Ron Howard, Grammy winner. The director and former child actor earned the Grammy for music film for “The Beatles: Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years,” his detailed ode to the band’s early years. Also earning trophies for the film are producers Brian Grazer, Scott Pascucci and Nigel Sinclair.“I jumped into it as a kind of irresistible life experience and creative opportunity,” Howard told the Times’ Randy Lewis after the film got nominated. “But as soon as [the news] hit the Internet, I started realizing how seismic anything having to do with the Beatles can be. I thought, ‘It’s always a high-wire act, but this one is really up there.’ So I took it very seriously, of course, as I always do.”Other nominees included “I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead,” about EDM superstar Steve Aoki; “Lemonade,” featuring Beyonce; “The Music Of Strangers,” about Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble; and “American Saturday Night: Live From The Grand Ole Opry.”
