We haven't paid attention to the Grammys in years, mostly because it's irrelevant, these days we're barely familiar with half the nominees, and the show is usually pure tedium. (Don't even get us started on that Beach Boys tribute thing last year.) But for movie buffs looking to maintain their awards season high, yesterday's announcement of Grammy nominees did bring with it some films that are looking to collect gold from their pals in the music biz.

We haven't paid attention to the Grammys in years, mostly because it's irrelevant, these days we're barely familiar with half the nominees, and the show is usually pure tedium. (Don't even get us started on that Beach Boys tribute thing last year.) But for movie buffs looking to maintain their awards season high, yesterday's announcement of Grammy nominees did bring with it some films that are looking to collect gold from their pals in the music biz.

Thanks to the Grammys' wonky eligibility window, the nominees in the Soundtrack, Score and Song categories are a bit of an oddball collection of folks. So for instance, the nominees for Best Score are made up of three nominees from last year's Oscars, a duo who should've been nominated (Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross) and someone who will hopefully get recognized this year (Hans Zimmer). Meanwhile, the songs by Arcade Fire and Taylor Swift from "The Hunger Games" suggest they shouldn't be counted out at the Oscars either, while in Soundtracks, "Rock Of Ages" gets what will likely be one of its few legit nominations before the Razzies next year.

Check 'em out below -- awards will be handed out on February 10, 2013. [Grammy
