The Hollywood Music in Media Awards (HMMA) announced the nominees for music in film, TV, videogames, commercials and trailers. The HMMA nominations have historically been representative of the nominees of key awards shows that are announced months later.  Music nominees are chosen in specific genres for films including dramatic feature, sci-fi fantasy, documentary and animation. HMMA nominees represent visual music from around the world including Spain, UK, Argentina, France, Norway and Australia.  The 2016 HMMA event will be held at The Fonda Theater 6126 Hollywood Blvd on Thursday, November 17. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Education Through Music-Los Angeles (ETMLA).
 
The HMMA is the only award that specifically recognizes music in all visual media. The HMMA nominations are selected by an advisory board and selection committee which includes journalists, music executives, songwriters and composers.  The winners are determined by music-media industry professionals comprised of select members of the Society of Composers and Lyricists (SCL), The Television Academy, the AMPAS Music Branch, NARAS, performing rights organizations, film music journalists, and music executives.
