This past weekend the Guild of Music Supervisors hosted their very first awards brunch, honoring music supervisors from film, television, video games and movies of the week.


The Guild first came into being in 2007, shortly after music supervisors were included as voting members in The Recording Academy.  From there, and due largely to herculean efforts by Co-Founder and President, Maureen Crowe (Wayne’s World, Chicago), it’s experienced a slow but very steady growth – from the birth of a Facebook page (which now has over 2,500 supporters), to the inclusion of a music supervision category at the Hollywood Music and Media Awards, a fancy new website, and now an official awards brunch during Grammy week.  According to an article in Monday’s Hollywood Reporter, there is much more to come: a the first summit meeting in June and hopefully not long after, health benefits for members.

Check out the list nominees and winners (highlighted in red) below.  Chances are you already know their work very well – collectively they are responsible for putting the music in most of your favorite films and TV shows…
