Outside of the dedicated rock categories, Nine Inch NailsTrent Reznor and Atticus Ross won Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media alongside Jon Batiste for their work on the Disney/Pixar movie Soul, and Linkin Park‘s Mike Shinoda earned Best Remixed Recording for his remix of Deftones‘ “Passenger.”
