Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Receives 3 Grammy Nominations
Earlier this year, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse capped off the awards season by winning the Oscar for Best Animated Feature. And it doesn’t look like the original film is done racking up accolades just yet. Via Pitchfork, the movie will continue its awards push into 2020 at the annual Grammys ceremony.
Into the Spider-Verse will compete in three different categories at next year’s Grammys. Rapper Post Malone received two of these nods for “Sunflower,” which Miles Morales sang along to at various points in the film. The track, which featured guest vocals from Swae Lee, also served as the movie’s theme song. “Sunflower” earned nominations for Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
Additionally, Into the Spider-Verse received a nomination for Best Compilation Soundtrack For Visual Media. Aside from Post Malone’s contribution, the film’s soundtrack also boasted cuts from several notable names in hip-hop. Those artists included Vince Staples, Blackway and Black Caviar, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Ty Dolla Sign, and Jaden Smith. Into the Spider-Verse will face some heavy competition in this category. It will go up against The Lion King, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Rocketman, and A Star in Born.
Previously, Into the Spider-Verse won both the Golden Globe and Annie Award for Best Animated Feature. Back in March, the film received an Outstanding Soundtrack/Compilation nod at the NAACP Image Awards. “Sunflower” was also recently nominated for Choice R&B/Hip-Hop Song at this summer’s Teen Choice Awards ceremony.
The 2020 Grammy Awards will air on Sunday, January 26 on CBS.
