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.”
