Grammy Awards History With Soundtracks

This esteemed category recognizes the curation and integration of music into films, television shows, and other visual media, honoring those compilations that have left an enduring imprint on audiences.

Over the years, this category has seen a diverse array of winners, reflecting the eclectic nature of soundtracks across various genres. In 1994, the iconic soundtrack for “The Bodyguard,” featuring Whitney Houston’s powerhouse vocals on hits like “I Will Always Love You,” claimed the award, setting a high standard for the years to come.

The turn of the century brought forth winners like the “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” soundtrack in 2002, a masterpiece that revitalized interest in traditional American folk music. The soundtrack of the popular musical film “A Star Is Born” starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper took the spotlight in 2020, featuring the chart-topping ballad “Shallow.”

One of the most notable aspects of this category is its ability to showcase a wide spectrum of musical genres, from pop and rock to hip-hop and classical. The “La La Land” soundtrack, recognized in 2018, demonstrated the fusion of jazz with modern cinematic storytelling.
