About the Hollywood Music in Media Awards

The Hollywood Music in Media Awards (HMMA) announced today the nominees for music in film, TV, videogames, commercials and trailers. The HMMA nominations have historically been representative of the nominees of key awards shows that are announced months later. Music nominees are chosen in specific genres for films including dramatic feature, Sci-Fi Fantasy, documentary and animation. Two years ago, the Golden Globe nominees for score matched the HMMA’s selections. HMMA nominees represent visual music from around the world including Spain, UK, Argentina, France, Norway and Australia. The 2016 HMMA event will be held at The Fonda Theater 6126 Hollywood Blvd on Thursday, November 17, 2016. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Education Through Music – Los Angeles (ETMLA). For tickets and additional information you can visit hmmawards.com.

The HMMA includes presentations, performances and a special achievement award.  The HMMA recognizes musical excellence in visual media as well as an individual who has made a significant impact in music or the music community.  Past honorees include Smokey Robinson, Glen Campbell, Dave Mason, Christopher Young and John Debney.  Past HMMA performances have included a choir performing Til it Happens To you from The Hunting GroundBirdman composer Antonio Sanchez, and The New Radicals founding members Gregg Alexander and Danielle Brisboise performing on stage for the first time in 15 years; they performed their song Lost Stars from the film Begin Again.  All these films later garnered Oscar and/or Golden Globe music nominations.  Presenters have included Verdine White of Earth, Wind and Fire, Gilby Clarke of Guns n’ Roses, award-winning songwriter Stephen Bishop, actor Eric Roberts, Adam Gaynor of Matchbox 20 and director Andy Fickman.

The HMMA is the only award that specifically recognizes music in all visual media. The HMMA nominations are selected by an advisory board and selection committee which includes journalists, music executives, songwriters and composers.  The winners are determined by music-media industry professionals comprised of select members of the Society of Composers and Lyricists (SCL), The Television Academy, the AMPAS Music Branch, NARAS, performing rights organizations, film music journalists, and music executives.
