Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Clip

Hollywood and the music industry have occasionally crossed paths throughout the years — a pop star sings on a romantic-comedy soundtrack, a musician takes a dip in the acting pool — but in the era of needle drops and “Hans Zimmer is a rock god” takes, these intersections will only become more frequent.

Now that the Grammy Award nominations are out, Hollywood has scored big, raking in several nods for prolific blockbusters like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (best compilation soundtrack) and La La Land (best score soundtrack for visual media), as well a spoken word album nomination for the late and great Carrie Fisher. And of course we can’t go a year without Mr. Rock God himself, Zimmer, scoring two nominations for both Dunkirk and Hidden Figures.

Read on to see more of the Hollywood Grammy nominations.

Though it feels like eons ago that La La Land and Hidden Figures were at the center of awards buzz, they lead the pack again at the Grammys, tying with two nominations each in best compilation soundtrack for visual media and best score soundtrack for visual media. La La Land‘s Justin Hurwitz, Benj Pasek, and Justin Paul also earned a best song written for visual media nomination for “City of Stars.”

And though Fisher passed away last year, the Grammys are giving their own tribute to her with a posthumous nomination for best spoken word album for her reading of her memoir The Princess Diarist. She was previously nominated for a spoken word Grammy in 2009 for her book Wishful Drinking.
