18 ASCAP Screen Music Greats Earn World Soundtrack Awards Noms
September 18, 2018
It’s another terrific awards season for ASCAP’s global family of film music mavens! The World Soundtrack Academy has nominated 18 ASCAP members and international affiliates for its 2018 World Soundtrack Awards, one of the most prestigious film music honors in Europe.
We are thrilled to see many of ASCAP’s best and brightest in the nominations pool, including ASCAP Henry Mancini Award laureates Carter Burwell, Patrick Doyle and John Powell; ASCAP Founders Award winner Diane Warren; ASCAP Vanguard Award honoree Kendrick Lamar, and also Stefan French, a 2015 participant in our Film Scoring Workshop with Richard Bellis!
In addition to the seven main categories, a Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to SACEM/ASCAP affiliate Philippe Sarde. The ceremony will conclude with a concert performed by the Brussels Philharmonic, playing the oeuvre of Carter Burwell. In keeping with tradition, ASCAP composer Nicholas Britell, winner of the Discovery of the Year Award 2017 for his score to Moonlight, will close the ceremony with an exclusive performance.
Congratulations to all of our nominated composers and songwriters:
