‘Euphoria,’ ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Among Guild of Music Supervisors Awards Nominees

Nominees for the 2020 Guild of Music Supervisors (GMS) Awards were announced today. The annual event is scheduled for Feb. 6 at the Wiltern Theater and coincides with the tenth anniversary of the GMS.

Films up for awards include  “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood,” “Frozen II,” “Aladdin,” “Ford v Ferrari,” “The Irishman,” “Hustlers” and “Wild Rose,” among others.

Television shows nominated include “Euphoria” (alongside Jen Malone, newcomer Adam Leber, Maverick partner and manager of Miley Cyrus, Lil Nas X and Labrinth, shares a music supervision credit); “Pose,” supervised by the dynamo trio of Amanda Krieg Thomas, Alexis Martin Woodall and Ryan Murphy; and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” an Emmy winner in the music supervision category, although the GMS lists only Robin Urdang, where the Television Academy also recognized showrunners Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino.

Among the songs nominated are: “Spirit” from “The Lion King,” “Into The Unknown” from “Frozen II,” “Don’t Call Me Angel” from “Charlie’s Angels,” “Invisible Ink” from “This Is Us,” “Jenny of Oldstrones” from “Game of Thrones” and “On a Roll” from “Black Mirror.”

Additional categories span trailers, video games, advertising, documentaries and reality television.

Also set to be honored with the Icon Award is Academy Award-winning veteran composer and lyricist Burt Bacharach; Bob Hunka, seasoned music producer and former Sony Television executive whose credits include the live soundtracks for Barbra Streisand’s “A Star Is Born” and the soundtracks to “Dawson’s Creek” and “Party of Five,” will receive the Legacy Award.

Said newly-elected GMS president Joel C High in unveiling the nominees: “In 10 short years we have progressed from four awards given out at a brunch on Grammy Morning, to an event at The Wiltern with 16 trophies awarded in the growing fields of music supervision including games, ads, trailers, documentaries, as well as film and television. We are extremely excited by the list of nominees this year and I am personally humbled to be able to honor Burt Bacharach and Bob Hunka as our Icon and Legacy award recipients.  This year marks a milestone in many ways for the Guild and I am thrilled to be a part of it.”
