The nominations for the 58th annual Grammy Awards were released earlier this week, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice composer Hans Zimmer earned a nomination for his work on Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar. Zimmer’s competition for Best Score Soundtrack For Visual Media includes Antonio Sanchez (Birdman), Alexandre Desplat (The Imitation Game), Jóhann Jóhannsson (The Theory Of Everything), and Justin Hurwitz (Whiplash).
Zimmer already has four Grammys to his name for his work on The Lion King (he won two), Crimson Tide, and The Dark Knight.
After nearly ten years of writing music for Batman for Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, Zimmer decided that it would be best if he did not score all of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice himself. He brought in his friend Junkie XL who has been hard at work on the music for the Caped Crusader, allowing Zimmer to focus on Superman.
The 58th annual Grammy Awards air on February 15th on CBS.
