Howard Shore, Marilyn Bergman, Clint Eastwood

The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) presented its distinguished Henry Mancini Award to Howard Shore and its prestigious Opus Award to Clint Eastwood during the 19th annual ASCAP Film and Television Awards gala held on April 21st at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. In addition to honoring Shore and Eastwood, the event honored the composers, songwriters and publishers of the biggest box office film music and the most performed television music of the year. Over 700 members of the music industry elite attended the event, which was hosted by Academy-Award winning lyricist and President and Chairman of ASCAP, Marilyn Bergman.

One of the evening's special highlights was the presentation of the ASCAP Henry Mancini Award to Oscar, Golden Globe, and Grammy-award winning composer Howard Shore, in recognition of his outstanding achievements and contributions to the world of film and television music. Comedic actress, producer and director Penny Marshall presented the award to Shore along with Marilyn Bergman. Shore and Marshall collaborated on the box office hit Big. Past recipients of the award include Quincy Jones, Michel Legrand, Johnny Mandel, Randy Newman, James Newton Howard, Alan Silvestri, and Hans Zimmer.

ASCAP composer member Clint Eastwood was presented with the ASCAP Opus Award, which honors individuals who recognize and understand the importance of music to film. Eastwood joins a select group of directors who have previously received the award including Stanley Donen, Norman Jewison and Robert Wise. Jazz great Herbie Hancock was on hand to help Bergman make the presentation to Eastwood.

ASCAP Opus Award Honoring
Clint Eastwood

indexClint Eastwood has been a premier box-office star for a staggering 38 years. In an industry that has defined fame as fleeting, he is truly an icon. He is an actor, director, producer, film composer and an ASCAP member! Most recently, his Malpaso Productions film, Mystic River, was nominated for six Academy Awards, with Sean Penn and Tim Robbins winning for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor, awards that are also a tribute to the director.

ASCAP Henry Mancini Award Honoring Howard Shore

indexHoward Shore, this year's recipient of the ASCAP Henry Mancini Award, has been one of film & television music's most distinctive and versatile composers for more than 25 years. Shore received Best Original Score Academy Awards for his scores for two films of the Tolkien trilogy, The Fellowship of the Ring and The Return of the King, as well as the Best Song Oscar for the "Into the West," a song co-written by Shore, Fran Walsh and Annie Lennox for The Return of the King.

Another highlight of the evening was a tribute by Henry Mancini's daughter, Monica, who performed the songs "Dear Heart" and "Two for the Road," in honor of her father.  ASCAP renamed its "Golden Soundtrack Award" in honor of Mancini in 1996 to pay tribute to one of the most successful music composers in the history of film and television. 2004 marks the 80th birthday year of Mancini, and on April 13th of this year, a commemorative U.S. postage stamp was issued in his honor.  

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger sent a letter congratulating ASCAP on its 90th birthday, and all of the award winners including Clint Eastwood, Howard Shore, and Marco Beltrami who was honored for his score to Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines.

indexThe U.S. Postal Service has issued 80 million commemorative stamps to immortalize the achievements of celebrated ASCAP film and television composer, Henry Mancini. Hank, whose hit songs and film scores are known to us all, received 20 Grammys and four Academy Awards. His albums have sold more than 30 million copies. The world lost Hank ten years ago. He would have celebrated his 80th birthday this year.

A first-day-of-issue dedication ceremony took place on April 13 at Music Center Plaza, which was hosted by former U.S. Senator John Glenn and featured the USC Trojan Marching Band performing classic Mancini compositions. Renowned flutist Sir James Galway also performed with 100 high school flutists from throughout California. Postmaster General John E. Potter and S. David Fineman, chairman of the presidentially appointed U.S. Postal Service Board of Governors, made the presentation.

Later that evening, a special tribute concert was held at Walt Disney Concert Hall, co-hosted by Senator Glenn and longtime Mancini family friend, Julie Andrews. The concert featured Michael Feinstein, Quincy Jones, Monica Mancini, John Williams and the Henry Mancini Institute Alumni Orchestra, conducted by Patrick Williams, with all proceeds benefiting the Henry Mancini Institute (HMI).

Henry Mancini became a member of ASCAP in 1952 and served on the Board of Directors from 1967 to 1971. In 1988, at ASCAP's Film and Television Music Awards, he received the Society's Golden Soundtrack Award. The award was then re-named in his honor in 1996. Since his death, ASCAP and The ASCAP Foundation have continued to work with Ginny Mancini and the HMI to continue Hank's commitment to the global importance of music and arts education. ASCAP is proud to celebrate 2004 and The Year of Mancini.
