The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards are more than a month away, scheduled to take place 26th January next year and while it is understandably difficult to rein in the excitement and bursting curiosity till then, at least we have the various nominations in 84 categories to obsess over. And when we have “Avengers: Endgame” and “Game Of Thrones” nominated in the same category in the Grammy 2020…well, that calls for some serious discussion!
Grammy 2020’s category “Best Score Soundtrack For Visual Media” has a number of nominations under it, starting with Hans Zimmer’s “The Lion King”, “Chernobyl” (Hildur Guðnadóttir), and Marc Shaiman’s “Mary Poppins Returns”. But the ones attracting the majority of attention and hype are TV series “Game Of Thrones” (Ramin Djawadi) and Alan Silvestri’s “Avengers: Endgame”.
As you must be aware, both “Avengers: Endgame” and the last season of Game of Thrones are pretty much the only topics that have reigned over the Internet in 2019, with people practically devoting every waking hour to mull over their tiniest spoiler. While Game of Thrones’ Season 8 was in the limelight for all the wrong reasons, with even the most ardent fans disgruntled over the finale the epic series received, “Avengers: Endgame” marked the much-awaited culmination of an era in Marvel movies, treating the audience with a climax they will be talking about even years from now.
But despite the negative reviews “Game Of Thrones” still managed to nab the biggest title at the Primetime Emmy Awards this year- the Best Drama Series. As for the final instalment of Marvel’s phase four of the superhero series, we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect ending to the journey we had been zealously following for the past decade. Registering as one of the most successful movies in film history, Avengers: Endgame collected a global box-office collection of $2.78 billion.
Every year, the prestigious Grammy awards honour the most deserving personalities from the music industry from the previous and this year is also going to follow the same annual tradition. The nominations list for the same was recently released and topping the list are Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X, and Lizzo with the latter having eight nominations and the former two at six nominations each. The award ceremony is set to take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California next year.
