Black Panther roars with two Grammy Award wins

King's Dead won for best rap performance and the film also won best score soundtrack for visual media.

You'll hear the sounds of Wakanda forever. Black Panther won two Grammy Awards Sunday night, one for best rap performance and one for best score soundtrack for visual media.

The best rap performance award was actually a tie. The Black Panther song King's Dead, by Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, Future and James Blake, shared the award with Bubblin, by Anderson Paak. King's Dead was also up for best rap song, but that award went to Drake's God's Plan.

The film's chart-topping soundtrack, Black Panther: The Album, was nominated for album of the year, and the single All the Stars, by Kendrick Lamar and SZA, was nominated for record of the year, song of the year and best song written for visual media.

The soundtrack was produced by Lamar and includes performances by Lamar, Travis Scott, The Weeknd, 2 Chainz and more.

Composer Ludwig Göransson was chatting with Variety when he received the news that he'd won the best score soundtrack for visual media award.

"(Director) Ryan Coogler, what can I say?" Göransson said. "He's been one of the most incredible artists I've ever worked with, and being a part of this phenomena, one of the most important, unique films of all time is so special."

Göransson didn't get to accept that award onstage, as it wasn't presented during the televised ceremony, but he did get to make a speech during the show. He helped accept the song of the year award for Childish Gambino's This Is America, which he co-produced. Gambino did not attend.

Black Panther is up for six Oscars at the Academy Awards on Feb. 24, including best picture and best original music score. And maybe it's a good sign that it didn't claim a certain award Sunday night.  According to Billboard, no film whose soundtrack has won album of the year has gone on to win best picture.
