Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Taylor Swift are among the artists nominated at the 13th annual Guild of Music Supervisors Awards, which recognize the craft of music supervision in film, television, games, advertising and trailers. All three were recognized in the best song category.

“Elvis” and “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” tied with three nominations apiece, including Best Music Supervision for Film Budgeted Over $25 Million, Best Song Written and/or Recorded for a Film, and Best Music Supervision in a Trailer – Film.

“We’re so excited to be back and able to host the awards ceremony in-person at the Wiltern again,” said GMS President Joel C. High and Vice President Madonna Wade-Reed in a joint statement. “We’ve got a great show lined up for this year which will include: live performances, special tributes, and more! We’ll also be live-streaming for those unable to join us in person so they can tune in virtually. The Guild is looking forward to celebrating even more music supervisors, artists, and performers with the addition of our new categories and increase in nominees.”

The GMS Icon Award and Legacy Award bestowing recognition to an artist and a music supervisor whose role in the industry reaches excellence will be announced shortly.

The awards will return to the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles on March 5 with an in-person and virtual awards gala. Among the awards presented, a new category for video game composers and music supervisors has also been introduced recoginizing excellence in the field.
