I have to say I was a bit surprised by Johan Johannsson taking the Golden Globe home this week for The Theory of Everything over Hans Zimmer's Interstellar and Trent Reznor's Gone Girl scores. Well yesterday The Academy Award nominations were announced (the ceremony will take place on February 22nd), and I had to rethink how these awards might go. Below are the nominations, along with my predictions, and although Reznor's Gone Girl score did not make the cut, Hans' Interstellar score is still up for an award, as is Johannsson's score for The Theory of Everything.
More awards! Last week the 57th Grammy Award nominations were announced, and just this morning the 72nd Golden Globe nominations were announced. Below are the music categories and nominations.
The nominations are out for the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, which will be held on February 8, 2015 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The Internet is all abuzz with talks and predictions since they announced the nominations last week, and I would have jumped on posting this sooner, but I was busy getting ready to score a short film called A Boy Named Bellamy, which I'll be talking about more in the next few weeks. But I digress! Here are the nominations and my predictions for the 57th Annual Grammy Awards for best music for visual media.
The Fans of Film Music Society began in 2008, when Film Score Monthly president Lukas Kendall decided to invite fans to get together and meet one another. The first official Fans of Film Music event wasn't until 2010, when Kendall passed the event leadership over to Peter Hackman. Each year, the event brings in composers and music enthusiasts of all levels, with panelists such Harry Manfredini, Chris Young, Bruce Broughton, and many other amazingly talented musicians. I have yet to make it to a gathering, but one of these days I will. For those of us who weren't able to attend this year, The Fans of Film Music Society has posted video of the panels!
