Grammy Awards an ‘insult’ to games

Ben Parfitt

EA’s music boss has slammed the Grammy Awards for not giving games the recognition they deserve.

He called on organisers The National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (NARAS) – to learn from BAFTA and show games ‘respect.’

“I’ve been spearheading a campaign to get the Grammy Awards to recognise ‘Best Video Game Score’ as its own category rather than its current position in ‘Best Score for a Motion Picture, Television Or Other Visual Media’,” said EA’s music boss Steve Schnur.

“This generalisation of ‘Other Visual Media’ isn't merely an insult to the games industry, but a blatant dismissal of these musicians and composers. Hopefully, NARAS will take a page from BAFTA and give games the respect and recognition they deserve.”
