The Hollywood Music in Media Awards (HMMA) announced today the nominees for music in film, TV, video games, commercials and trailers. The HMMA nominations have historically been representative of the nominees of other key awards shows later in the season.  With over 500 submissions this year, HMMA nominees are chosen in specific genres of music for film, TV and video game including dramatic feature, sci-fi/ fantasy, documentary and animation. HMMA nominees represent music for visual media from around the world. Nominees this year include music for A Star Is Born, Black Panther, If Beale Street Could Talk, BlacKkKlansman, Mandy, and Quincy. Last year, HMMA added the new category, “Best Music Documentary” which recognizes a documentary about music that educates, exemplifies the process, and/or displays the impact of music or a musician. The 2018 Hollywood Music in Media Awardst will be held at The Avalon Hollywood on Wednesday, November 14. A portion of proceeds  benefit Education Through Music--Los Angeles (ETMLA). 

The HMMA includes presentations, performances and a special achievement award.  The HMMA recognizes musical excellence in visual media.  Past honorees include Diane Warren, Smokey Robinson, Glen Campbell, Dave Mason, Christopher Young and John Debney.  HMMA performances have included a choir performing Til it Happens To you from The Hunting Ground, Birdman composer Antonio Sanchez, and The New Radicals founding members Gregg Alexander and Danielle Brisboise performing on stage for the first time in 15 years; they performed their song Lost Stars from the film Begin Again.  All these films later garnered Oscar and/or Golden Globe music nominations.  Special guests and presenters have included Randy Jackson (American Idol), legendary musicians Verdine White and Ralph Johnson (Earth, Wind and Fire), Gregg Alexander (New Radicals), Gilby Clarke (Guns n’ Roses), Adam Gaynor (Matchbox 20), award-winning songwriters Stephen Bishop, Ray Parker Jr., Melissa Manchester, Melanie, actors Eric Roberts, Jane Fonda, Natasha Henstridge, and director Andy Fickman.  

The HMMA nominations are selected by an advisory board and selection committee which includes journalists, music executives, music-media industry professionals comprised of select members of the Society of Composers and Lyricists (SCL), The Television Academy, the AMPAS Music Branch, NARAS and performing rights organizations.
