Little bit of YAS here...

2020 Grammy predictions: ‘A Star is Born’ could be the first Album of the Year soundtrack winner in 18 years

Soundtrack albums are rare when it comes to Grammy winners for Album of the Year. Only three have ever won the top prize, and none in 18 years. Could “A Star is Born” end that drought?

To date, the three honored soundtracks were “Saturday Night Fever” (1979), “The Bodyguard” (1994) and most recently “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” (2002). Other movie music compilations have been nominated over the years but haven’t won, including “West Side Story” (1962), “The Sound of Music” (1966), “Grease” (1979), “Flashdance” (1984), “Beauty and the Beast” (1993), “Waiting to Exhale” (1997) and “Black Panther” (2019).

The good news for “A Star is Born” is that we already know the recording academy likes it. Its centerpiece ballad, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper‘s duet “Shallow,” won two Grammys last year and was also nominated for Record of the Year and Song of the Year. But the whole soundtrack album wasn’t eligible until now because of the Grammys’ unique eligibility period. Last year’s deadline was September 30, 2018: “Shallow” was released as a single three days before that cutoff, while the rest of the album dropped five days after.

Will the long wait for awards consideration help it or hurt it? “Shallow” won its Grammys at the peak of enthusiasm for the film and its music; it ended up sweeping the awards season, including the Oscar for Best Original Song. So on one hand, maybe it missed its window of opportunity. Will it feel like yesterday’s news by the time the Grammys vote for their winners? On the other hand, the intense “Star is Born” media saturation might have worked against it. So much attention often leads to a backlash, so maybe a few extra months of absence will make Grammy voters’ hearts grow fonder.

Of course, the Grammy nominations haven’t even been announced yet (they’ll be unveiled November 20), so we don’t know for sure that “A Star is Born” will make the cut, but more than 2,000 Gold Derby users have given us their predictions so far, and they’re pretty confident it will. As of this writing it ranks third with 12/1 odds in a race that will have eight nominees, so it’s looking like a pretty safe bet. And three of our Top 24 Users currently think it will win. Those top users got the highest scores predicting last year’s nominations, so their forecasts carry greater weight. Are they right?

Really hope this can win the soundtrack for visual media award. It’s definitely been the biggest but part of me is feeling like Beyoncé’s Lion King album might get it because it’s Bey sad.gif

I really felt this would’ve gotten an album of the year nomination too.

Hopefully she’ll win at least one GRAMMY next year though to put her in double figures.


Also.. this has passed 500K sales now in the UK. Eventually should get double platinum hopefully?

I'm happy with 3 noms, especially considering all of Shallow's nominations fell into last year.

Yes 3 this year plus Shallow last year make the era super successful at the Grammys. AOTY nom would've been good though...

What amazing news to return home to. 3 nominations + the Shallow ones last year - what an era.

Yes, I am slightly disappointed at the lack of nomination for the album as a whole but really we can't complain given how adorned it has been. We can't have it ALL kink.gif

I am most happy about Always Remember Us This Way getting SONG OF THE YEAR nomination. What an accolade, and so so deserved wub.gif

Same! I'll FUME if it doesn't win. It really does deserve some recognition.

It's a very tough competition, i'm not sure it will get it. To be nominated is enough for me at this stage, I didn't think it would get a look in what with it not being a fully fledged single and overshadowed by Shallow!

A Star Is Born is the most nominated female soundtrack in Recording Academy History! It has overtaken Whitney's Bodyguard soundtrack!

Not sure what the mindset is like from the Grammys when it comes to selecting winners but, looking at the list, I feel like 'I’ll Never Love Again' may have the best chance of winning Best Song Written for Visual Media. Certainly feels like it had the most impact anyway.

I'd like to think Gaga will win at least one of her categories anyway and I'll be happy with that.
