HMMA Honors "Black Panther" and "A Star is Born"

We're not sure why or how the Hollywood Music in Media Awards came about but they're now in their ninth year honoring musicians in a few buckets worth of categories across all visual media. Their winners are determined by committee and like the NBR, who people tease for divvying up their prizes in a way that insures each studio buys a table at their banquet, there's a little something for everyone. The only multiple winners were Black Panther (Original Score -Scifi/Fantasy, Original Song - Scifi/Fantasy & Soundtrack Album), and A Star is Born (Music Supervision & Original Song).

The winners are after the jump though we're not listing the nominees because it's one of those silly awards shows that seems to have no consistency about how many nominees each category is allowed to have. All that said, you might see some of these winners again on the Oscar nomination lists, though...

I know that everyone sees Original Song as Lady Gaga's to lose yet... dare I say that SZA and Kendrick Lamar would be very worthy winners?

Worthy, maybe. But nothing is stopping the Shallow train. Even the many who hated the movie loved that song/scene.

Great to see Max Richter and Thomas Ades as winners for their film scores. It's not often that modern composers working in the classical mode get this kind of attention. Now if only John Adams can have his music score a film similar to I Am Love that would be honoring a maestro.

LOL. It's so ridiculous when awards split between "feature film" and then sci-fi/animation/documentary/independent film like they're not also features.
