Nominees for this year’s ASCAP Composers’ Choice Awards have been announced, with scores for films like “Dune” and “The Power of the Dog,” TV series like “Loki” and “The White Lotus” and video games like “Call of Duty” among the contenders.

These competitive awards, voted on by members of ASCAP, will be given out during the week of May 2 as part of the 2022 ASCAP Screen Music Awards, alongside the non-voted honors that reward the composers of the most-performed scores and themes of the year.

Up for film score of the year are Hans Zimmer, for “Dune”; Germaine Franco, for “Encanto”; Daniel Hart, for “The Green Knight”; Dan Romer, for “Luca”; and Radiohead member-turned-maestro Jonny Greenwood for “The Power of the Dog.”

Zimmer, Franco and Greenwood have already been nominated for the Academy Awards this month for their work on those films.

Nods for television score went to Michael Abels, for “Allen v. Farrow”; the team of Leo Birenberg and Zach Robinson, for the third season of “Cobra Kai”; another team — Drum & Lace and Ian Hultquist — for seasons 2 and 3 of “Dickinson” (both seasons fell into the calendar-year-2021 time frame); Natalie Holt for “Loki”; Lorne Balfe for “Wheel of Time”; and Cristobal Tapia de Veer for “The White Lotus.”

The performing rights organization became the first of the PROs to have its members vote on competitive honors, starting in 2014.

Last year’s winners included “Soul,” “Lovecraft Country,” “The Last of Us Part II,” “Tales from the Loop” and ““David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet.”
