Billboard: L.A. Film Critics Awards: Jonny Greenwood & Mica Levi Tie in Best Music Score Category

Written by

The Los Angeles Film Critics Association met on December 7 to vote for their annual awards.

That afternoon it announced that Jonny Greenwood (Inherent Vice) and Mica Levi (Under the Skin) tied for best music score. This is the only tie of the year following three ties last year in the best picture (Gravity and Her), best actress (Blue Is the Warmest Color’s Adele Exarchopoulos and Blue Jasmine’s Cate Blanchett) and best supporting actor (James Franco and Dallas Buyer Club’s Jared Leto) categories.

Billboard notes that most LAFCA best picture winners have gone on to be Oscar contenders, and all best director winners have done so.

LAFCA announced that actress Gena Rowlands and former LAFCA president Leonard Martin will be honored at the LAFCA’s dinner on January 10 at the InterContinental Hotel in Century City.

The New York Film Critics Circle also announced their choice for best use of music, naming music supervisor Budd Carr and composer Thomas Newman victorious for their work on Get On Up - The James Brown Story. Johnny Greenwood scooped up a second award for best use of music in a film for Inherent Vice from the Boston Society of Film Critics.

The newly revised, definitive book on music supervision, which guides you through real-world scenarios and legal landmines, explores sound design, and profiles key players.

Music supervision, or matching music to all the different mediums from films to ring tones, is one of the fastest-growing careers in the music industry, but finding the winning song for a national ad campaign or compiling a platinum movie soundtrack takes more than just good taste.

This book guides you through real scenarios and legal landmines you might encounter; it explores sound design and profiles key players with insightful interviews, while providing project form templates that will save time for seasoned music supervisors.

This is the only guide to the career of music supervision and is ideal for the music student, musician, industry executive and of course, for those who want to break into the field of music supervision. Authors David Weiss, Ramsay Adams and David Hnatiuk are all renowned figures in the procurement and supervision of music and they apply their combined knowledge and experience to give the best possible advice and tell you how to get the job!
