Composer Henry Jackman nabbed top honors for his “Captain Phillips” music at the sixth annual Hollywood Music in Media Awards on Thursday night, winning the best feature film score trophy.

Also at the event, which took place at the Fonda Theatre in Hollywood, the collection of traditional folk songs for the upcoming film “Inside Llewyn Davis,” produced by T Bone Burnett and the Coen brothers, won the soundtrack laurel; and composer Jeff Beal, a winner for his feature work in the event’s inaugural ceremony in 2008, won best TV score for the Netflix series “House of Cards.”

Among the 37 winners, additional kudos were doled out to Robin Urdang for outstanding music supervision for film (“Thanks for Sharing”); Mark Wike for his music supervision on CBS’ “NCIS”; Bear McCreary for original theme music for a TV show (AMC’s “Walking Dead”); Kathryn Gallagher for song in a feature film (“Damaged,” from “Thanks for Sharing”); David Schwartz, Mitch Hurwitz and Gabriel Mann for song in a TV show (“Getaway” from “Arrested Development”); Gary Malkin and Dan Alvarez for indie/doc/short score (“Thrive: What On Earth Will It Take?”); and Jeff Broadbent for vidgame score (“PlanetSide 2”).

Nominations are determined by a five-person advisory board that includes composers John Debney and Christopher Young; ASCAP senior director of film & TV music Michael Todd; singer-songwriter and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Dave Mason; and Del Breckenfeld, director of entertainment marketing at Fender Musical Instruments Corp. The winners are then voted on by approximately 100 pros comprised of music supervisors, studio and network music execs, composers and songwriters.
