    Journey soundtrack nominated for Grammy Award

    Composer Austin Wintory (Grace, Captain Abu Raed) received the nomination for Journey's soundtrack in the Best Score Soundtrack For Visual Media category in the 55th Annual Grammy Awards, the only video game to be nominated at this year's awards. It also marks the first time a video game soundtrack has been nominated in the Grammys.

    Wintory is up against John Williams for
    The Adventures Of Tintin--The Secret Of The Unicorn; Ludovic Bource for The Artist; Hans Zimmer forThe Dark Knight Rises; Howard Shore for Hugo; and Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.

    Last year, American composer Christopher Tin took home the Grammy Award for Civilization IV opening song Baba Yetu, marking the first time a video game composition has won in the awards' history.

    The Journey soundtrack is made up of 18 tracks composed and arranged by Wintory. It reached position 116 on the Billboard sales charts and made over 4000 sales in its first week of release, the second-highest charting video game soundtrack to date after 2007's Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock.

    This is pretty awesome. Congratulations to Mr. Wintory and I hope he wins because this is an amazing soundtrack.

    A small step for the Grammy awards, one giant leap for the video game industry.

    That's awesome. Something having to do with video games actually getting nominated at the Grammy's, now that's big.

    Glad to hear of an underdog game being nominated especially in a category such as this.

    Not too sure of the outcome as Hugo was incredible, heres hoping

    This is actually the first video game song that won a grammy.




    the funniest part is that this song won when it was in a non-video game album, but the song was originally created for civilization 4, so technically it's a video game song ( the artist made it very clear on the grammy stage) and the grammys went "oh shit we let a game in our awards oh fuck"

    but yea, PC Gaming was the first platform to get a grammy. PC is always first.

    Agreed. Might end up getting the retail game of Journey.

    Forget about Halo's overrated score. There's been better ones in the past 10 years (from games like Final Fantasy and The Legend of Zelda to Shadow of the Colossus and Portal 2), and just now they decide to nominate on that, although great (that goes without a doubt), it's of the same quality as some of Uematsu's or Kondo's pieces.

    Oh well, we'll see how it fares. I highly doubt it will win, what with Williams being there (although slighty above average, he gets a lot of praise all the time), Hans getting a lot of love and putting out much quality work in the past few years and The Artist's score being great as well.

    Awesome news! It's a fantastic score to a fantastic game. It should be irrelevant where the music comes from anyway.
    Seeing Journey get so little mention in all the gaming awards hype has been sad, nice to see some recognition somewhere

    martin o Donnell is a god at that. Halo 4 doesn't have anything as memorable as all of those but it's still really good.

    I'm sorry, but no. It's a score that works (and might even be considered 'memorable'), yes, but the overall quality of the music itself makes you wish for more, specially considering how average it is. Same goes for other overrated scores such as God of War's and Gears of War's, and let's not even talk about other "loved" scores such as Sonic's.

    Excellent news - Journey was a truly outstanding game, so it's great to see it receiving widespread recognition outwith the videogame industry. I'm now tempted to buy the soundtrack from the PS Store if it's still available.
