A video game score has finally been recognized as a potential Grammy Award winner.

Composer Austin Wintory's score for thatgamecompany and Sony's Journey has been nominated as one of six potential winners of its "Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media" award, competing against films that include The Dark Knight Rises and The Artist.

"I really don't have words right now," a shocked Wintory tweeted last night upon hearing the news.

Should Wintory win, it will be the first video game score to win, but not the first song. That honor goes to composer Christopher Tin, who won an award for "Baba Yetu," the opening theme to Firaxis' Civilization IV.
