Nominated for two, winner of one.
The 33rd annual ASCAP Screen Music Awards took place at The Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, California this past Wednesday and if you missed the event you can catch up on some of the winners here.
The biggest winner of the evening was perhaps John Powell. The 58-year-old composer was awarded the ASCAP Henry Mancini Award for his achievements and contributions to the film and TV industry.
Powell is prolific as they come, having scored over 60 films that include How to Train Your Dragon (for which he was Oscar-nominated), Ferdinand, as well as several of the Bourne films.
Three ASCAP Composer’s Choice winners were also announced; these awards are voted on exclusively by the ASCAP composer and songwriter community. Dave Porter won TV Composer of the Year for his work on Better Call Saul, Preacher, The Blacklist, and more. Jonny Greenwood and Hans Zimmer tied for Film Score of the Year with Phantom Thread, and Dunkirk, respectively.
Others that were nominated for Video Game Score of the Year include C. Paul Johnson, Skye Lewin and Michael Salvatori (Destiny 2), Wilbert Roget II (Call of Duty: WWII), Sarah Schachner (Assassin’s Creed Origins), and Austin Wintory (Tooth and Tail).
ASCAP has shared a recap video of the evening on its YouTube Channel which you can watch below.
