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.”
“Heathens” also garnered two additional nominations: Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance.
The use of music in “Suicide Squad” often 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 be presented Feb. 12 during a ceremony broadcast on CBS.
Written and directed by David Ayer, “Suicide Squad” stars Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood and Cara Delevingne.
