Awards Watch: Grammy Nominations 2008

The nominees for this year's Grammy Awards were announced yesterday, and below you will find the four categories of most interest to fans of stage and screen:

Best Musical Show Album:
Best Compilation Soundtrack Album for Motion Picture, Television 0r Other Visual Media:
Best Score Soundtrack Album for Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media:
Best Song Written for Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media:
Note that the cut-off dates for the Grammys are not by calendar year, thus why there are so many nominees from last year's films. The good showing of WALL-E in both score and song categories does bode well for future award prospects for Thomas Newman and Peter Gabriel. However, James Newton Howard and Hans Zimmer's Dark Knight score has already been disqualified from the Academy Awards.

The 51st Annual Grammy Awards will be broadcast live on CBS February 8.

UPDATE: In a surprise turn of events, the Academy's music branch has reversed their disqualification of the Dark Knight score.
