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 occur months later.  HMMA nominees are chosen in specific genres for film, TV and videogame including dramatic feature, sci-fi/ fantasy, documentary and animation. HMMA nominees represent visual music from around the world including Spain, UK, Argentina, France, Norway and Australia.  This year, HMMA has added the category, “Best Music Documentary.” The new award recognizes a documentary about music that educates, exemplifies the process, and/or displays the impact of music. The 2017 HMMA event will be held at The Avalon Hollywood 1735 Vine Street on Thursday, November 16, 2017. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Education Through Music – Los Angeles (ETMLA).
