1202649432
True, but Grammy voters haven’t warmed up to live musical soundtracks yet from the past few years. And with Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, Grammy voters could feel “been there, done that” with the first film’s soundtrack.October 9, 2018 at 4:47 pm #1202649434
Do NOT forget the Oscar-nominated, “Mudbound.”October 9, 2018 at 4:52 pm #1202649437
yeah, Mudbound is more likely to get in than Mystery just from Mary J. Blige’s name alone.October 9, 2018 at 4:59 pm #1202649439
True, but Grammy voters haven’t warmed up to live musical soundtracks yet from the past few years.
Then again, Jesus Christ Superstar did overperform in Emmy nominations, so I don’t know how many more times we’ll keep underestimating it. Also don’t forget that the original concept recording was nominated for Album of the Year back in 1972, so I think that coupled with the star power from previous Grammy nominees/winners like John Legend, Sara Bareilles, and Alice Cooper could help.October 9, 2018 at 5:07 pm #1202649441

Which was probably what happened with Beauty & the Beast last year. Despite that film’s soundtrack being a huge hit, composer Alan Menken being an 11-time winner, and the soundtrack for the 1991 animated classic receiving 5 Grammy nominations (especially for both Album and Song of the Year), the live action remake failed to receive a single nomination by the recording academy. When that happened, I knew ‘Evermore’ was going to be vulnerable in receiving an Oscar nomination for Best Original Song.October 11, 2018 at 12:06 am #1202650487
Jesus Christ Superstar and Black Panther are the frontrunners, in my opinion, even though I think they should be able to submit Jesus Christ Superstar into Musical Theatre Album instead.
