‘The Hunger Games’ scores Grammy for ‘Safe and Sound’

The Grammy Awards this past weekend were primarily about honoring the best of the music industry — but The Hunger Games movie also took the spotlight when the movie won a Grammy award for Best Song Written for Visual Media.

Taylor Swift, John Paul White and Joy Williams of The Civil Wars, and T.

That didn’t stop Swift from proclaiming to her Twitter followers, “WE JUST WON A GRAMMY FOR SAFE AND SOUND!!!!!!!”

Fellow Hunger Games soundtrack song “Abraham’s Daughter” by Arcade Fire was also among the nominees in this category.
