The winners of this year’s Guild of Music Supervisors Awards are in, and women have dominated the space! Music Supervisor Mandi Collier (Film category) took home two Best Music Supervision awards (for Sylvie’s Love and Zola); Liza Richardson (Television category) (“Narcos”, “The Watchmen”) for “Lovecraft Country” Season 1, and Raphaelle Lima (Video Games category) for FIFA 22! The ceremony also honored Diane Warren (Pearl Harbor, Armageddon) with the Icon Award, and Mitchell Leib (The Muppets, “Grey’s Anatomy”) with the Legacy Award. Congratulations to all the winners at this year’s awards!
The delightful and impossibly cute Robin Robinstop-motion film (Netflix/Aardman) picked up the Best Original Music award at this year’s British Animation Awards! British musicians The Bookshop Band (Beth Porter and Ben Please) are instrumental for composing the music to this “exquisite” (The Independent) short film. Combined with the expertise of four-time Academy Award®-winning studio Aardman Animations (Shaun The Sheep, Wallace & Gromit) and the winning score, it was no surprise that Robin Robin (also an Academy Award® nominee) has earned the well-deserved accolades. Join us as we congratulate the entire team and have a listen at the award-winning soundtrack!
Jane Campion’s critically-acclaimed The Power of the Dog film (Netflix/See-Saw Films) had quite a weekend! At this year’s BAFTA Awards, the western took the Best Film and Best Director awards! Featuring powerhouse performances by Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst, Kodi Smit-McPhee, and Jesse Plemons, and an incredible score by Jonny Greenwood, The Power of the Dog was also honored with eight nominations in all.
