2020 Grammy predictions: ‘A Star is Born’ could be the first Album of the Year soundtrack winner in 18 years
Soundtrack albums are rare when it comes to Grammy winners for Album of the Year. Only three have ever won the top prize, and none in 18 years. Could “A Star is Born” end that drought?

To date, the three honored soundtracks were “Saturday Night Fever” (1979), “The Bodyguard” (1994) and most recently “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” (2002). Other movie music compilations have been nominated over the years but haven’t won, including “West Side Story” (1962), “The Sound of Music” (1966), “Grease” (1979), “Flashdance” (1984), “Beauty and the Beast” (1993), “Waiting to Exhale” (1997) and “Black Panther” (2019).

The good news for “A Star is Born” is that we already know the recording academy likes it. Its centerpiece ballad, Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper‘s duet “Shallow,” won two Grammys last year and was also nominated for Record of the Year and Song of the Year. But the whole soundtrack album wasn’t eligible until now because of the Grammys’ unique eligibility period.
