The 63rd Grammy nominations were announced today and Beyoncé proved she is still the Queen by landing nine nominations, the most by any artist. Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa and Roddy Rich followed with six nominations each.

Of interest to movie lovers is the category of Best Song Written for Visual Media.  This year, the nominees are “Beautiful Ghosts” from Cats, “Carried Me With You” from Onward, “Into the Unknown” from Frozen 2, “No Time to Die” from No Time to Die and “Stand Up” from Harriet.  “Into the Unknown” and “Stand Up” were both nominated for Best Original Song at last year’s Oscars, both losing to “I’m Gonna Love Me Again,” from Rocketman.

With the Grammys being handed out on January 31 and the next James Bond movie No Time to Die not scheduled to be seen in theaters until April, there is a chance that the movie, and Billie Eilish who performed the song, could win a Grammy before anyone even sees the movie.  That’s 2020 for you.
