Walsh scores a Grammy to go with Rings Oscars
15 February 2005
Wellington film-maker Fran Walsh now has a Grammy to keep her three Oscar statuettes company.
Walsh shared a Grammy with composer Howard Shore and singer Annie Lennox for the song Into the West from Peter Jackson's The Return of the King.
The trio scooped the best song written for a motion picture, television or other visual media category at the top American music awards show in Los Angeles last night.
Walsh was not at the ceremony. As co-writer and co-producer of King Kong, she is required for filming in Wellington.
Shore also won a Grammy for best soundtrack score for a film, television or other visual media category for The Return of the King.
