Grammy Nomination For Marvel's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Soundtrack

Nominations for the 57th annual Grammy Awards went out today and several soundtracks and songs from films that we cover made the cut. Most notably, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy received a nomination in the Best Compilation Soundtrack category.

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy was a monster-hit at the box office this year, becoming the top-grossing film at the domestic box office. One of the many reasons the film was such a success was its chart-topping soundtack, "Awesome Mix Vol. 1," which contained songs from the 1960s and 1970s like David Bowie’s “Moonage Daydream,” The Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back,” Marvin Gaye’s “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” and The Runaways’ “Cherry Bomb”. It has sold over a 100,000 copies and in August it hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200. With all that success, it should come as no surprise today that the soundtrack was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Compilation Soundtrack category. We'll have to watch the presentation on February 8, 2015 to find if they won.

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy's fate in the balance.
