Grammys: Oscar Winners, Nominees, Wannabes to Face Off in Multiple Categories

Paramount Pictures
'The Wolf of Wall Street'

'Frozen,' 'American Hustle,' 'The Wolf of Wall Street,' 'Gone Girl,' 'Guardians of the Galaxy' all up for music prizes

A number of the categories for the 2015 Grammys, the nominations for which were unveiled Friday, look a lot like the categories from the 2014 Oscars, with Frozen, Her, Gravity, American Hustle, Saving Mr. Banks, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and The Wolf of Wall Street all earning nods for their music.

There are also a number of 2015 Oscar hopefuls sprinkled among this year's Grammy nominees, including Gone Girl and The Grand Budapest Hotel (up for best score); Get on Up and Guardians of the Galaxy, which could land an Oscar nod in one of the technical categories, (best soundtrack); and The Lego Movie and Glen Campbell, I'll Be Me (best song for visual media).

In the best soundtrack category, two-time 2014 Oscar winner Frozen will face off against 2014 Oscar nominees American Hustle and The Wolf of Wall Street and current Oscar hopefuls Get On Up and the music-filled Guardians of the Galaxy.

Frozen and fellow 2014 Oscar winner Gravity both were nominated in the best score category alongside Saving Mr. Banks, which received its only Oscar nod in the best score category, and current Oscar hopefuls Gone Girl, for its Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross-composed score, and The Grand Budapest Hotel.

Meanwhile, in the best song for visual media category, Her's "The Moon Song" faces off against Ed Sheeran's "I See Fire" from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and Frozen's "Let It Go," which won best original song at the 2014 Oscars. Songs from two current Oscar hopefuls: "Everything is Awesome" from The Lego Movie and "I'm Not Gonna Miss You" from Glen Campbell, I'll Be Me round out the nominees in that category.

American Hustle, The Wolf of Wall Street and Saving Mr. Banks failed to win a single Oscar after collecting prizes at various other awards shows, so the Grammy nod is another chance for those films to add to their trophy haul. Meanwhile, for Gone Girl, Grand Budapest, Get on Up, Guardians, The Lego Movie and Glen Campbell, the Grammys have given them all a nod as awards season heats up.

The Grammy's eligibility period from Oct. 1 of the previous year to Sept. 30 of the current year often creates these strange overlaps with Oscar contenders, which have a different eligibility period.
