The Grammy Awards are being handed out tonight which means that the best music had to offer in 2013 is being honored in Los Angeles at the Staples Center. It’s not just pop music that is being honored at the Grammys though, as music in film is also going see Grammys handed it’s way as well.

Of the three movie categories, Best Score is perhaps one of the most well known categories universally. Much like the Oscars, the Grammys hand out awards for the best film score composed form the last year, although you’ll see titles dating back to 2012 when it comes to awards handed out.

That doesn’t mean that the nominated titles aren’t worthy, it just means that the Grammys are a little behind when it comes to honoring the best film music of the current year.

Nevertheless, of the very deserving nominees, it was Skyfall that walked away with the Grammy.
