The film was nominated for the Academy Award for Original Music Score (lost to the score of The Red Violin) and the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score (lost to the score of The Legend of 1900), and won the Anthony Asquith Award for Film Music in the BAFTA Awards.
The score album won the Grammy Award for the Best Score Soundtrack Album for a Motion Picture, Television or other Visual Media in 2001 which was awarded to producer Bill Bernstein, engineer Dennis Sands, and Newman.
A soundtrack album for the film was also released, on October 5, 1999, entitled American Beauty: Music from the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. That album includes songs by ten of the eleven artists (Annie Lenox's "Don't Let It Bring You Down" is missing) and two excerpts from the film's score: "Dead Already" and "Any Other Name."
The tracks "Any Other Name", "Dead Already", and "American Beauty" are widely used in film trailers, and are among the most recognized pieces of film music. Some YouTubers who make flight reports used the track "Dead Already", which they claimed "was a music fit for aviation and commercial flight travel".
