Since 2012, the category has been known as Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media.

Years reflect the year in which the Grammy Awards were presented, for music released in the previous year. The award is presented to the artist or artists of a majority of tracks and/or the producer or producers of a majority of tracks on the album. In the absence of either, then the award goes to the individual(s) actively responsible for the musical direction of the album. Music supervisors became eligible in this category in 2019.[1]
