Journey's soundtrack, composed by Austin Wintory, just became the first video game score ever to be nominated for a Grammy.

Thatgamecompany's Journey is nominated in the Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media category alongside John Williams' The Adventure of Tintin score, Hans Zimmer's for The Dark Knight Rises, Howard Shore's soundtrack for Hugo, Ludovic Bource's The Artist score, and Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross's music for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

That's a pretty huge deal, but it shouldn't be entirely unexpected, as the Journey's score—like the rest of it—is indeed fantastic.

Wintory tweeted, "Well I don't really have words right now."
