ASCAP Members Clinch 13 Annie Award Noms

12 composers and songwriters from ASCAP's global film and television music community have been nominated for the 40th Annual Annie Awards, honoring excellence in the field of animation. The Annies, presented by the International Animated Film Society (ASIFA-Hollywood), are known as Animation's highest honor.

Among ASCAP's nominees are a number of Annie Award veterans: John Powell, a four-time Annie winner, nominated twice this year including a nod for his third Ice Age film in a row; ASCAP Golden Note honoree Alf Clausen, who has earned five previous Annies for his music for The Simpsons; Henry Jackman, who has had five previous nominations and one win; GrooveLily members Brendan Milburn and Valerie Vigoda, who were also nominated last year; and 2009 Annie nominee Cinco Paul.

The 40th Annual Annie Awards will take place on February 2nd, 2013 at UCLA's Royce Hall, in Los Angeles, CA.

A big hearty round of applause for all of our illustrious nominees!
