Disney’s “Encanto” Secures Three GRAMMY Nominations

Encanto, a renowned Disney animated feature, has received three GRAMMY nominations. The historical film is up for awards in the categories of “Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media Album,” “Score Soundtrack for Visual Media,” and “Song Written for Visual Media – “We Don’t Talk About Bruno.”

The movie’s official Instagram account echoed the news with the caption, “It’s a fantastical and magical day! #Encanto just scored 3 nominations at the #GRAMMYs!”

As soon as the project’s most recent success was announced, comments from fans swamped the area.

“There is absolutely no possible way Encanto loses any category it’s being nominated for,” a person wrote,” while another one said, “Surely should win all three!!”

On November 24, 2021, Encanto, a film set in Colombia, was released in theaters. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ computer-animated musical fantasy comedy film, directed by Byron Howard and Jared Bush, has music by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

The Madrigal family is the subject of the Colombian novel Encanto. They reside in an enchanted village in the mountains. Except for one, every child in the movie has been given a special talent, such as superhuman strength or healing abilities. The sole regular kid, Mirabel Madrigal (voiced by Stephanie Beatriz), learns that the magic is in danger and will stop at nothing to protect it.

Mara Cecilia Botero, Wilmer Valderrama, Adassa, Diane Guerrero, Mauro Castillo, Angie Cepeda, Jessica Darrow, Rhenzy Feliz, and Carolina Gaitán are among the other actors in the cast in addition to Stephanie Beatriz.

The multi-hyphenate Colombian diva Carolina Gaitán sat down with HOLA! USA earlier this year to talk about the movie’s influence on her life, Latinx culture, and if she thinks Encanto will win an Oscar, Grammy, or any other impending prize.

“Oh my god, I think that’s the dream for every single actor in the world. Of course, we were not working to have a premio (award) or recognition of that kind because we are passionate about this and want to tell stories, but we want this as well!” Gaitán said.
