Though she lost to Adele’s “Skyfall” theme at the Golden Globes last month, Taylor Swift came away victorious on Grammy night for her “Hunger Games” soundtrack contribution “Safe & Sound.”
The multi-platinum singer won the trophy for Best Song Written for Visual Media at the pre-televised ceremony alongside collaborators The Civil Wars and producer T-Bone Burnett, adding a seventh Grammy to her career haul and a third to the Civil Wars’ overall coffers.
In other film-related awards, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’s “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” soundtrack won for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media, giving Reznor his third Grammy (he won two with Nine Inch Nails) and Ross his first. The two also won an Oscar for their “Social Network” score at the 2011 Academy Awards.
The soundtrack to Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris,” meanwhile, won the Grammy for Best Compilation Soundtrack Album, beating out “The Descendants,” “Marley,” “The Muppets” and “Rock of Ages.” In the Broadway-adjacent realm, the Tony-winning stage adaptation of “Once” won Best Musical Theater album over “Newsies, “Follies,” “The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess” and “Nice Work If You Can Get It.”
