The Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media has been awarded since 1988 and is awarded to songs written for films, television, video games or other visual media. Through the years, it has gone through several name changes:

  • 1988–1999: The Grammy Award for Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or Television
  • 2000–2011: The Grammy Award for Best Song Written for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media
  • 2012–present: The Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media

The award goes to the composer(s) of the winning song, not to the performing artist(s) (except if the artist is also the composer).

Years reflect the year in which the Grammy Awards were presented, for works released in the previous year.

^ "The Climb", written by Jessi Alexander and Jon Mabe and featured in Hannah Montana: The Movie, was originally nominated but was withdrawn by Walt Disney Records because it had not been written specifically for a film as the category's eligibility rules require. NARAS released a statement thanking Disney for its honesty and announcing that "The Climb" had been replaced by "All Is Love", the song with the fifth highest initial votes.[1]
