"Composer and lyricist Marc Shaiman will be honored with the Icon Award at the ninth annual Guild of Music Supervisors Awards, taking place Feb. 13 at the Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles.
The “Hairspray” and “Smash” tunesmith will be performing “The Place Where Lost Things Go,” the “Mary Poppins Returns” ballad he co-wrote with Scott Wittman, at the ceremony. “Lost Things” is nominated for the original song Oscar, and he’s also up for composing the score for the Disney sequel. Winning either would give Shaiman an EGOT, since he already claims an Emmy, Grammy and Tony.
Also performing at the show is Aimee Mann, who’ll sing “Drive,” a song from “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” that’s up for a guild award in the song for TV category. Lukas Nelson, one of the musical forces behind “A Star Is Born,” will perform a yet-to-be-announced selection from among the songs he worked on for that soundtrack.
The event celebrates achievements in music supervision, recognizing work in 18 categories in movies, television, games, advertising and trailers.
As previously announced, Joel Sill will be given the Legacy Award. Presenters include women’s rights attorney Gloria Allred, director Taylor Hackford, actor Rafael Casal and director Rob Morrow."
