While pop music and other forms of radio friendly music is honored at the Grammy Awards, movies still get a little sliver of attention in the three categories dedicated to music in film.
One of those categories focuses on soundtrack compilations, which is soundtracks that have previously released music compiled together. The first nominated title pretty much sums up the purpose and meaning of the category as Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained meshes music from spaghetti westerns to James Brown soul combined with Tupac lyrics. It was the clear front runner to win based off a sheer popularity, but you can never count out the musically sound Les Miserables, which is literally musical theater captured on a compact disc.
While it seemed hard to choose a winner from just looking at the nominated soundtracks, after hearing the winner it became clear that Sound City: Real to Reel deserved to win the Grammy for Best Soundtrack Compilation.
The Great Gatsby (Deluxe Edition)
Les Misérables (Deluxe Edition)
Sound City: Real To Reel — WINNER
