The soundtrack of Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad has been nominated for five Grammy Awards in four categories.
The album itself was nominated for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media, where it will face off against the soundtracks for Amy, Miles Ahead, Straight Outta Compton and Vinyl: The Essentials Season 1.
Suicide Squad also has two nominations in the “Best Song Written for Visual Media” category, with “Heathens” by Twenty-One Pilots and “Purple Lamborghini” by Skrillex and Rick Ross receiving nods. They’re up against “Can’t Stop The Feeling!” from Trolls, “Just Like Fire” from Alice Through the Looking Glass, “Try Everything” from Zootopia and “The Veil” from Snowden.
The use of music in Suicide Squad drew comparisons to the soundtrack for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which was nominated last year for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media. It lost out to the soundtrack for the documentary Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me, but maybe Suicide Squad will have better luck.
The 59th Grammy Awards will take place on February 12, broadcast on CBS.
