There will be an award for Best Video Game Soundtrack at the 2023 Grammy Awards.
As the Recording Academy is officially announced, there will be five new Grammy categories as well as the new Special Merit Award for Best Song For Social Change at the 65th Grammy Awards held in 2023.
In addition to the Songwriter Of The Year, Non-Classical, Best Alternative Music Performance, Best Americana Performance and Best Spoken Word Poetry Album awards, a Grammy will also be awarded for the Best Score Soundtrack For Video Games And Other Interactive Media.
The latter is intended to be awarded to Score Soundtrack Albums consisting primarily of original scores and created specifically for or to complement a recent video game or other interactive media released within the Qualification Period.
“We are thrilled to honor these diverse communities of music creators through the newly established awards and changes, and to continue cultivating an environment that inspires change, progression and collaboration,” said Harvey Mason Jr., CEO of Recording Academy. “The Academy’s highest priority is to effectively represent the musicians we serve, and that means listening to our members each year and ensuring that our rules and policies reflect our ever-evolving industry.”
