VARIETY: THE HOLLYWOOD MUSIC IN MEDIA AWARDS NOV 21, 2013
The Hollywood Music in Media Awards Ceremony was absolutely spectacular. My publicist, John Russel, was so great at getting me, my husband and our fan club ( family and friends attended from Portland, Seattle, Huntington Beach and Vancouver B.C. Canada, a total of 9 guests) through ahead of the line for entering the Fonda Theater. We arrived about 5pm, driven by Max, in his Bentley. A pretty nice crowd had began filing up to enter the theater and start the Red Carpet. I had some photos with the press and then 3 interviews. I should have photos and links soon to share in a new blog in the next couple of days.
After the Red Carpet and interviews we headed to our Diamond Banquet Table, close tot he front stage, watched a stellar show of nominees performing, at a great dinner and then the winners were announced by Adam Gaynor, Eric Roberts and Andy Fickman. All these guys were great Emcees.
“Nominations are determined by a five-person advisory board that includes composers John Debney and Christopher Young; ASCAP senior director of film & TV music Michael Todd; singer-songwriter and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Dave Mason; and Del Breckenfeld, director of entertainment marketing at Fender Musical Instruments Corp. The winners are then voted on by approximately 100 pros comprised of music supervisors, studio and network music execs, composers and songwriters.” Variety by Steve Chagollan
I’m adding photos and video from the HMMA, Hollyood Music in Media Awards. I’ve been in touch with several of the award winners and nominees. It’s really great to connect with people and share what we all do. So many excellent composers, singer songwriters were in this Awards competition. Some of the people I have connected with, via Facebook or email include Trevor Sewell from the Trevor Sewell Band and winner of the HMMA Best Blues category Award for his song, The Train, the winner in my category, Best Contemporary/ Orchestral/ Instrumental, Alberto de La Rocha from Spain and winner of the Best Adult Contemporary song, songwriter Debra Gussin.
It was an honor to be on that long list of composers in my category, some very talented people.
