- Other high-profile Hollywood figures landing Grammys noms include Kevin Hart, Dave Chappelle, Sarah Silverman and Seth MacFarlane as soundtracks and songs from movies released in both 2016 and 2017 face off for music's highest honor. More than nine months after the Oscars, La La Land has earned another day in the sun, as the music from the six-time Oscar winner landed four Grammy nominations on Tuesday. La La Land is just one of the 2016 Academy Award contenders making multiple appearances on the Grammy nominations list alongside a few 2017 Oscar hopefuls. (The eligibility period for the music awards show runs from Oct. 1 of the previous year to Sept. 30 of the current year.) La La Land will face off against three-time Oscar nominee Hidden Figures in the categories of best compilation soundtrack and score soundtrack for visual media. Two-time Oscar nominee Moana is also up for best compilation soundtrack for visual media, and its Oscar-nominated song "How Far I'll Go" will face off against La La Land's Oscar winner "City of Stars" in the best song written for visual media category. Other nominees in the best compilation soundtrack category include Baby Driver and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Awesome Mix Vol. 2. Joining La La Land and Hidden Figures in the best score soundtrack category are Game of Thrones: Season 7 as well as Oscar winner Arrival and this year's Oscar hopeful Dunkirk. Oscar song of the year hopefuls "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" (from Fifty Shades Darker) and "Stand Up for Something" (from Marshall) are also up for best song written for visual media, alongside Sia's "Never Give Up" from Lion. La La Land's "Another Day of Sun" also scored a mention in the category of best arrangement, instruments and vocals. Seth MacFarlane is another nominee in the arrangement category, and the Family Guy creator is also up for a Grammy for best traditional pop vocal album for In Full Swing. Donald Glover's musical alter ego Childish Gambino notched five Grammy noms, including for record of the year and album of the year. Glover was previously nominated for two Grammys in 2015. Carrie Fisher was posthumously nominated for best spoken-word album for the audio version of The Princess Diarist. Hollywood stars can also be found in the best comedy album category, with the nominees including Dave Chappelle (The Age of Spin & Deep in the Heart of Texas), Jim Gaffigan (Cinco), Jerry Seinfeld (Jerry Before Seinfeld), Sarah Silverman (A Speck of Dust) and Kevin Hart (What Now?). Additionally, the Grateful Dead documentary Long Strange Trip and HBO's Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre doc series The Defiant Ones are up for best music film, while the best musical theater album nominees are the original Broadway cast recordings of Come From Away, Dear Evan Hansen and Hello, Dolly!
