Awards season is in full swing, & perhaps the most reputable of them all – The Academy Awards – has recently revealed its list of nominees for the 86th edition. While categories such as Best Picture or the respective Actors in a Leading Role will certainly garner the most press, we at the Guild want to carve out this space to recognize the most distinguished as it relates to music in film. We extend our most sincere congratulations to all the supes, composers, editors & studios that earned one of our craft’s highest honors – the Oscar nod.

And the nominees are…
