10th Annual IFMCA Award Nominees Announced Today

February 6, 2014

logoToday at noon EST today, the International Film Music Critics Association (of which I am a member) announced its list of nominees for excellence in musical scoring in 2013.

This year leading the pack with six nominations is composer Abel Korzeniowski (Romeo and Juliet, Escape From Tomorrow).  Other composers nominated in multiple categories include Steven Price (Gravity), and Spanish composer Roque Baños (Evil Dead).

Nominees for Film Score of the Year include Roque Bañ0s’ Evil Dead, Victor Reyes’ Grand Piano, Steven Price’s Gravity, Howard Shore’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and Abel Korzeniowski’s Romeo and Juliet.  While Romeo and Juliet has a second nomination in the Drama category, and Grand Piano in Action/Adventure/Thriller, all the rest of these nominees for Score of the Year can be found within the Fantasy/Science Fiction/Horror category, where they are nominated along with Korzeniowski’s Escape From Tomorrow, and Michael Giacchino’s Star Trek: Into Darkness rounding out the group there.

Film composer of the year has nominations for Roque Baños, Laurent Evquem, Abel Korzeniowski, Steven Price (also nominated for Breakout Film Composer of the Year), and Brian Tyler.

The animated field includes nominations for The Croods (Alan Silvestri), Epic (Danny Elfman), Planes (Mark Mancina), The Wind Rises (Joe Hisaishi), and of course the musically driven Frozen (Christophe Beck).  Film Music Composition of the Year includes selections for The Book Thief (John Williams), Escape From Tomorrow, Evil Dead, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and Romeo and Juliet.

All the rest of the nominations, including Comedy, Action/Adventure/Thriller, and Documentary are included below after the jump.
