John Williams Wins Grammy Award for 'The Force Awakens' Soundtrack

By: Dominic Jones

Over a year after its release in theaters, Star Wars: The Force Awakens has picked up another award.  John Williams picked up the award for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media for his work on the soundtrack for The Force Awakens at the 2017  Grammys.  The presentation was made during a non-televised portion of the award ceremony. 

This is the fifth Grammy that Williams has won for his work on the Star Wars films (three for A New Hope and one for The Empire Strikes Back) and his 23rd Grammy overall.  The Force Awakens was also nominated for Best Soundtrack at last year's Academy Awards, but lost to Ennio Morricone's score for The Hateful Eight

Congratulations to Williams on another win!  He is currently working on the score for the eighth film in the Skywalker saga, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which hits theaters this December.
