VFX Guardians of the Galaxy

Dave Jordan, the music supervisor behind the calendar year’s box office champ of 2014, “Guardians of the Galaxy,” emerged as one of the big winners at Wednesday night’s fifth annual Guild of Music Supervisors Awards at Mack Sennett Studios in Los Angeles. Jordan’s work, given for a film with a budget of more than $25 million, also helped propel the film’s recording of ’70s and ’80s music to last year’s second best-selling soundtrack, eclipsed only by “Frozen.”

Other award recipients for film included Season Kent, the music supervisor behind Fox’s low-budget romantic hit “The Fault In Our Stars,” for a film under $25 million; Matt Sullivan and Andrea von Foerster for the music biz drama, “Begin Again” (under $10 million); and Andy Ross for “Whiplash,” a surprise winner over “Boyhood” in the under $5 million category.

Frankie Pine took the prize for season three of ABC’s music-driven “Nashville” in the TV comedy/musical category, while Madonna Wade-Reed won the TV drama award for season two of the CW’s “Reign.” Clyde Lieberman and Jill Meyers copped kudos for reality television for their efforts in seasons six and seven of “The Voice,” and PJ Bloom triumphed in TV long form/movies for HBO’s “The Normal Heart.”

Cybele Pettus won for her work in the electronic game “FIFA 15”; JT Griffith for best use of music for a brand (Nike); and Vanessa Jorge won the trailer award for the teaser to “Inherent Vice” (Aspect Ratio is the trailer house).

Media Arts Lab, Walt Disney Studios and 20th Century Fox won for their overall music work by an agency, film studio and TV studio, respectively.
