Music in Media / The 2012 Guild Of Music Supervisors Awards (Nominees and Winners)

By Amanda DK

 

Yesterday morning, key players in the field of music supervision all gathered at Magnolia Downtown to honor the outstanding accomplishments of their peers.  The crowd, comprised of music libraries, labels, publishers, studio executives and independent supervisors large and small, was chatty and buoyant (possibly due to the free flowing champagne, mimosas and bellinis), packing the restaurant and spilling out onto both the front and rear patios.  As always, with this tight knit community, it felt more like a casual garden party than a formal affair.  Presenters giggled their way through the lists of nominees, and tossed out industry inside jokes on the fly.  Even a few technical difficulties couldn’t dampen the mood.

Film + TV / Your Music In Media Guide to the 54th Annual Grammy Awards

By Amanda DK

It seems as though the 54th Annual Grammy Awards have received more flak from the indie community this year than any other year (in my memory at least).  Weren’t we all over “Grenade” by last February? Didn’t Mumford and Sons Sigh No More come out in 2009?  Bon Iver for Best New Artist?  For Emma, Forever Ago was released in 2008.  And if the music community scoffed (mostly) anonymously into the social media ether, Justin Vernon made his reaction public.

To be honest, the music in media categories feel similar.  Burlesque, Tangled and The King’s Speech all received nods during awards season last winter.  The public has moved on.  After this though, the only major awards show left is the Oscars, which has already caused discomfort in the music supervision world for only nominating two songs and then not inviting either to perform.
