'Game of Thrones' Earns First Grammy Nomination

While Game of Thrones is used to winning a ton of awards at the Emmys every year, in 2018 the HBO fantasy epic could do something completely different: win a Grammy Award.

For the first time, Game of Thrones earned a Grammy nomination for the season 7 soundtrack (maybe having Grammy winner Ed Sheeran appear as a guest star paid off). The category, Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media, is typically reserved for films. This year Thrones will have to compete against the scores of Arrival, Dunkirk, La La Land and Hidden Figures.

Landing a Grammy nomination in this category is a rarity for a TV show. In the last 25 years, only two other TV programs managed to compete against the movies: Stranger Things last year and the HBO miniseries Angels in America in 2005. Prior to that, you have to go way back to 1993 when the TV dramedy Northern Exposure was nominated.

The Grammy nomination is for composer Ramin Djawadi, who was previously nominated at the Grammys for his score to the film Iron Man. His composition on Game of Thrones earned him an Emmy nomination in 2014 for the fourth season. He also received Emmy nominations for the theme songs to Prison Break and Westworld.

Can Game of Thrones pull off an upset and add a Grammy to its 38 Emmy wins?
