Alberto Iglesias has scored himself a special prize…
The 66-year-old Spanish composer, a three-time Oscar nominee, is one of the winners announced at this year’s Hollywood Music in Media Awards.
Iglesias, who frequently works on projects by Pedro Almodovar, took home the award for Score – Independent Film (Foreign Language) for his work on the Oscar-winning Spanish filmmaker’s latest project, Parallel Mothers.
Exact comparisons between the Academy Awards and the HMMAs are tricky, because the Oscars present just two music awards — best original song and best original score — while the HHMAs present five awards for film songs and seven for film scores.
But Iglesias is considered to be one of this year’s HMMA winners who could be a serious contender for an Academy Award nominations for best original score.
The Hollywood Music in Media Awards honor composers, songwriters, music supervisors and filmmakers for their work in music for film, television and video games.
