    Honey, I highly doubt songs from Beyonce’s Lemonade are eligible in this field.

    I agree, as it was basically an hour-long music video for all the songs on the album.

    The songs probably aren’t eligible for the category, but it’s an interesting question since Lemonade was an HBO special, which should constitute it as a “visual media.” I tried to find guidelines for the category eligibility, but had no luck.

    Lemonade will probably be nominated for Best Music Film.

    Everyone is underestimating Rise in this category, I think Katy Perry has a good chance on getting a nod this year in Best Song Written For Visual Media, and with the current Academy Award being Snubbed for Grammys last year it will be a more intersting race

    Well, the Grammy nominations are officially out. I’ll indicate which nominees I correctly predicted with an asterisk (*).

    Best Score:
    Bridge Of Spies—Thomas Newman*
    The Hateful Eight—Ennio Morricone*
    The Revenant—Ryuichi Sakamoto & Alva Noto*
    Star Wars: Episode VII—The Force Awakens—John Williams*
    Stranger Things: Volume 1—Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein
    Stranger Things: Volume 2—Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein

    Best Soundtrack:
    Amy
    Miles Ahead
    Straight Outta Compton
    Suicide Squad*
    Vinyl: The Essentials—Season 1

    Best Song:
    “Can’t Stop The Feeling!”—Trolls (Justin Timberlake, Anna Kendrick, Gwen Stefani, James Corden, Zooey Deschanel, Walt Dohrn, Ron Funches, Caroline Hjelt, Aino Jawo, Christopher Mintz-Plasse & Kunal Nayyar)*
    “Heathens”—Suicide Squad (Twenty One Pilots)*
    “Just Like Fire”—Alice Through The Looking Glass (Pink)
    “Purple Lamborghini”—Suicide Squad (Skrillex & Rick Ross)
    “Try Everything”—Zootopia (Shakira)*
    “The Veil”—Snowden (Peter Gabriel)*

    So overall, I got 9 out of 16, or 56% of these nominations correct, which isn’t too bad I guess. Very glad to see I was mostly right with my score predictions.

    Admittedly with soundtrack, I had assumed Amy and Straight Outta Compton were released as soundtracks in last year’s Grammy eligibility period, as their movie counterparts had been released in the summer of 2015. Next year, I should definitely pay more attention to soundtrack release dates. I didn’t think Vinyl would capture the Recording Academy’s attention due to its troubled production history, but I guess the combination of Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger was too hard to ignore.

    As for song, I had a feeling “Can’t Stop The Feeling!” and “Heathens” would be shoo-in nominations here. “Can’t Stop The Feeling!” did get nominated at the Critics Choice Awards, but “Heathens” did not. We’ll see how they do at the Golden Globes and the Oscars. I vastly underestimated Pink in this category, so kudos to Tyler The Awesome Guy
    for predicting her. I shouldn’t have forgotten how much Grammy voters love almost anything she does. “Try Everything” I wasn’t too sure, but I predicted it anyway due to Shakira singing the track and Sia writing it. “The Veil” was a dark horse for me; admittedly I predicted it because I wasn’t sure what else to predict after I had to take “Writing’s On The Wall” out of my predictions after learning it was submitted last year. I didn’t think the Grammy voters would actually nominate it, but lo and behold they did. Glad to see Peter Gabriel still resonates strongly with them. After all, he did win this category 8 years ago for “Down To Earth” from WALL-E.

    What about all of you, though? What do you think of these nominations?

    Honey, I hope “Can’t Stop The Feeling!” does not win Best Song From Visual Media. #Barf

    Cant Stop The Feeling will win, as it was only one in the category to me nominated for an Oscar or golden globe. Though, I would like Just Like Fire to win..

    “Heathens” didn’t get nominated for an Oscar. “Can’t Stop The Feeling!” did.

    Voting ended before Oscar noms came out.

    “Can’t Stop The Feeling!” had just as much, if not more, radio exposure than “Heathens.”

    Well that doesn’t stop it from being literally one of the worst songs of the year 🙂
