Awards season is just around the corner, and "Orange Is The New Black" has already scored an unlikely nod. The Netflix original series' theme song, "You've Got Time" by Regina Spektor, was nominated for a Grammy for Best Song Written For Visual Media. This is Spektor's first Grammy nom.
Spektor wrote the song exclusively for the show's creator, Jenji Kohan. They first collaborated together on Kohan's "Weeds" when Spektor covered the show's theme, "Little Boxes."
Spektor told Rolling Stone that Kohan sent her unfinished episodes as inspiration for the theme song. "I got to really experience the world of the show and got to see what the characters were really like and it kind of helped me finish the song," she said.
"OINTB" fans will know the song quite well if they binge-watched the entire series in a few days. Vulture's Lindsey Weber even called it "a nice palate cleanser between each episode."
Perhaps the judges will agree and give Spektor and the girls in orange that golden Grammy.
