The Grammy Award for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media (and its many previous names) is an honor presented to a composer or composers for an original score created for a film, TV show or series, video games or other visual media[1] at the Grammy Awards, a ceremony that was established in 1958 and originally called the Gramophone Awards.[2] Honors in several categories are presented at the ceremony annually by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of the United States to "honor artistic achievement, technical proficiency and overall excellence in the recording industry, without regard to album sales or chart position".[3]

It has been awarded since the 2nd Annual Grammy Awards in 1959. Until 2001, the award was presented to the composer of the music alone.[4] From 2001 to 2006, the producer and engineers shared in this award.[4] In 2007, the award reverted to a composer-only award.[4]
