January 31, 2010 – The Score for Pixar’s UP Wins Two Grammy Awards

Up 1

“[Regarding “Married Life” as Ellie’s theme]…when you watch the film, it’s fun to see how that score changes with them as well.” – Michael Giacchino

On January 31, 2010, the 52nd Grammy Awards was held in Los Angeles, California. Michael Giacchino’s score for the Pixar film UP was awarded two Grammys: one for Best Score Soundtrack Album, beating out Alexandre Desplat’s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Nicholas Hooper’s Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Danny Elfman’s Milk, and Giacchino’s collaboration with Varese Sarabande for Star Trek; the other award was for Best Instrumental Composition for the piece “Married Life,” which was up against Paquito D’Rivera’s “Borat in Syracuse,” Tim Davies’ “Counting to Infinity,” Bob Florence’s “Fluffy,” and Steve Wiest’s “Ice-Nine.” It is one of the few scores in history to win an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, and a Grammy.
