Hugh Jackman's The Greatest Showman takes the Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media
There's no denying the success of The Greatest Showman, lapping up award after award since it's release back in late 2017, but now, they've hit the pinnacle in terms of the music side of the film, bagging the award for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media at this year's GRAMMYs!

The grungy the superstar didn't take home an award this year, but Post Malone gave an iconic performance as he teamed up with Red Hot Chilli Peppers for a scorching set.
