Patrick Doyle Honored by ASCAP

There were nods to the future as well as the past at ASCAP’s 28th annual Film and TV Music Awards. The performing rights org’s Paul Williams encouraged those in attendance June 20 at the BevHilton to snap each other’s pictures and Twitter them hither and yon, whether they wanted to be Twittered or not. And a 94-year-old Ray Charles — not the Ray Charles as played by Jamie Foxx in the movie but a Ray Charles who’s talented nonetheless — was honored for lifetime achievements that included 35 years as composer-arranger with Perry Como and singing the theme song for “Three’s Company.”

But the night’s crowning kudo, the Henry Mancini Award, went to film composer Patrick Doyle, who’s worked repeatedly with Kenneth Branagh (“Hamlet,” “Much Ado”) and Mike Newell (“Donnie Brasco,” “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”).

“It’s a huge deal,” said Doyle. “This is as good as it gets as far as being recognized by your peers. It’s a top-drawer award.”

Asked if competing music rights org BMI ever approached him about being a member, Doyle replied that he was approached “after I joined ASCAP. It was 25 years ago, I can’t remember.”
