BAFTA Nominates 4 ASCAP Composers for 2016 Awards

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) has nominated four ASCAP film composers for Best Original Score at the 2016 EE British Academy Film Awards.

Nominee Ennio Morricone recently won the Golden Globe for his BAFTA-nominated score to The Hateful Eight; he has won five previous BAFTAs. Jóhann Jóhannson's nomination marks his second consecutive nod, following his 2015 nomination for The Theory of Everything. Ryuichi Sakamoto has been a BAFTA finalist twice before, winning in 1984 for Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence. This is Alva Noto's first nomination.

With film awards season in full swing, once again, the music of ASCAP's international family of composers is leading the pack! 

BAFTA will announce the winners on February 14th, 2016. Congratulations to all four of our nominated composers.
