Fans of The Hunger Games rejoiced on Sunday as the franchise took home a Grammy award for Taylor Swift and her fellow songwriters’ “Safe and Sound.”
Taylor Swift, T. Bone Burnett, John Paul White and Joy Williams won the Grammy earlier on Sunday during the pre-telecast segment of the awards ceremony for Best Song Written for Visual Media. Another award given during this time was Producer of the Year, Non-Classical, which went to Dan Auerbach.
After receiving the award, Swift tweeted, “WE JUST WON A GRAMMY FOR SAFE AND SOUND!!!!!!!!!!”
“Safe and Sound” won the Grammy over another song featured in The Hunger Games, “Abraham’s Daughter” by Arcade Fire. Arcade Fire didn’t go home empty-handed, however. The band took home a Grammy for Album of the Year.
Other contenders in Swift’s category were “Learn Me Right” from Brave and “Man or Muppet” for The Muppets.
The winner for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media went to Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Soon after winning, Reznor tweeted, “Why thanks, y'all.”
Overall, it was a great night for movies in the Grammy’s. Later Sunday night, Swift posted an Instagram stating she’d be celebrating the award with her cat.
