The award has been given for the DVD release. It would appear the Grammy's still make no distinction between these and opera audio only recordings. But then it wasn't until 1961 that the award was changed from Best Classical Performance, Operatic or Choral.

Award: Best Opera Recording
Wagner: Der Ring Des Nibelungen
James Levine & Fabio Luisi, conductors; Hans-Peter König, Jay Hunter Morris, Bryn Terfel & Deborah Voigt; Jay David Saks, producer (The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra; The Metropolitan Opera Chorus)
Label: Deutsche Grammophon
