On Thursday, November 16, the 8th edition of the Hollywood Music In Media Awards will be held at the Avalon Hollywood in Los Angeles.
These awards aim to honor the musical excellence in the visual media (film, television, video games, advertising ….) both for major artists and emerging artists from around the world, and it is considered that the results obtained are usually good predictions for the categories of best song and best soundtrack in the Golden Globes and in the Oscars.
