The sound of Hogwarts is apparently music to Grammy's ears.
Even if the last "Harry Potter" adventure doesn't manage to conjure up some halfway decent Oscar nominations, we can at least rest assured that Grammy is a fan of "Deathly Hallows - Part 2." The film has been nominated in the category of Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media, along with "Black Swan," "The King's Speech," "The Shrine" and "TRON: Legacy" (go Daft Punk!).
"Burlesque," the movie that teamed up Cher and Christina Aguilera, managed to score two nominations: one for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media ("Tangled" was the only other film nominated in this television-dominated category) and another for Cher's "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me," which was nominated for Best Song Written For Visual Media.
A pat on the head is due to Justin Bieber, whose "Born To Be Somebody" from "Never Say Never" was also nominated for Best Song Written For Visual Media. The sorely underrated "Footloose" was also nominated in this category for Zac Brown's "Where the River Goes," as was "Tangled" (for "I See the Light," performed by Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi) and "Winnie the Pooh" (for Zooey Deschanel's "So Long").
