Composer Austin Wintory gets a well-deserved Grammy nomination for his work on Journey
The 55th annual Grammy Award nominations are out and an awesome video game is in the spotlight. Composer Austin Wintory received a nomination under the category Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media for his amazing work on the hit PSN title Journey.
It is up against some great competition including John Williams for "The Adventures of Tintin - The Secret of the Unicorn," Ludovic Bource for "The Artist," Hans Zimmer for "The Dark Knight Rises," Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and Howard Shore for "Hugo." It's not often you see a video game soundtrack get a nomination, but Wintory's work on Journey is simply brilliant and deserving of the honor.
Enjoy the nomination, and good luck at the Grammys.
