Last week the nominees for this year’s Jerry Goldsmith Awards, which are on their twelfth (XII) edition, were announced by their organizers: BSOSpirit association (read news).
These veterans awards, which have a long and established trajectory through film music festivals such as Ubeda, Cordoba and Malaga (MOSMA), have the aim to recognize the work of composers in the audiovisual sector (film, television, advertising or other media), especially those who despite having a career, have not obtained the deserved recognition (follow link).
Curiously in this edition, which has had the participation of 185 composers with 387 works presented, we can see renowned composers with a long career, as well as composers who have already won an Oscar (Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross, Gustavo Santaolalla, Justin Timberlake, Mark Isham, Nicholas Britell, Daniel Pemberton or Jeff Russo).
The Jerry Goldsmith Awards are divided in eight categories; free creation form, original song, promotion & advertising, television & web series, documentary, videogame, short feature film and long feature film, plus a ninth additional category for best composer of each edition chosen among all participants.
This is the complete list of nominees:
The final winners will be announced Friday July 7th during the Gala Awards Ceremony in MOSMA festival (Movie Score Malaga) to be held from 5 to 9 of July 2017, although winners of the categories Promotion & Advertising, Original Song and Free Creation Form will be announced in the previous weeks in BSOSpirit.
