ASCAP Henry Mancini Award winners were well represented with scoring giant Hans Zimmer winning for Wonder Woman 1984, prolific screen music guru Michael Giacchino winning for his score to blockbuster video game Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond and film music legend John Powell winning for The Call of the Wild.
