Journey soundtrack misses out on Grammy award

Austin Wintour's incredible soundtrack for Journey was the first videogame soundtrack as a whole nominated for a Grammy award - Best Compilation Soundtrack For Visual Media. In an interesting twist, while Wintour lost out in today's ceremony, the eventual winner was a man known for his groundbreaking work in videogame soundtracks: Trent Reznor. (Culture, Journey, PS3)

While it didn't win this one, the amount of awards Journey has won so far is a great feat for any video game.

I didn't know Trent did Quake...I thought he just did the sound track for Doom 3.

I don't even think a Grammy equals success, or acclaim. Sure, some great artists have nabbed Grammys, but so have some really awful ones. Austin Wintory is incredible, and he sure as heck doesn't need a Grammy to prove that.

Complete BS , the Grammys are a joke anyway. What won some Ke$ha song? Why are the Grammys even still around?

I think it's a little unfair to dismiss the Grammys as a whole but they do choose to nominate/award some ridiculous artists.

was cheering for Journey to win. oh well.

Let's not forget that "Who Let The Dogs Out?" won a Grammy...

Also, FUN won two Grammy's this year. There is NO credibility to the Grammy.

Being nominated is a big task Accomplished itself so not winning is ok. At least it got the recognition it deserved at the D.I.C.E awards which is the equivalent of an Oscar for video games. BTW FUN is a great band with great songs and deserved the Grammy's it won.

It's a shame Journey lost out but it's ok. Everyone knows how great the game and soundtrack is anyway and it's racked up a number of awards already.

Trent Reznor is a great artist too. Congrats to him.
