Inceptionscore

Inception's score is considered to be a frontrunner.

The score of Avatar was released almost a year ago, but it was inelegible for the Grammys, because it was released after the Grammy's deadline, apparently. After many months, it got nominated for the category of Best Score Soundtrack Album For Motion Picture, Television Or Other Visual Media. This marks James Horner's 8th Grammy nomination, and this could be his third win. The widely acclaimed Avatar: Music from the Motion Picture has been nominated for several major awards, including the Oscars, Golden Globes and BAFTAS. James Horner will be facing other highly acclaimed soundtracks, most notably Inception (Hans Zimmer) and Alice in Wonderland (Danny Elfman), which are considered the frontrunners. The other nods go to Toy Story (Randy Newman), and Sherlock Holmes (Hans Zimmer, again).

Like as if that weren't enough, Avatar's theme song I See You also got a Grammy nomination this year, in the category of Best Song Written For Motion Picture, Television Or Other Visual Media. The song will be facing several critically successful songs, which in my opinion, may be better. Personally, I disliked I See You, so I disagree with this nomination in particular. Anyway, the frontrunner is obviously last year's Oscar winner The Weary Kind (Crazy Heart), which is a beautiful song. The other nominations include Down in New Orleans (The Princess and the Frog), Kiss Like You Kiss (True Blood, TV show), and This City (Treme, another TV show). I See You wasn't exactly lucky at this year's early awards, and even the Oscars decided to ignore it.

In my opinion, neither of the nominated Avatar works will win, as the Avatar Score is already old, and the voters are likely going to ignore it. In my opinion, Inception's score is superior than Avatar's, and I strongly believe it will win.

My bets:

  • Best Score Soundtrack Album For Motion Picture, Television Or Other Visual Media: Inception, Hans Zimmer
  • Best Song Written For Motion Picture, Television Or Other Visual Media: The Weary Kind, Crazy Heart

In your opinion, in which category should Avatar win? And if not, why?
